GlobalGathering 2013 lineup announced

With live headline shows from artists including Plan B, Example, Disclosure and special guest Rita Ora, sets from the World’s top DJ’s including Jamie Jones, Nicky Romero and Annie Mac, a brand new arena from BBC Radio 1Xtra, the welcome return of the likes of Carl Cox and UKF as arena hosts, plus major new production and site development, the organisers have put together a weekend of incredible music and an amazing overall festival experience.

We’re building on 2011’s redefining event and 2012’s bumper weekend of unrivalled partying, sunshine and beats, and continuing to set standards for UK dance festivals in 2013.

Plan BNot only are we widening the diversity of music on offer to ensure every electronic music fan’s taste is catered for, we’re elevating the new generation of headliners bringing together some of the world’s biggest superstars with critically acclaimed underground talent for you to discover in 2013. With two additional arenas yet to be announced and further investment on production inspired by our global travels, we’ve ensured we’ll give our crowds the best overall experience at any UK festival this summer.

This year, the most explosive outdoor stage at any major UK festival returns with headline performances from two London-born artists who’ve risen up the ranks from their underground beginnings. The man with more strings to his bow than the London Symphony Orchestra – Plan B, will showcase both sides of his persona when he brings the soulfully bitter-sweet story of Strickland Banks to life alongside the brutally honest hip-hop journey of Ill Manors.

His fellow Londoner and Main Stage headliner Example jumps straight to the top of the Global food chain in his debut performance at the festival. The crowds should expect nothing short of the most euphoric house beats and uplifting electro vibes, along with bassier elements of dubstep and hip-hop in the live show from the man who brought us the massive number one singles Changed the Way You Kissed Me and Stay Awake. Recent hits from his newest album The Evolution of Man will be joined by the classics Kickstarts, Watch the Sun Come Up and Won’t Go Quietly – all tunes that have firmly cemented their place in the collective psyche of the dance music masses.

Example said: “I've always wanted to play GlobalGathering – my music mates have told me all about the mental crowds and atmosphere. To be making my Global debut headlining the main stage is huge for me. I'll be bringing extra fire and lasers don't you worry!”

ExampleTwo chart storming titans of UK electronic music will bring their live shows to the Main Stage for the first time this year. First up are the UK’s hottest new EDM duo, Disclosure, whose most recent single White Noise with AlunaGeorge made it to number 2 in the official charts and who were included in the Hot Ten For 2013 by BBC Radio 1Xtra. DnB quartet Rudimental, whose number 1 smasher Feel the Love was one of the tunes of summer 2012 and was followed up by the anthemic Not Giving In ft Alex Clare, also play the Main Stage having graduated from their appearance on the smaller outdoor stage in 2012.

The crowds can expect UK garage, dubstep and R&B sounds from South London songstress Katy B in her Main Stage debut, following on from her appearance on the FWD Rinse stage alongside Geeneus & Tippa in 2010.

Katy B said: "Global Gathering was the first festival I played when Katy On A Mission came out and I felt so welcome straight away. I love that it celebrates all things rave culture and I'm really excited to play this year."

Katie BThe undisputed Queen of EDM and mistress of the mash-ups, Annie Mac will take to the GlobalGathering Main Stage for the first time since 2007, following appearances over the years across other arenas. Bringing full production with her for the first time, Annie is set to deliver a mind-blowing experience to the crowds that are sure to congregate to see her show.

Joining them on the Main Stage across the two days will be a live performance from Belgian liquid funk wunderkind Netsky – whose Global debut last year was one of the most talked about performances of the weekend and has earned him a spot alongside the big guns on the Main Stage for the first time. Plus genre-busting and bass blending Major Look, electronic rockers Modestep (Live) and sultry dub and trip-hop inspired songstress Delilah (Live) will also grace the Main Stage.

Across the rest of the festival site, the first arena hosts to be announced read like a who’s who of the industry today.

