Huxley, Mala, Zed Bias, Clean Bandit and Friendly Fires’ Jack Savidge are the last names to be added to the now fit-to-burst line-up of the 2013 Bugged Out Weekender, which kicks off this Friday at Butlins Bognor Regis, UK.
The join some very big names indeed: house legend Frankie Knuckles and tetchy techno general Dave Clarke; the Chemical Brothers delivering a rare DJ set; shapeshifting dubstep pioneers Skream, Benga and Loefah; Andrew Weatherall and Ivan Smagghe playing a tag-team set; Disclosure, 2012’s biggest dance music breakout act, performing live; Ben UFO, celebrating the release of his Fabriclive CD with fellow travellers Joy Orbison, Julio Bashmore, Oneman, Jackmaster and Blawan; BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac; well-practiced rave destroyers Brodinski and Boys Noize and such rising house stars as Maya Jane Coles, Bicep and Dusky.
Elsewhere on the bill, ravers will be treated to sets from UK Funky standard-bearer Marcus Nasty and evergreen garage original DJ EZ; Detroit legend Theo Parrish, who also lends his name (sort of) to the Theo’s Parish stage, home to sets from a diverse range of DJs celebrating classic house music; plus Mosca, Scuba, Redlight; modern minimal/tech-house warriors Catz n Dogz and Maceo Plex; Bugged Out staples and veterans Erol Alkan, Justin Robertson, Matt Walsh and James Holroyd; the list goes on and on.
