Announced recently and reading like a roll-call of just about every key player in the global electronic music of the past few decades, Brixton-based The Playground Festival 2013 is a logical destination for anyone with a penchant for programmed beats and a sweet-tooth for synth-driven music.
Taking place over the course of two days on 7th and 8th June, the weekender is expected to pull in thousands of keen fans of techno, house, ambient, synth-pop, dubstep, minimal, etc. The festival will be hosted undercover at Brixton's O2 Academy (we don't want those precious synths getting wet from the weather!) and will star some big names.
Friday 7th June will feature Digitalism as live headliners with James Lavelle (UNKLE), Booka Shade, James Zabiela, a rare slot from Juan Atkins' superb Model 500 project, newbies Boddika and Deadboy, plus DJ Hell, X-Press 2 and many more. Early-bird tickets cost £27.50 per day (rising to £35 once they've sold out), with weekend tickets costing £75.
Saturday 8th June is something even more special because electro-rock pioneer Gary Numan will headline with a full live band, with none-other than his big influence John Foxx and the Maths in support with the American techno legend Derrick May, house superstar Kevin Saunderson, ace minimalist Pantha du Prince, Kraftwerk's key-member Wolfgang Flür and the likes of Luke Vibert, OM Unit and Nathan Fake amongst the rest.
