Solfest announce a host of dance acts for the 2012 event

Timo Maas, Riva Starr, Elite Force, Eat Static, System 7 and more

Solfest 2012 brings an assortment of the best, most happening and legendary DJ’s, remixers and meisters of the double decks as they confirm the dance acts for 2012.

Top of the pile is the king of progressive house, producer and remixer Timo Maas. Solfest has exclusively secured Timo for the only UK date of his current world tour. He’ll also be performing a very special two hour set.

Riva Starr the very much in demand Italian producer has also been confirmed for Solfest. With an impressive catalogue of releases and remixes on key dance labels such as Made 2 Play, Get Physical, Dirtybird, Kindisch and Southern Fried; Riva’s diverse, but always distinctive sound has helped him notch up a fan-base no matter how diverse his productions and remixes, there is always an inimitable thread that is unique to Riva.
Simon Shackleton’s Elite Force project began way back in 1996, debuting on his own newly founded Fused and Bruised label with a series of peerless 12” and remixes. As a remixer, Elite Force has always been in huge demand.

Eat Static was formed in 1989 by Merv Pepler and Joie Hinton as a creative outlet for the diverse range of electronic music that the pair were writing. Always intended as a live band, Eat Static can legitimately claim to be one of the UK's first live techno outfits.

System 7’s latest album UP Tips the balance a bit in a more techno and tech house direction, still showcasing the unique System 7 sound with ultra modern production and a feeling of positivity.

DJ Templehead (Dom) is founder and resident DJ of the seminal 90's Leeds Trance/Techno club 'Templehead' and will be playing Techno, Electro, squelchy, bendy, noises, classics and more.

London-based producer and live performer Run Riot is one of the UK's fastest-growing dance acts. Slamboree is a 10-piece live band with a Smörgåsbord of performers, daredevils and entertainers, every gig is very different to the last. Bass-driven beats, live orchestra, guitars, percussion, loops, visuals, brass, accordion, pyrotechnics and circus.

Also confirmed are Ginny Koppenhol, Key Lo & Sick Note, Mr Psik & G-Cut, Sam P.

Others appearing include: Adam Ant & The Good The Mad And The Lovely Posse, The Waterboys, KT Tunstall, Big Country, The South, Billy Bragg, Seth Lakeman, The Bootleg Beatles, Transglobal Underground, Roddy Woomble, Eat Static, Timo Maas, Eliteforce, Aberfeldy, Larkin Poe, The Duke Spirit, Saint Jude, Nina Nesbitt, Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo, Baghdaddies, System 7, Pikey Beatz, Mirrorsystem, Belleruche, The Talks, Yes Sir Boss, Random Hand, The Singing Kettle and many many more.

Solfest has endeavoured to compile a richly varied line-up that includes both the contemporary and the classic of the music world and runs that gamut from rock to roots and folk to dance. Seven stages will be running an incredible gamut of musical styles - you'll be spoilt for choice, in the best possible way.

Solfest takes place on August bank holiday, 24-26 August in North Cumbria.
