This year, the spotlight on sonic excellence shines bright with the presence of French techno icon and scene luminary Laurent Garnier, a pivotal figure who has significantly influenced the genre’s sound over three decades.

Accompanying them are the renowned hip-hop ensemble Souls of Mischief, reggae legend David Rodigan, and Afro beats trailblazer and worldwide sensation Sampa The Great—a unique blend of fractured beats and heartfelt vocals that have established her as a standout figure in the scene.

Moreover, Moovin regular and Hacienda Legend Graeme Park returns to mark 40 years in the scene. Congo Natty commemorates 30 years as a pioneer of the jungle revolution, while Erol Alkan presents an energetic fusion of indie dance music. Crazy P delves into various disco forms during their DJ set, and Prince Fatty & Horseman deliver their powerful dub sounds.

The lineup features a diverse array of live bands, from the captivating sounds of Nubiyan Twist to the infectious beats of K Klass and the mesmerizing performance artistry of Oh My God It’s the Church, known for their raucous fusion of gospel, soul, and rock. This lively group provides high-energy shows with passionate vocals, catchy rhythms, and theatrical flair.
