Working in collaboration with four of the UK’s most respected bass music institutions & enlisting a selection of established and up and coming artists, the festival will see over 50 acts pass through providing a selection of the finest dubplates and dancefloor classics bass music has to offer.

Making their Bristol debut are drum and bass power group Problem Central, comprising of Logan D, Magistrate, Eksman & Evil B.
Revered D&B imprint Critical Music host the second stage with an exceptionally curated line up of long-standing contributors & special guests.
