The line-up has been revealed for the DSTRKT 5 district - where alluring robots, gender bending cabarets, gas masks and cyborgs are soundtracked by the best in drum & bass, jungle and breaks - at Boomtown Fair 2018 Chapter 10 which takes place at Matterley Estate, nr. Winchester, in Hampshire from Thursday 9th until Sunday 12th August 2018.
Taking over the formidable Robotika, Teklife Showcase come from Chicago with sets from; DJ Taye, Taso and DJ Paypal. The Jungle Warriors will be shredding up the stage with sets from; Shy FX mentor Potential BadBoy, Kenny Ken - legend of warehouse parties and early leaders of Ragga music Remarc and The Ragga Twins. Brooklyn,'s DJ Lenny Dee leads the line up at the Scrapyard, playing a world exclusive set alongside techno wax innovator The DJ Producer. Combining European FreeTek with Bristol soundsystem culture, the fresh sounds of Vandal are matched with heavy vibes from Billx. Dutch duo The Outside Agency supply cutting edge hardcore techno whilst soundscapes tie together Maztek’s neurofunk inspired drum & bass and the UK’s No.1 hardcore label Deathchant Records Showcase Ft. Axe Gabba Murda Mob presents devious turntable tricks from crafty combo Bryan Fury & FishHell.
In DSTRKT 5's hidden venues, eEyes can’t be trusted down at the Red Rash Inn where gender norms are flipped on their heads and every self identifying specimen is welcomed into the open arms of the fine establishment after a series of tantalizing, thought provoking cabarets. Balancing precariously on the tightrope of outwardly outrageous, Happy Slap Boutique matches circus with pyro in a stage show to leave the audience bewildered and beguiled. Racy robots, oxygen masks, breakcore and bassline are just some of the excellent eccentricities that lie in the depths of Downtown - it has to be seen to be believed…
