Two international DJs have been announced to headline the stage. Lush & Simon and Mischa Adams shall be bringing their own partciular brands of electronic music to the shores of South Africa. They shall be joined by a stellar local line-up with Paul Bingham, and Mark Stent being the first names announced.
However, this news pales in comparison with the latest addition to the line-up; Roger Goode. He has been rated as one of South Africa’s most eccentric radio DJs, and currently hosts 5FM’s drive time radio show. Not only does he hold this prestige, but he is also signed to Pete Tong’s London Records and is world-renowned for his ability to create brilliant EDM trcks.
