Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) returns to the UK for a two-day party at Milton Keynes Bowl on Saturday 12 July and Sunday 13 July. Having already announced the first acts on its line-up, the event is adding even more names to join the weekend's festivities. First up is Hardwell, returning to the Kinetic Field stage after a great reception at EDC’s UK event last summer. D&B and rock fusionists Pendulum bring a heavyweight electric DJ set to Cosmic Meadow hosted by HARD, with hype man Verse on MC duties. UK duo Sigma beef up proceedings with a tendency towards jungle-infused sets.
He topped the charts with ‘My Love’ in March, and now DJ/producer Route 94 takes on Cosmic Meadow with his stripped-back deep house and laid-back party style. Kerri Chandler brings a DJ style that seamlessly blends deep through soulful and new house, disco with new wave and floor-friendly techno, UK bass and vocal garage, plus a performance from Deorro who joins Laidback Luke in the Circuit Grounds on July 13.
Germany’s NickCurly, Cadenza’s AndreaOliva, Dutch electro DJ duo Firebeatz and Outcross records head MiguelCampbell are also on board. Electro-house production duo Bassjackers appear at KineticField and multi-talented BBC Radio 1 DJ/producer DannyHoward joins CircuitGrounds.
EDC UK also welcomes some of the trance scene’s major players to Circuit Grounds, with Grammy Award-nominated Andy Moor and Lange going back to back, young talent and BBC Radio 1 In New DJs We Trust name Jordan Suckley up against Irish DJ/producer Bryan Kearney, and Above & Beyond’s Jaytech squares up against Anjunadeep’s Ilan Bluestone for a back to back set.
Adding another two arenas, with TidyArena and GoodgreefXtraHard, EDCUK makes a commitment to all things hard. On 12 July the TidyArena features TidyBoys, BK featuring Cortina with a rare live trance set, AndyWhitby and AlexKidd. Hardcore DJ CallyCage appears with KymAyers, presenting their Tidy Girls Like It HARD set. RobTissera is on board, as are Maddox and Townend for their Untidy set.
