Stars of our Dance Stage line up are GMS, the multi award winning psy-trance pioneers, who since the late nineties have gained themselves a huge following both here in the UK and abroad for their groundbreaking style and ability to morph with the times. This year they’ll be bringing a whole new sound to Sunrise!
Morten Granau is the Danish progressive trance DJ that is taking Europe by storm and it’s just about to hit these shores! Sunrise is delighted to host his debut UK appearance at this year’s festival.
It isn’t just trance that will keep everyone dancing into the night, with two of the current biggest artists in the breaks scene heading up the bill- Krafty Kuts, whose multi-genre sets, dexterity on the decks and dedication to dance floor hedonism have earned him status in every genre of electronic music and Deekline, the bass music icon who balances the cutting edge and the mainstream with effortless flair.
Far Too Loud’s high-energy aggressive funk, has been smashing it not only in the UK but globally, turning the dance floor upside down with their big electro beats.
1200 Mics are one of the biggest and most successful collaborations on the psy-trance scene. Made up from Riktam and Bansi from GMS, Raja Ram from Shpongle and trance artist, Chicago. Sunrise is delighted to welcome Riktam and Bansi for an old school 1200 mics DJ set that will raise the roof on the dance tent, Saturday night. Another old school favourite, System 7 and one of the greats of the dance world will also be performing on the dance stage and doing a Mirror System DJ set on the chill out stage.
Sunrise has seen some of the best and brightest trance DJ’s over the years and none more so than UK, home grown favourites, Avalon and Sonic Species, two of the biggest UK psy-trance acts. They will be performing individual sets and then in their debut UK appearance will be teaming up to create Future Frequencies in a very special, exclusive Sunrise set- not to be missed!
Another very special collaboration taking place on the Dance Stage this year will be when Deekline and Ed Solo come together for a back-to-back set as Jungle Cakes. This drum and bass, jungle beats spectacular is a rare beast that Sunrise is delighted to host as one of acts that will make this ‘One Hell of a Party!”
