By combining audio, light and visual projection mapping, THE PLAYGROUND experience engages freedom, engulfing all senses without limitations. The momentum plunges you into fearlessness, back from the leap for a free-fall experience from the high-rises of dependability. Headliners James Lavelle [UNKLE], THE ORB- LIVE, PANTHA DU PRINCE- LIVE will be joined by a the legendary WOLFGANG FLUR [ex Kraftwerk] along with LUKE VIBERT of Warp Records and up and coming experimental artists NATHAN FAKE @ KOKO on Saturday the 13th July.

One of the founding members of alternative electronic duo UNKLE, JAMES LAVELLE is a true staple of the UK’s music scene. Forming the group, alongside DJ Shadow, in 1996, UNKLE are regarded as one of the most groundbreaking electronic groups the world has ever seen with their debut album ‘Psyence Fiction’ regularly brought up as one of the greatest albums of all time.

We will also be graced with the presence of groundbreaking electronic duo THE ORB. Since the release of their incredible debut album ‘Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld’ more than twenty years ago, The Orb have been one of the most innovative and awe-inspiring electronic outfit in recent times. The pair are currently working on a second collaborative album with dub legend Lee Scratch Perry and rumours have begun to fly over a new tag-team with the electronic hero John Foxx. Needless to say, The Orb’s performance will definitely come with surprises.

We complete the top of Saturday’s line up billing with some of the most inspiring and influential artists in the world. Including German-born PANTHA DU PRINCE, a staple of Europe’s ambient techno scene whose new collaborative album with The Bell Laboratory ‘Elements Of Light’ is looking to be one of this year’s most anticipated new releases.

Also added to Saturday’s bill will be on of the founding members of electronic pioneers Kraftwerk, WOLFGANG FLUR. Flur left in the group in the mid 80s to pursue other projects that have seen the producer create a number of unique and diverse productions right up to the present day.

With further support from NATHAN FAKE, LUKE VIBERT, MOLO, DAKTYL and MAXX expect a night of the most cutting edge beats until the late hours of the morning.
