This year's headliners include a trio of New York's finest: Masters at Work - their only London festival performance of 2020 - Roger Sanchez and Body and Soul, plus a soon-to-be-announced special guest.
The New York natives will be joined by Detroit legend and techno pioneer Derrick May alongside house music royalty Todd Terry, House N' HD (Terry Hunter and Mike Dunn), Eli Escobar and the French ambassador of the genre, Dimitri from Paris.
Representing other cradles of dance music, we've lined up sets from dancehall pioneer Charly Black, Soul II Soul's Jazzie B, UKG legends Todd Edwards, Wookie, Matt Jam Lamont, Majestic, Heartless Crew and Dreem Teem, and live PAs from the likes of The Brand New Heavies, The Cool Notes' Lorraine McIntosh, and soul stars Jocelyn Brown and Barbara Tucker.
Having sold out in 2019, this year's festival is set to be bigger and better than ever, so come join us as we celebrate London's only transatlantic house party.
