Festival founders Groove Armada are curiously absent from this year’s line-up, but there’s few complaints with the headlining trio of Dizzee Rascal, Bryan Ferry’s art-rock icons Roxy Music and the eternally cool Grace Jones. From Chase & Status to Cut Copy, Ellie Goulding to Empire Of The Sun, the line-up as a whole cuts an effortlessly cool line across the best in bass music, indie, grime, dubstep, future garage, alt-pop, soul, funk, techno and deep house, with plenty bespoke barminess and extra-curricular eccentricities besides.
