UKF & EXIT invite more incredible talent to their X-Bass Main Stage takeover!
As if RUDIMENTAL LIVE, DUB FX and KOVEN LIVE weren’t quite enough to tempt you over to Novi Sad, Serbia between July 10-13… EXIT and UKF have recruited more next level artists to lead the sunrise procession: ADVENTURE CLUB, ANDY C, DIMENSION, FRED V & GRAFIX feat DYNAMITE MC, GORGON CITY, JAGUAR SKILLS, MY NU LENG, PRETTY LIGHTS, SUB FOCUS and TC!
Representing the overwhelmingly rude state of health electronic music is enjoying right now, the line-up UKF and EXIT have curated explores every inch of today’s coolest soundtrack… From chart-smashers to underground bashers, each corner of the dance is delivered with clarity and consistency. Between 1am and sunrise every night from Thursday July 10 to Sunday July 13 the Petrovardian fortress walls will rumble and shake with the very best contemporary sonic dynamics.
Let’s get acquainted…
Thursday July 10 is a DJ connoisseur’s dream… Hotly hyped D&B sensation DIMENSION will ignite proceedings and set the scene for JAGUAR SKILLS. One of the most razor-sharp DJs in the game, and a common face on BBC Radio1, the masked musical mystery guarantees a genre-melting free-for-all that will defy conventional turntable rules. And to ensure EXIT’s opening night goes down in festival legend, they’ll be joined by none other than ANDY C. A bona fide drum & bass pioneer, with over 35 Best DJ awards to his name, the Ram Records founder knows exactly how to smash the EXIT main stage arena and guarantees to set a whole new benchmark.
Friday July 11 is equally show-stopping. Joining the previously announced RUDIMENTAL and KOVEN LIVE are two of the most exciting acts to have emerged from the UK west country in recent years… Black Butter’s, sub-low tech maestros MY NU LENG and Hospital Records’ FRED V & GRAFIX. Between them they cover every bass base from dark garage to vibrant drum & bass. For added focus and fire, Fred V & Grafix have invited a very close friend of EXIT festival… None other than DYNAMITE MC. If anyone knows how to thrill EXIT’s international party massive, it’s the ultimately charismatic entertainer.
Saturday July 12 sees the arrival of GORGON CITY. Leading the charge in the UK’s latest chapter in house music, their lush blend of pop soul and driving grooves have already dented the UK Top 10. Joining the UK duo with a perfect blend of bass and house flavours will be SHADOW CHILD.
For a fittingly fiery finale, UKF & EXIT promise to pull out all stops for Sunday July 13 as we invite the mighty SUB FOCUS, TC, ADVENTURE CLUB and PRETTY LIGHTS! Last spotted destroying the fortress in 2012, Sub Focus continues to develop on his impeccable profile with more genre-exploding fusions. Joining him will be TC. One of the most respected names in bass music right now, his meticulous musical muscle can be found on Skrillex’s OWSLA and his own critically acclaimed We Don’t Play imprint. And TC isn’t the only incredible EXIT debut signed and sealed for the Sunday…
ADVENTURE CLUB will also be popping their EXIT cherry this year. Enjoying a justifiably rapid rise to fame, the Canadian super-duo are one of the hottest names in electronic music this year. Demonstrating their power on some of the biggest labels in electronic music such as Spinnin and Dim Mak, their creative genres-be-damned fusions and raw physical performances make them the perfect act to soundtrack the final hours of what’s set to be the most on-point, most exciting, most explosive line-up UKF and EXIT festival have ever curated. See you there… From 1am to sunrise each and every night!
Also appearing at Novi Sad for the first time is GRAMMY nominated PRETTY LIGHTS, brandishing a next level live show. Expect to be melted by his visuals and physically seduced by his characteristic hip-hop influenced beats.
