Last year's opening run of events saw the likes of Paul Kalkbrenner, Seth Troxler, Maya Janes Coles, Luciano, The Martinez Brothers, Daphni, Booka Shade and Motor City Drum Ensemble playing the cavernous former printing factory.

Marco Carola's party Music On has locked in another London date this month at Electric Brixton.
Having already rocked Electric Brixton earlier this month and just last week, the techno don returns to the capital once again for the the final date this Friday (April 21st) where Carola will be joined by Neverdogs.
Speaking about playing London for the third time in a month, Carola said: "London has always been the kingdom of music. Playing here is always a challenge for me."
12 people have been burned by a “noxious substance” while attending London nightclub Mangle E8 in the early hours of this morning (Monday 17th April).
The nightclub was evacuated and London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance services were called to the scene, when patrons came into contact with an acidic substance inside the venue.
Studio 338 has announced it will reopen in June with an all-new garden setting on the club’s original Greenwich site.
The much-loved London club suffered extensive damage in August 2016 thanks to a fire that saw 70 firefighters from London Fire Brigade attend the venue on Tunnel Avenue, and resulted in the tragic death of a Studio 338 staff member as he tried to dampen flames on the club's roof.
Marco Carola has announced he'll be bringing his famed Music On party to London's Electric Brixton for three dates this April.
The techno don will return to London on Friday 7th April, then the following Friday (April 14th) and then again on April 21st.
Line-ups have still to be fully unveiled but you can expect the likes of Paco Osuna, Marco Faraone, Neverdogs and more to be announced in the coming weeks.
