High Definition has announced the first of its big names for 2012. The festival, which is only in its second year, will take place on 30 June 2012, and fabulous, very noisy Australian drum and bass sensations Pendulum are the first headliners to be announced.
Joining them on the bill is Mercury Prize winning artist Ms. Dynamite. The singer of “It Takes More” and “Dy-Na-Mi-Tee” will be turning up the heat with her unique urban sound.
Also on the stage are Sub Focus – who has worked with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, deadmau5, The Prodigy and Basement Jaxx, and MistaJam, who will be on hand to bring you the best in Drum and Bass, Dubstep, UK Funky, Grime and just about everything in between.
Fedde le Grand will take to the main stage for his co-headline set. Originally from Holland, Fedde is without a doubt one of the biggest names to have emerged from the Dutch House scene.
Grammy nominated Mark Knight also makes an appearance, and rounding things off is one of the most legendary DJ’s in Drum and Bass, Fabio, who’s weekly slot on BBC Radio 1 took Drum and Bass to a global audience.
High Definition Festival prides itself on taking absolutely no shortcuts when it comes to the quality of featured acts, sound systems and production values involved. This year will see an even keener focus on making it one of the slickest and most visually stunning parties of 2012, including a selection of the best food, entertainment and VIP areas.
Featuring five specialist stages, the event will showcase a wide variety of the finest talent across the spectrum of electronic music. Further artist announcements to follow.
Festival Director, Daniel May, said: “We were blown away by the response to last year’s event and can’t wait to get 2012 under way. We’ve got an obsessive passion for what we do. It’s about attention to detail: the artists, the sound, the visuals, the quality of the experience. This is by enthusiasts for enthusiasts with some of the best names in electronic music. This year is going to be special.”
