Eclair Fifi and Big Miz will get the party started in as they go back to back, while Avalon Emerson aims to pack the dancefloor with her diverse selections around the release of her debut album.
SHERELLE will bring her blend of footwork, jungle, and D&B for her debut appearance; with Brooklyn duo AceMoma, fresh from their ‘much talked about Dekmantel set’, and Palms Trax also set to play alongside Bonzai Bonner, Hayley Zalassi, Beth and Optimistic Soul.
Sunday 4 June is already shaping up well with Spanish vinyl-only DJ Hector Oaks and Paula Temple both confirmed in the first line-up announcement, alongside co-curators of the festival Slam.
