The celebrated French multi disciplinary arts and music festival is set to return this coming May with a prolific line up which showcases some of the most original, forward thinking innovators in dance and electronic music as part of what is looking like an eclectic programme. Names revealed come following the announcement of curators in the form of Jeff Mills, Dj Harvey, Honey Dijon and Helena Hauff who have all played a role in curating a day of music each as part of the festival which will run between the 19th and 24th of May later this year. 

Names announced include leading figures in contemporary dance music such as Fatima Yamaha, Nina Kraviz, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Amelie Lens, Dax J & Kobosil. Elsewhere electronic innovators also make up a prominent element of the programme with the likes of Squarepusher, Neon Chambers, 808 State, Kittin & The Hacker all locked in. 

The latest wave of the line up also features a significant number of lesser known but significant artists making waves including the likes of Gabber Modus Operandi, Neuzeitliche Bodenbeläge, Giant Swan, Jessy Lanza and Minimal Violence. 

The festival will also feature exciting back to back appearances from KiNK and Bawrut, Ivan Smagghe and Manfredas and Daniel Avery and Roman Flugel.
