Massive dance line up for Boomtown confirmed

Ben UFO, Mr Scruff, Monki, Dave Clarke and Booka Shade

Boomtown’s carnival inspired district, Barrio Loco presents a cornucopia of global culture  with a musical soundtrack perfectly complementing the vibrancy  of its interweaving streets! Taking the best in alternative bass, no part of underground culture is left behind; from house to techno, funky to bashment, trance to soca, everything is celebrated in this landscape of colour. As well as being home to some of the most influential artists in the UK’s party scene, Bassline Circus will be filling this district with a multi dimensional theatrical experience to provide all who through with a fully immersive experience. 

The main stage for Barrio Loco,  Vamos, celebrates global dance culture spearheaded by house/techno innovators, Ben UFO, Mr Scruff & Joy Orbison collaborating on an epic five and a half hour back to back session,  Legendary Detroit techno DJ Carl Craig will be blending jazz and soul selections Classics are on the cards with respected techno producer Dave Clarke and Booka Shade will be driving footwork from front to back with their infectiously melodic minimal house music. House Gospel Choir’s unique take on old school classics performed by a full gospel choir takes funky house, garage and bass sounds to new heights in what promises to be an unmissable set. Taking some of the best in underground electronica to the masses, BBC Radio 1/1Xtra DJ Monki will be shelling out bangers, Dusky’s classical inspired techno takes production to a mesmerizing level and duo Solardo’s explosive sets guarantee energy. 


Round the corner in this district's other main stage, Poco Loco, showcases the incredible versatility of live hip hop with a kaleidoscope of unique artists; headlined by newcomer Loyle Carner, whose ‘sensitive and eloquent’ hip hop invites intimacy in the largest of crowds, A J Tracey’s seamlessly intricate flow is delivered over rock inspired trap music and Jurassic 5 legend Chali 2na playing alongside renowned turntablist Krafty Kuts for a packed set of classic hip hop. Straddling grime and bashment Donae’o’s vocals over back-bending beats supplies carnival vibes, and fresh from grime collective The Square, Elf Kid’s rhymes are relentless. Amy Becker’s fierce production has unequivocally secured her on the map of those to watch and Eva Lazarus, a name almost synonymous with Boomtown, presents her highly anticipated EP alongside The Afronaughts; expect big hair, big harmonies and big vibes. Chris Munky spins everything from trip hop to soul with MC Inja leaving no genre unturned.

Never far from the party, relentless energy from the Bassline Circus crew will be delighting passers by with mind boggling stunts fitting of an urban playground. Raised eyes will find breathtaking parkour, streetdance and breakdancing showcasing the diverse range of cultural influences on offer throughout the district.

This is the penultimate of Boomtown’s line up announcements before the big finale - Bang Hai Tower to be released next Wednesday...
