Sound On Festival, the Essex born wunderkind of EDM.  As much a curated compendium of the entire electronic music genre , there’s been some rumblings from the promoters regarding this little beauty this month. You see, originally Sound On Fest 2016 was going to take place the end of this month, however the folks over at SoundOn noticed an opportunity to optimise gains later in the festival season and expand upon their already impressive festival grounds, meaning you lucky so and so’s have got an opportunity to take advantage of better weather, a better line up and a better fest. Sound On is raising the bar again in Essex in August 13th and 14th; the first tier of tickets are on their way out, the revised line up is currently being announced and it’s time for your pals at Licklist to give you some pointers on what to expect now that Sound On has evolved into a brand new beast.

Beastly Beats

So as a result of all this tomfoolery, Sound On is busy haggling its new EDM sets. The headline acts are going to be announced imminently, but we’ve already had grime legend Chip sign onto the Sunday set to show why he is the man to watch. Fuse ODG, a fresh new maestro that’s racking up the UK top 10’s and collaborations with Major Lazer, is championing a mainstage performance himself with Krept & Konan coming to take London’s hip hop fans to school on a Sunday.  Saturday’s got music fiends Toyboy & Robin with David Zowie currently generating some serious buzz about his late mainstage performance. Truth be told though, there’s whispers in the wind of a monster Saturday night headline. Buy your tickets now while they are cheap, boys and girls.
