Accompanying him from the UK include hip-hop/grime pioneer Wiley and up and coming recording artists Labrinth and Charli XCX. Plus you can’t go past the legendary producer and DJ Jacques Lu Cont. Legendary French duo, Justice will play their acclaimed DJ set, while in Sweden the electro pop Queen, Robyn prepares her return to Australia after a three year absence.
For fans of bass music from Dubstep to Drum & Bass to Grime, Parklife this year is the ultimate one stop shop: DJ Fresh will be bringing a full LIVE band to the stage in the wake of his massive #1 hit ‘Hot Right Now’ (the first ever DnB track to reach #1 on the UK charts) and NERO are bringing their LIVE show to celebrate debut album ‘Welcome Reality’ reaching platinum in Australia.