Kicking off with some big news, Global are excited to announce that the UK’s home of urban music, BBC Radio 1Xtra, will host an arena at this year’s festival. Global stalwart MistaJam, who will be joined by the Eskiboy and Godfather of Grime, Wiley plus special guests Roll Deep, will commandeer the 1Xtra Arena. Wiley, whose smash hit Heatwave reached number one in the UK last summer, and more recently, has found success with Can You Hear Me (Ayayaya) charting at number three in the UK. Pioneer of the UK underground scene, leader of Roll Deep and original member of Boy Better Know, he will certainly be causing a heatwave when he takes to the mic. Chart-topping Rita Ora, whose debut album Ora reached number one in the UK, spawning three number one singles, making her the artist with the most number-one singles on the UK Singles Chart in 2012, will be making a special guest appearance. In addition to this comes support in the form of Dot Rotten, K Koke (live), Futurebound and Matrix and Devolution as well as a very special headline artist yet to be announced!

Jason Carter, Event Director, BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra said: “It's great to return to GlobalGathering with 1Xtra. We look forward to being there and are excited to broadcast the fantastic sets to a wider audience.”

GlobalGathering are also very pleased to reveal that the legendary Carl Cox & Friends Arena will make an epic return to Long Marston Airfield in 2013.

UK dubstep originator Benga will play alongside Flux Pavilion, plus Andy C & MC GQ and DnB pioneer and Digital Soundboy label owner Shy FX.

In its third year as a GlobalGathering arena host, event brand Metropolis will be introducing some of the hottest talent from the underground bass scene.

Steve Aoki, Justice, Dada Life and more for Balaton Sound 2013

Steve Aoki, the impulsive musician from California of Japanese descent, is sensational and unstoppable. He is the founder of today’s most dynamic record label, Dim Mak Records, which has released more than 250 productions from the best bands and formations. His latest work, “It’s The End of the World As We Know It”, was released stylishly on December 21st, 2012. The master of electro house parties will be a co-headliner on the Main Stage getting the maximum out of the fans.

Steve Aoki

For years now the crowd of Balaton Sound pushes for Justice. The number one international stars of Ed Banger Records have music without genre boundaries: from catchy tunes and cool hits they can easily switch to something more brutal and offensive. Nowadays, no one knows better what French electronic music is cool for and for sure they also know how they can mobilize the crowd in Zamárdi…

Usually at the acts of Bloody Beetroots tens of thousands of fans go crazy while the boys rock the stage wearing masks in the state of full euphoria – after a long time, this year again, in front of the Hungarian audience!

First time in Balaton Sound history Dada Life will play for the satisfaction of many. The outlandish electro house duo from Scandinavia is known for their crazy live sets, lately becoming one of the most important festival headliners all around the world.

The lakeside event will also host Hardwell, a shamelessly young and talented Dutch titan, possessing a fan base of hundreds of thousands by being a progressive and electro house musician, producer and record label owner. He smashed into the music industry, amongst the best, at the age of 23 and now he is ranked within the top 10 on DJ Mag’s top 100 DJ list for 2012.

Amon Tobin is known for his original work by having a boundless and unique sound. His newest electronic vision is hooked to the world of hip-hop, but also connected to the dark side of grime and dubstep. This year those who need a real e-music indulgence should check out the “Amon Tobin presents Two Fingers” DJ set. The mainly instrumental set is a truly creative project by being super-massive, expressive and eclectic.

In addition to the line-up, one of the most promising French DJ and producer, Brodinski, is also confirmed for the 2013 Sound. His dynamic sets are primarily based on the bass-lines of house and moving techno themes staying wide open to minimal as well.

Prominent performer of the Berlin electronic scene, DJ and producer, founder of Innervisions Record label, Dixon, is also announced among the firsts in Zamárdi. He is well-known also outside Germany for his eclectic and floating deephouse mixed with funky house.

2013 kicks off to a great start with 8 exciting reasons to buy tickets to the event. However within days there might be a lot more to be excited for!  The organizers of Balaton Sound will step on the red carpet of the European Festival Awards in Groningen, The Netherlands, to join the best of the continent. It is in itself an outstanding recognition for the Sound to be considered in the Top 10 of its European category. Fingers crossed!


Day Lineup’s revealed for Global Gathering 2012

Providing guests with access to the ultimate clubber’s playground and a completely new audiovisual festival experience is the best VIP area GlobalGathering has ever seen. 2012 sees the introduction of a plane crash site theme, ensuring the sanctuary that is the VIP Fields and the party hub, the VIP Woods, perfectly compliment Long Marston Airfield’s aeronautical heritage.

