What to expect?
The fourth day will be all about joy. The programme reflects today’s powerful IDM revival, with Parisian Fasme – whose sound fits perfectly into this ideology – following in the footsteps of Ceephax Acid Crew; a little less crazy, but delivered with an unmistakable dose of acid. It all makes for two transcendent and immersive live audiovisual shows.
Mainline Magic Orchestra will bring their own sense of joy, not to mention a healthy dose of humour: the quartet from Barcelona skilfully tread the line between dark contemporary performance art and psychedelic jazz. Meanwhile, the third outdoor stage will host the drum’n’bass of Lyon’s Saku Sahara and the hip hop, jungle and dancehall of Yung Singh (whose sound is subtly influenced by Punjabi traditions).
The last day of the festival will be brought to a close by none other than BICEP, the legendary Belfast duo renowned for their mastery of breakbeat and deconstructed rhythms.
