STILETTOS feat. ATFC
Not to be mistaken for a Sunday football team, ATFC is a one-man house music legend. It's not just big tunes and big stages he dabbles in however. He's also got his dirty mitts on some of the biggest names in the industry. Ever heard of P Diddy, Missy Elliot, Bootsy Collins, Simply Red, Faithless or Dido? Well ATFC's taken each one of them, flipped them upside down, shaken them all about and smothered them in his lovely housey drool.

KITSUNÉ CLUB NIGHT with GILDAS
As one of the two head honchos behind the Kitsuné label, Gildas Loaec is the Frenchman whose stellar work began within the humble walls of a Parisian record store he started. Since then, he’s gone on to set up his own label, ushering in the sounds of acts such as Digitalism, Simian Mobile Disco, Boys Noize and Delphic via Kitsuné and establishing himself as one of the pre-eminent taste-makers of our sonicscape –a quality that he will well embody from behind the decks.

FORWARD feat. IRON CURTIS
Iron Curtisʼ pieces originate in a place simultaneously tuned to the sounds of Detroit, Chicago and Hamburg. In his hometown of Nurnberg, Johannes Paluka is more familiarly known under his surname, which he goes by at the decks. Intertwining Deep-House with soulful Techno in a disturbingly enchanting manner, his sound moves in the equilibrium of reduced, but never minimal

THE 1975 “LIVE”
The British indie four-piece are one of the most idolized bands around after their debut self-titled album debuted at No.1 in the UK charts leading to sold-out tours. Their amorphous drifts between brooding art rock, crisp electronica, dancefloor R&B, and 80s gloss pop have earned them support slots with the likes of Muse, The Rolling Stones and Two Door Cinema Club. Now they are deservingly headlining their own.