Next to the VIP campsite and entered through a tunnel of windsocks, the VIP Fields are a place to relax, recharge, socialise and enjoy the delicious range of food and drink on offer throughout the weekend. With a Global Impact plane crash theme, the Fields will be dominated by the cockpit of a plane and feature chill-out areas including seating booths created out of graffiti covered cargo boxes, cargo net nests, specially adapted tyres and the Global Reclaim suitcase tunnel.

Tucked away between the VIP Fields and the main festival action are the more intimate VIP Woods. The Global Airways Hangar will dominate GlobalGathering’s very own enchanted forest, which truly comes alive at night. An incredible two story structure styled as a retro airplane hangar, the ground level will host a nightclub where VIP DJ’s and surprise guests will ensure it’s the hottest, most exclusive spot on site. Upstairs, the VIP Pilot’s Lounge will host a chillout area whilst outside, The Good Life zone will be filled with hammocks for revellers who prefer their R&R under fairy lit tries.

The VIP Woods will also invite guests to explore the secret pathways that take them to hidden gems including The Enchanted Garden, an oversized tropical oasis and the Mad Aviator’s Tea Party, featuring a long dining table doused in colourful lighting and seating area (magic teapots not included).

Korn, The Vaccines and more for Sziget 2012

It’s been 20 years since Korn rocketed on top of the metal world and the guys from California stayed there ever since. They already sold tens of millions of albums, won two Grammy awards and are generally considered as universal points of reference in the contemporary culture of rock/metal music. During their Sziget gig they plan to present the new LP, also considered as a dupstep-based metal craze, with the title ‘The Path of Totality’.

The Vaccines were reviewed by BBC as one of the biggest prospects of 2011 and the band lived up to expectations with their first album, ‘What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?’ The London-based indie rock guitar combo was already nominated for some of the biggest music awards of the continent and plan to start working on their new LP this March.

Magnetic ManDupstep heroes Artwork, Benga and Skream joined forces to create the legendary Magnetic Man formation and released their self-titled studio album in 2010, reaching instant success. 3 in 1 is always a good offer, so be prepared for another gigantic gig on Sziget.

Steve Aoki has Japanese roots, lives in California and by now he is regarded as a grand master of the electro house scene. ‘Wonderland’, his debut album was released this January, but he also made remixes for bands like Justice or Franz Ferdinand. The DJ and producer is the founder of the world famous Dim Mak Records.

For long years now it’s impossible to imagine DJ Magazine’s top DJ listings without finding Axwell’s name on them. He’s a member of the world famous Swedish House Mafia and counts as one of the most active contributors to the Scandinavian e-music scene.

Two Door Cinema ClubTwo Door Cinema Club is maybe the most lovable UK indie band these days. Easy going and guitar-centric, although not reluctant to some electronic sounds either. They’ve already played the biggest festivals and are currently working on their second studio album.

When it comes to combining fun and punk-rock, short but out-of-control kind of songs, you might wanna turn your heads towards Germany. Really! Beatsteaks has been existing for over 15 years, recorded 7 LPs and the ‘House of Fire’ track from their new album was even selected for the soundtrack of the third Transformers movie.

Antwerp-based immortal cult-rock act, dEUS is an all-time favorite for big festivals. One of the few bands who can perfectly evoke the anger and melancholy that is flooding from their studio recordings, also while playing live.

Synthesizers and machine-like guitar riffs, unbelievable pace and an industrial metal show that will simply blow your mind. That’s what you need to know about Ministry, announcing that after 3 years of silence they have recorded a new album and are ready to blitz the world once again.

Caro Emerald is the favorite singer and nr. 1. music export item of The Netherlands. The nu-jazz sensation has already won several big awards, combining groovin’ jazz with swing and tango, but doing so in a way that you will love her music even if you’re far from being a jazz fan.

Great voice, wonderful charisma and already a Grammy nomination to her name, these are the obvious words to describe Bebel Gilberto, also regarded as the ambassador of modern bossa nova. The Brazilian singer is mixing the Bahia region music with electronic patterns, while her latest LP, ‘All in One’ was nominated in ‘the best contemporary world music album’ category during the 2009 Grammys.
