Âme is no stranger to the rabbit hole of the Werribee Mansion. He’s been a favourite act at Let Them Eat Cake before and so we should expect nothing less of the great man when he returns. Germany’s Apparat will be appearing for one of the first festivals in the world since his recent break from electronica collective Moderat, and Bella Sarris will be travelling South of the Murray after playing with some of the industries best during her two year residency at Richie Hawtin’s Enter night.
Glasgow’s Jackmaster was voted #2 in Resident Advisor’s 2016 Top 100 DJ Poll and has shared the stage with acts including Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Ben UFO and Mike Servito. Also from Glasgow and taking to the stage at the mansion is Jasper James who has played at the world’s most respected clubs including fabric, The Warehouse Project, Smartbar, Lux, Bobbeaman and Sub Club.
Aussie favourite Jon Hopkins will be returning to the green grass again in 2018 and Melbourne cousins Kllo will be doing a Live set after their single Bolide has been frequenting on the airwaves in Australia and on BBC Radio 1.
After significantly contributing to Australia’s placement on the map of world electronica, Mall Grab will be bringing his infectious energy and talent to the day, and UK’s Nadia Rose will be stopping by from across the globe to bring her fierce and original sounds that have developed into something unlike any other from her early days when she was first introduced to hip hop.
Palms Trax, a German original but another Aussie favourite will be treating us to his delicious house sounds while Stephan Bodzin returns to our shores for his second Australian summer in a row. Seems like he can’t get enough of the heat, and neither can we.
We can’t wait.
