MAW, Dimitri From Paris, Evelyn “Champagne” King & Derrick Carter
51st State Festival is set to return to London’s Trent Park on 5th August with a line-up celebrating the intricate and uplifting roots of house music.
Bringing together the sounds of US house, garage, soul, disco and the Caribbean, this year’s line-up will be headed up by the undisputed kings of house, Masters At Work, who will be pushing the main stage to its limits as they lay down a dance music masterclass. Joining the ranks is the inimitable Dimitri from Paris, who will be bringing his distinct fusion house, disco and soul to ignite the main stage, while Backto95 host “Battle” and “Back up back up” hitmaker Wookie will be spinning a history of UKG. Elsewhere, new stage hosts Found will be bringing down the Chicago house with the legendary Derrick Carter.
The electric line-up continues on the We Love Soul stage, with the long-reigning queen of disco, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Grammy Award winning gospel icon BeBe Winans, Moon Harbour label boss and tech house titan Matthias Tanzmann, rare groove pioneer Norman Jay MBE, and falsetto pro Byron Stingily will also be bringing their own visionary sounds to this guaranteed sell-out.
This year will feature sharper sound systems, state of the art production and an improved VIP experience. Stage hosts include Backto95, Channel One Sound System, Found, Groove Odyssey and We Love Soul.
