Joining the already announced headline acts, Avicii and Axwell ^ Ingrosso, are more than 30 of the biggest names in house, trance, dance and drum ‘n’ bass.
For starters, Eric Prydz will be performing on the kineticFIELD Stage, showcasing his highly anticipated debut album Opus. He’ll be joined by Oliver Heldens, the pop-house driven Dutchman behind chart topper “Gecko (Overdrive)” and Robin Schulz, whose latest album, Sugar, has established him as one of the most successful German club acts to date. Electro house producer behind Madonna’s “MDNA,” Martin Solveig and 19-year-old electronic music prodigy, Martin Garrix will also join the kineticFIELD Stage.
Heading to EDC’s circuitGROUNDS stage hosted by Bassrush, Dutch electronic music trio Noisia join the line up, alongside the ground-breaking partnership that ultimately transformed a generation of bass and dubstep, Caspa and Rusko. Joining them there will be Pendulum and drum ‘n’ bass duo Sigma, among many others.
Heading up the bill on the cosmicMEADOW Stage hosted by Insomniac’s premier trance brand, Dreamstate, is seminal trance DJ Paul Van Dyk, whose electrifying big room sets have been a staple in the trance world for over 20 years. Gouryella will also be performing, meaning that Ferry Corsten will bring his high-energy classic 90’s trance to festival goers.
Elsewhere, the neonGARDEN Stage will play host to influential UK Garage artist, DJ EZ, who has pioneered an underground movement in the scene for over two decades. Duke Dumont will also bring the deep, house-heavy vibes and an electrifying DJ set, and he’ll be joined by genre blending LA based-producer Jauz as well as widely acclaimed dynamic duo, Galantis.
In 2015, over 40,000 revelers flocked to the Milton Keynes Bowl to interact with Insomniac’s innovative art installations, exhilarating carnival rides, and beautiful costumed performers, all while listening to the incredible soundtrack of dozens of massive global artists.
