Allister Whitehead appearing at this event

One of the most talented DJs you're ever likely to come across. Given that he has been at the top of the premier league for the last 10 years, his lasting appeal is undeniable. The superstar DJ has held residencies at Manchester's Legendary 'Hacienda', Nottingham's 'Venus' alongside Sasha and 'Cream' in Livepool. He has worked with the likes of Martha Walsh, Natalie Imbruglia and Robbie Williams. A master of the art behind the decks and definitely one not to be missed.

Bentley Rhythm Ace

West Midlands duo Mike Stokes and Richard March (former Pop Will Eat Itself) with a manic beat assault overladen with sampled kitsch. Their sound evolved in 1996 with the Ep 'Bentleys Gonna Sort You Out' - then followed a monthly residency at 'The Heavenly Social'. Their live performance is 'serious with a smirk' - they've dressed as Vikings in Iceland, Scousers in shell suits at MOS, ravers with vicks in Camden. These boys are wicked fun and very entertaining.
