A legendary venue, Milton Keynes Bowl provides the perfect setting for EDC UK, while the brightest stars in dance music 

will light up four breathtaking stages/arenas, each possessing their own unique vibe.  DJs will converge from the four 

corners of the world to celebrate the enduringly popular genre of techno at neonGARDEN, keeping it deep and dark 

from dawn to dusk. kineticFIELD presents an exciting mix of big arena electro-house artists, and circuitGROUNDS brings 

a seminal lineup of drum & bass pioneers who have progressively deconstructed the genre into the cutting-edge sounds 

and subgenres of today. At cosmicMEADOW, a stellar array of favorites has been assembled to transport Headliners 

straight to the stratosphere.

LINEUP SO FAR: Critically acclaimed Art Department is deep, dark and minimal. Los Angeles-based Carnage deftly fuses 

electro, hip-hop, pop and trap into an intoxicating brew that’s dirty, defiant, and diverse. Detroit-born Claude 

VonStroke, owner of Dirtybird Records and now living the life in Venice Beach, remixes everyone from Kenny Larkin to 

London Grammar. Cosmic Gate feed off one another’s turntable creativity to whip up a frenzied digital supernova. 

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have enjoyed a continuously upward trajectory from celebrated DJs to dominating figures in 

the electronic music industry. Dutch legend Ferry Corsten coaxes maximum emotional impact from his records, 

ensuring his place at the top of the electronic music Hall of Fame. Showing his masterful skills behind the decks, BBC 

Radio 1’s very own Friction will be mesmerizing Headliners on four decks with unreleased cuts. Dutch DJ and producer 

Hardwell won the DJ Mag Top 100 poll for the last two years. High Contrast will be joined by MC Wrec and Ilan 


Jamie Jones, leader of the new sound of house, is renowned for his pioneering music, his cross-genre band Hot Natured, 

his groundbreaking Hot Creations label, and his world-famous event series, Paradise. In less than a decade, he has 

catapulted himself to stardom by shattering genres and breaking out of the confines of minimal techno. Jamie’s 

revolutionary sound is an instrumental part of his success, being both artistically innovative, yet easily accessible. Also 

appearing will be John O’Callaghan, Jordan Suckley B2B Bryan Kearney, Kove and Linguistics—as well as Marco Carola, 

widely regarded as one of techno’s true pioneers. From his stellar Ibiza residency each summer to his shows across the 

world, Carola and his Music On parties and record label have become synonymous with cutting-edge music. Markus 

Schulz is a regular at EDC events around the world and known affectionately by his fans as “the Unicorn Slayer.” 

Matrix & Futurebound have defined a whole new era in drum & bass via their skillful fusion of epic, melodic 

soundscapes with heavyweight dancefloor production and original vocals. Rising star Miguel Campbell and BBC Radio 

1’s Mistajam will be in attendance. The debonair Paul van Dyk—German DJ, musician, producer, Grammy winner and 

torch-bearer for the scene—had the longest unbroken run at #1 in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll, was the first DJ ever to be 

voted as #1 in Mixmag, and boasts remix and production credits for the likes of U2, Depeche Mode and New Order.

This festival lineup wouldn’t be complete without drum & bass kingpins Pendulum (DJ set) with Verse. Raw and 

controversial, with momentous killer beats, they are not to be missed. One of the UK’s hottest new talents, Philip 

George, had the biggest breakout record of 2014 with “Wish You Were Mine.” PureNRG Live and Richy Ahmed will be 

performing live. Route 94 has quietly yet forcefully established himself as a distinctive young figure in the house music 

scene. For his latest album project, Cornerstone, Shy FX revisits old-school studio techniques and collaborates with a 

mouthwatering lineup of special guests. Drum & bass duo Sigma need little introduction; from early releases on labels 

such as Hospital and Viper Recordings, they have cemented themselves as an integral part of the scene. Steve Aoki head 

label Dim Mak, and Simon Patterson is a star of UK electro house. Sub Focus’ single releases span a plethora of 

electronic genres, from drum & bass and dubstep to house music and beyond. One of Holland’s most prized exports, DJ 

and producer Tiësto is a Grammy nominee and multiple winner of the celebrated DJ Mag poll. His legendary progressive 

electro house sound—along with his uncanny ability to read a crowd’s energy—makes him a perfect deck magician. 

Visionquest, wAFF and Will Aktinson round out the lineup, with more to be announced.
