More acts have been confirmed for the 2014 Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) line-up set for Milton Keynes in July.
The world-famous dance music festival returns to the UK for an epic two-day party which will see organisers transform Milton Keynes Bowl beyond all recognition on Saturday, July 12 and Sunday, July 13.
Having already announced a star-studded line-up, including Avicii, Calvin Harris, Fatboy Slim and Steve Angello, Electric Daisy Carnival UK promoters have added even more names to join the weekend’s festivities.
The latest line-up additions include very special guest Hardwell, the world’s number one DJ, chart-toppers Sigma, Route 94, Kerri Chandler, who will also appear at Eastern Electrics 2014 at Hatfield House, and there’s a DJ set from Pendulum.
Deorro, Nick Curly, Ibiza favourite Andrea Oliva, Firebeatz, Miguel Campbell, Radio 1 DJ/producer Danny Howard and Bassjackers have also been added to the EDC bill.
EDC will also feature two new arenas hosted by Tidy and Goodgreef Xtra Hard.
See below for full stage splits and stage line-ups for both days.
Back by popular demand, Hardwell will take to the Kinetic Field stage after an incredible reception at EDC’s inaugural UK event in London last summer.
Voted the world’s number one DJ in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJs in late 2013, this inimitable Dutch electro house purveyor will have the crowd jumping to his tune, as one of the most dominant forces in electronic dance music.
Drum’n’bass and rock fusionists Pendulum bring a heavyweight electric DJ set to Cosmic Meadow hosted by HARD, with hype man Verse on MC duties.
A critically acclaimed stadium-worthy live and DJ act, Pendulum DJ sets successfully blur the lines between drum’n’bass, breakbeat, jungle and bass and guitar-led live electronica and rock genres.
Staying on a drum’n’bass tip, UK duo Sigma beef up proceedings with a tendency towards jungle-infused sets.
A highly sought-after production outfit, Sigma have worked with DJ Fresh, Rusko, Stylo G, Ellie Goulding, and Eric Prydz, and recently scored a huge number one with Nobody to Love.
He topped the charts with infectious banger My Love in March, and now hot young DJ/producer Route 94 takes on Cosmic Meadow with his stripped-back deep house and laid-back party style.
A leading proponent of the new house sound, Route 94 maintains a distinctly UK edge, his tunes laced with complex grooving basslines.
US house master and innovator Kerri Chandler brings a DJ style that seamlessly blends deep through soulful and new house, disco with new wave and floor-friendly techno.
There will also be a very special performance from Deorro, who joins Laidback Luke in the Circuit Grounds on July 13.
An Ibiza favourite whose star continues to rise across the European festival circuit and beyond, Nick Curly is a tech house tour de force.
Dutch electro DJ duo Firebeatz have the remixer’s Midas touch, while in-demand Hot Creations face and Outcross records head Miguel Campbell offers a masterclass in deep house.
A-list electro-house production duo Bassjackers appear at Kinetic Field and multi-talented BBC Radio 1 DJ/producer Danny Howard – whose show boasts 1.8million listeners – joins Circuit Grounds.
Adding another two arenas, with Tidy Arena and Goodgreef Xtra Hard, EDC UK makes a commitment to all things hard.
On July 12, the Tidy Arena features hard dance pioneers Tidy Boys, BK featuring Cortina with a rare live trance set, hard house faces Andy Whitby and Alex Kidd.
Rising hardcore DJ Cally Cage appears with trance and hardcore selector Kym Ayers. Rob Tissera is on board, as are progressive head Maddox and hard house banger Townend. Max Mozart & Audox and Trap Two round up the Tidy Arena line-up.
And on Sunday, July 13, Goodgreef Xtra Hard arrives, the international trance and hard dance institution bringing together hard-styler Technoboy and Q Dance radio’s Kutski.
Scot Project plays a classics set, catch hard stalwarts Organ Donors and Mark E.G, Cally & Juice play their last ever UK festival set, Technikal plays a hard trance classics set, see Argy, and Phil Mackintosh b2b Shaun T, hosted throughout by MC Shocker.
The new wave of heavyweight artists join an already stellar line-up with Avicii taking to the decks of Kinetic Field, while house music hero Steve Angello and US electro house star Steve Aoki, plus Nicky Romero, chart-storming Martin Garrix and bombastic brothers Showtek appear.
The focal point of the festival, the Kinetic Field stage will be bigger than ever, with out-of-this-world production.
Calvin Harris takes to the Kinetic Field on July 13, with Fatboy Slim, the unstoppable Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, dancefloor-destroying duo NERVO, Dutch DJ of the moment R3hab and Carnage.
