Summer sonic gets a warm up of epic proportions, with superstar DJs and acts flown in who would top bills at other festivals.


Basement Jaxx and Simian Mobile Disco will DJ, and the Belgian boys from 2ManyDJs (on the left there) will be busy – Soulwax, their live band also take the stage.

As Summer Sonic kicks off a day later, you might want to take it easy on the beers, but for those who can’t make it for the weekend, this could be the ideal all-night party to make up for missing out.

If you have the stamina for the whole weekend, you are in for a treat, have a look at our Summer Sonic preview and take a look at some videos of the acts performing here.
