The thought of being able to dance in an amusement park to some of the best electronic music in the world was an exciting enough prospect when Bugged Out! in Dreamland was first announced a few months ago. Before any artists were announced there was already a buzz in the air and that was only shot further into orbit with the arrival of the first phase of DJs.
To our delight the likes of The Martinez Brothers, Groove Armada, Joy Orbison and Richy Ahmed were the first names to be added, followed shortly by Skream, making this one day bash a very appealing trip for fans of house and techno.
Bugged Out! will be bringing much more to the table however on Saturday 24th September, as now we have been met with the next additions to this unique party in one of the most iconic theme parks in Britain. There is now a big lick of garage, bass and grime on the agenda, with wonder boy Novelist heading it up alongside Radio 1’s and garage favourite Zed Bias. Into the announcement even further we have Wookie, not to mention new school hotness in Solardo, who strengthen the house and techno bill even more.
With this huge music programme and some of the greatest funfair rides in the country, including the oldest ever rollercoaster, Bugged Out in Dreamland promises to be a complete game changer in the festival world.
