The UK has a heritage of diverse dance music and there’s so much talent on offer, one of the guys flying the flag across world is Sub Focus. His music is a beautiful blend of drum and bass and anthem-ic sounds. Watch out for this one.

The man behind the Harlem Shake rose to instant fame after his track broke the internet with devastating effect. But his rise to fame cannot be solely credited to the track, as he continues to produce some of the most ethnic trap and bass sounds, and is also renowned for putting up quite a show.


4. Sasha – December 29, Space Station Stage

Another fine British export, Sasha is a musician in every sense of the word. His music is very uplifting, the house stage is the place to be when he’s on the decks.


5. MAKJ – December 29, Dance Temple Stage

2014 has been a splendid year for Mackenzie Johnson who initially wanted to be a race car driver. Hailed as one of the best ‘DJ’s’ in the industry, prepare yourselves for some smooth transitions and avoid getting too hooked to a single track during his set.


6. Emma Hewitt – December 28, Cubezoid

Trance vocalist Emma Hewitt has lent her voice to some of the genre’s most memorable tracks over the years and she’s a master at engaging audiences when she performs live. All of you present at last year’s EVC might remember her captivating performance alongside Cosmic Gate.


7. Klingande – December 27, Dance Temple

Frenchmen Klingande are renowned for placing his very own, unique stamp to house music. They beautifully pit together authentic saxophone sounds with a sort of tropical house variant. Mellow down in the beautiful Vagator sands with their sounds.


8. Avalon – December 29, Space Jungle Stage

One of the biggest names in the international psy-trance circuit, he will be leading the line-up at the special psychedelic stage at Sunburn this year. His uplifting psy-trance perfectly suits the Goa vibe and this stage is a blessing for the locals who are used to the genre in the coastal state.


9. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – December 29, Dance Temple
