First timer here, this is my current plan but I have no idea if it's realistic with the distances between stages / queues etc so any opinions on that would be much appreciated!

Thursday: Marshall Jefferson > Sasha > Jennifer Cardini > Camelphat

Friday: Hopkins > Midland/Chem Bros > Overmono > Honey Dijon

Saturday: Macca > Folamour > Avalon Emerson > Solomun

Sunday: PSB > Prospa > Job Jobse > TBAs

It's definitely a new stage, AFAIK.

The named stages in Shangri-La have changed, so it's conceivably a refashioned version of a previous one, but there's never been a 'Platform 23' before.

I'm super excited, as one of my must-sees, Client_03 - 0300-0400h Friday is on there, so can't wait to see it.

Ah nice, I only just realised they've moved earlier (was initially told 5am) - should be able to make that now 🙌

There's a more up to date version of this somewhere, with different times for different weather conditions etc, but this is a handy rough guide:

I'd day the Chem Bros into Overmono may be tricky. 

Not impossible, but tricky.

In terms of distance, you can get from Arcadia to Iicon in 30 mins, it's just majorly dependent upon conditions/footfall/traffic. 

I also want to do both, but will more than likely see Little Simz on WH, so tbh makes more sense for me to go straight into the SEC post headliner and get a good spot.

Does anyone have experience with Gas Tower? It looks like a pretty small venue to me with possibly only one entry point?

I'm planning on seeing Goldie x Medic MC there on Friday night at 20:00, would like to be at the front so will get there early if it's recommended. Cheers.

 

If anything it’ll be a bit too quiet

Yep that was the one I'm probably most worried about, my initial plan before I heard it was Chem Bros was Primal Scream > Midland > Overmono so I might have to revert back to that. My group will take some convincing though

Chems on The Spider will be amazing, so either way you'll have a top night. 

You could always see Overmono the night after. Or chance your arm and leg it straight from Chems and hope there's no queues.

I'm going to keep saying this.... you won't have major queues heading into the SEC, even after the headliners or The Chems. It may be a little busy and slow in places, especially the entry point, but it will be moving. IICON is huge and can swallow a large crowd and last time helped reduce congestion a lot.

Also, there is now shit-tonnes on after hours in various locations not just the SEC. It's not like the good old days where everyone all headed the same way.

Having just said the above ...

Thursday is busy everywhere, especially earlier in the evening, so it is sometimes best to stick around one area.

Friday will be ok except Honey D which will have loooonng queues anytime after headline time.

Saturday is possible but think about your dancing feet. It's a long way from Macca to Fol. then back to A.E. then back to Sol.

Sunday should be fine.

Whatever, you'll have a blast.

This was certainly my experience in 2019, no queues to get into the SEC.

The SEC felt much quieter in 2019 than previously - I think a lot of people tapped out because of the heat, IIcon for sure has a huge field but every time I went it was "dead" (nowhere near capacity" and even Shangri La felt quite quiet at times - could be because the Common was slammed but compared to 2017.

On the other hand the only time I really remember it being a long queue to get in in 2017 was on Thursday which makes sense with other stages closed

Expecting IICON to be busier this year with a bigger lineup on.. Midland, Overmono, Floorplan, Joy Orbison, Floating Points etc

Pulling more people away from other venues. Good news!

I'd hope so but all the artists are clashing tremendously - Midland/Overmono likely with Chems on Arcadia, Floorplan on at headliner time, Joy Orbison with Jamie Jones & Floating Points with Jon Hopkins/Daniel Avery on San Remo & Four Tet/Calvin Harris on Arcadia. I know they try to split the crowd but they reckon it has capacity of 15k and with the number of those clashes I think it will still be nowhere near full (at least should be able to get in!).

Incidentally, the fact that JJ, Solomon and Dixon was initially on the lineup makes me think they MUST have made the Gas Tower bigger - all three I'd typically expect top-billed on events - hell JJ and Solomon headline 2 of the biggest club nights in Ibiza and JJ had the primetime spot B2B with Carl Cox at Pangea in 2019 whereas Gas Tower is pretty tiny

I know it's just me being a little bit of a mischievous bugger, but I just cannot get my head around someone who is super hyped for Jopkins into Avery (e.g. me) having any  thought that there might be a clash with Calvin Harris!!!

Daniel Avery plays clubs and Jopkins play festivals and have DJ sets and live shows around the UK on a pretty regular basis - I mean both of them are on the lineup twice this year, plaed 3 times in 2019 and played 2017 as well.

Harris on the other hand, how often do you get a chance to see that - and on the spider no less. In any case both of those will be WAY more packed than Floating Points at IIcon!!

Probably been mentioned already but there is also 'Big Fish Little Fish' or 'Junior Jungle' every day after Power Ballad Yoga at Greenpeace 11:00. Doubt I will make it most days but will be a good way to start things off on Thursday with my niece

Really hoping to make these two in the early hours of Sunday morning and wondering if anyone knows what the ‘VJ fade in fade out’ and ‘AV volta XR’ is all about? That something to do with the projections that get done on the screens in the gas tower?

Hi Guy

Well, 'best' is always a subjective matter of opinion, or course. But my picks would be/include:

- Sedef Adasi (new Berghain resident)

- Sama' Abdulhadi (amazing Palestinian DJ)

- Jon Hopkins (despite his own material being unquestionably IDM, his techno DJ sets are brilliant)

- Daniel Avery

- Joy Orbison - I include him as, tho he can play different genres of stuff, I've seen him play a blistering techno set and that's what I imagine he'll bring to IICON. 

- Pangaea x Pariah: Hessle x Karenn. Say no more.

- Batu

- HAAi (tho I can see her playing no 'proper' techno sets this time, as she loves to mix things up. 

- LSDXOXO

- Partok

- IMOGEN

- Steffi

- FJAAK

I'd be more than happy to stepping up to a set by any of these. Sadly, clashes means I can't see most of them!! 

Ben
