Meanwhile, on the rave side of things, they’ve confirmed sets from Jamie XX, Bicep, Peggy Gou, Four Tet, Kaytranada, The Blessed Madonna, Annie Mac, Camelphat, Honey Dijon, Artwork, Jamie Jones, Jayda G, Skream, Jon Hopkins, Pendulum Trinity, Carl Cox, Andy C, Eric Prydz, Jax Jones, Adam Beyer (Presents Drumcode), Sub Focus, Wilkinson and quite a few more besides.

It goes without saying that tickets are going to get snapped up very, very quickly. The first batch of tickets goes on sale on March 24, at 10am, but it’s worth noting these are presale tickets for those who signed up over the past few weeks. General release tickets will be going up on March 25, at 10am via their website.
