After much teasing and anticipation, Junction 2 festival has finally released its full line-up for 2017. Taking place beneath London’s M4 motorway, theday-longg event at Boston Manor Park will have five stages each hosted by Drumcode, The Hydra, Sonus, Into the Woods and London Warehouse Events. With the likes of Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick and Tale of Us already on the bill expectations were certainly high, and now organisers have pulled out all the stops to bring ravers a banging line up that features some of the best techno producers in the game today.
The biggest announcements include Italian stallions Joseph Capriati and Sam Paginini, two artists that, for more than twenty years, have been serving up some deliciously driving techno that never fails to get ravers grooving. Also making an appearance will be of three of Germany’s most talented techno exports Rodhad, Recondite and Chris Liebing, all of whom have made a big start to 2017.
In a previous article we guessed that Maceo Plex and Ida Engberg would be joining Beyer and co going by last weeks’ teaser photo, and it appears our hunch was right. Expect nothing less than perfection from the talented American, whose Ellum label has been completely smashing it already this year. With Beyer’s wife Ida Engberg also confirmed, we’re hoping for an extended back to back set from the Swedish couple. Their previous appearances together have showcased some seriously good mixing skills, with a wicked chemistry that’s hard to find elsewhere. And with Drumcode making such a big start to the year already, it’s fair to say they’ll be putting out some of the hottest techno around. On top of the heavyweights, a great selection of the scene’s rising producers have been added. Belgian artist Charlotte de Witte will be playing, alongside British underground producer Willow, so watch out for those two talents. Junction 2 may still be a while away but the wait just makes it even better. If you haven’t already grab tickets here, and to get you in the mood catch the full line up below:
