There’s only two days to go until the surfing-meets-music event of the year – Boardmasters 2017!
We’ll be there once again with our stage, The Point, presenting a varied collection of artists who will be bringing the best that the electronic scene has to offer.
Over the course of three days we have 22 acts gracing the stage, all of which are guaranteed to get you moving. We’ve put together a list of acts which you absolutely cannot miss, check them out below.
Luke is part of the Relentless family so he’s definitely not one to miss. He’ll be opening the stage for us every evening so you’ll have not one, but three opportunities to see him.
Since winning the Relentless ‘Here To Be Heard’ competition back in 2014, the Birmingham born artist has been consistently taking over dance floors and dropping singles. He appeared at Manchester’s Warehouse Project last New Year’s Eve and recently dropped his latest single “Back It Up” through Criminal Hype.
Also taking to our Friday night stage are House producing and DJ duo, CamelPhat.
Since forming in 2008, the Liverpool born duo have made a name for themselves on the electronic scene. Their latest single, a collaborative joint with Elderbrook entitled “Cola” was crowned BBC Radio 1's Hottest Record In The World.
Next up, gracing the stage immediately after CamelPhat is Sonny Fodera, another friend of Relentless.
The Defected Records artist is a man of many talents. Starting off producing hip hop as a teenager in Australia, Fodera grew adept at working decks. Fast forward a decade and the DJ’s sound has transformed from hip hop to dance and electronic and has received praise from the founders of the scene including the ‘Godfather of House’ Frankie Knuckles.
Headlining our stage on the Friday evening will be none other than Patrick Topping, representing UK talent to the fullest extent.
Born and raised in Newcastle, Patrick Topping has an eclectic back catalogue including releases on Relief Records, Hottrax and Jamie Jones’ label Hot Creations. You may even recognise him as the cover star of the latest issue of Mixmag.
Saturday’s talent is just as jam packed as Fridays. One act you can’t miss is Theo Kottis.
The British DJ is one of the most exciting talents to emerge from the UK over the past couple of years, with big names such as Simian Mobile Disco and Pete Tong as self-proclaimed followers. We’re big fans of Kottis here at Relentless and having him grace our stage is definitely not something you’ll want to miss.
Solardo are long term friends of Relentless and we’re excited to join forces with them once again on our second evening at Boardmasters.
Since dropping their breakthrough single “New Jam” back in in 2015, the UK based producer/ DJ duo – MRK1 and James Elliot – have risen to the top of the electronic music game. They also have a co-sign from Boiler Room and Data Transmission, so you know they’re set is going to absolutely go off.
Also hitting up The Point stage on Saturday evening will be T.Williams.
Diehard fans may remember his past in the grime scene going by the name Dread D, but for the recent years T.Williams has been shelling it down in a different world. After falling in love with house and all its sub genres, the London based artist has spread his wings and brings a unique sound to the stage. Definitely not one to be missed.
Taking to the stage after Luke Hassan’s final performance of the weekend is Carly Foxx.
The Australian DJ is now based in London and brings her eclectic music taste to her sets – providing a truly unique and diverse show ever time. Taking aspects of house, acid house and more retro 90s sounds, Foxx’s turn at The Point will certainly be a great way to kick off the final day at Boardmasters.
We’re super excited for Hollywood movie star and all round UK legend, Idris Elba, to join the stage on our last night at Boardmasters.
Known for his love of music in all forms (he presented the Channel 4 docu-series How Hip Hop Changed the World in 2011), Elba has been performing as a house music DJ for over a decade under a number of monikers and we can’t wait to welcome him to The Point on Sunday evening.
Hot Since 82
Our closing act for the weekend is Hot Since 82.
Beginning his life in nightclubs at the tender age of 14, Hot Since 82 began his DJ career at age 17 and has since become one of the UK’s biggest house exports. Since taking on the name Hot Since 82 back in 2012, the Yorkshire born DJ and producer has had a swift rise to success including featuring on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 Show in 2013.
