One the bill were Public Enemy, Fat Freddys Drop, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Atmosphere, Carl Craig, Mr Scruff and Giles Peterson to name but a few.
The festival was a runaway success with a strong turnout and incredible feedback from the artists including DJ Vadim, who said itwas probably the best festival he has ever played at.
