Bassline Festival will be taking to the grounds of Powderham Castle near Exeter from Friday the 9th to Sunday the 11th of September, with a huge bill of electronic music having been curated for the weekend. With stages hosted by Bassline as well as Hospital Records, RAM records, VIVa Warriors and Garage Nation, this promises to provide any dance music fan with something they love to dance to.
On Saturday, the main stage will welcome some of todays biggest and most sought after artists including Tinie Tempah, Katy B, Sigma and Krept & Konan, with lots more to be announced. The RAM Stage will be coming to Bassline Festival on Saturday with special guest Friction as well as Noisia, Calyx & Tybee, Culture Shock, Rene Levice and Frankee. Of course there will also be some super talented MCs on hand to hype up the show. Steve Lawler’s VIVa Warriors will also be coming to town with a very special line up that is still TBA, however the final stage for Saturday is already set, with Garage Nation hosting a So Solid Showcase featuring Romeo, Lisa Mafia and special guests. Also appearing here will be DJ Luck & MC Neat, Foundation, DJ Cartier and MC Bushkin.
Sunday will see a similar set up return to the castle as Rudimental, Andy C, Sub Focus, Netsky and Wilkinson perform on the main stage whilst Hospital Records host one of their insatiable Hospitality parties on stage 2. Here, Camo & Krooked play with a very special guest in DJ Marky, not to mention Etherwood, Metrik Logistics, Lynx, Krakota, Huge Hardie and a bunch of MCs. There will also be a house and techno stage returning on Sunday that is yet to be revealed. Finally, Bassline hosts their own stage on Sunday with Zinc, Charlie Sloth, Yungen and Shift K3y set to perform here amongst others.
There will be camping available, open from Friday, and tickets are available here, with first release tickets having already sold out.
