FLY Open Air Festival has added more names to its 2023 line-up, with he event retiring to the historic Hopetoun House, just outside Edinburgh, on 20th and 21st May. 

Berlin's high-energy pair DJ HEARTSTRING top the list in the second wave announcement, with Irish emergent Fionn Curran and Radio 1 Future Dance star Sarah Story also in the mix. Meanwhile, Blackpool, Lancashire technoist Azyr will play alongside Glasgow's rave purveyor AISHA. 

These join artists previously unveiled, including Ben Hemsley, Chaos In The CBD, Eliza Rose, Interplanetary Criminal, Job Jobse, Prosper,  t e s t p r e s s, and more.

Elsewhere, the bill has a refreshingly high number of local talents confirmed, with Cooked, Gav & Jazz, Mily B, All U Need Open Decks Crew, Andromeda Sounds, Kamilla, Jezza & Joe, RMN.BTS, Amplify, Mi Casa and Polka Dot Disco Club. A stack of back-to backs are also on the cards, including FRANCK and Bad Boombox, VXYX with Neoma, Off Record and Progressive, GAU7T and Oakley Carter, and Sammy Aberdein with LAÜZ. 

More names are set to be confirmed in the coming weeks, with tickets on sale from Tuesday 31st January.  

Now in its 10th year, FLY Open Air started life in the centre of Scotland's capital, at Princess Street Gardens, before relocating to its current location — a Grade-I listed building which took 53 years to build, with construction finally finishing in 1752. The festival sets music in the English garden-style landscaped park outside the stately home, with Boiler Room down to host one of the sound systems.
