Swampyboy
Kyotosapian (pulled out due to sickness)
Failotron (HUN)

UK vs New York in a clash of some of the modern scene's brightest stars, including Nullsleep and Starscream, both part of iconic weblabel 8bitpeoples. Representing home turf is Henry Homesweet, Kittenrock/Antigen records dance superstar, who has moved from his sugary-sweet dance music to more filthy bass-laden bangin' choons. Swampyboy comes from the capital with a no-doubt mental chipbreak set, and Newcastle fave Kyotosapian opens with a feet-moving set sure to fire up the Scouse crowd!

Be there and be square(waved)!
