Much as we hate to admit it, festival season draws to a close in September, meaning you should grab every opportunity to get outside and dance like summer never ends. So say hello to Ceremony (taking place on Saturday September 13), a new daytime festival that’ll floor those end-of-summer blues.

Presented by the team behind forward-thinking electronic showcase Found, Ceremony positions an incredible cast of scene-leading DJ legends alongside newer, underground talents. The resulting roster brings together old and new beat obsessives, representing decades of dance music excellence.

  • Inner City

    What do you get when you pair Detroit techno don Kevin Saunderson (pictured) with Chicago vocalist Paris Grey? Some of the biggest dance-pop crossover hits of the last 25 years – think ‘Good Life’ and ‘Big Fun’. Instant, anthemic nostalgia.

  • Route 94

    If you had to pick someone to sum up the sound of the UK’s clubbing landscape at the moment, you could do a lot worse than deep house producer Route 94. Expect the audience to go wild when he hits the Ceremony arena, particularly if he drops hit single ‘My Love’.

  • Lil Louis

    Ever wondered why Chicago is hailed as the be-all and end-all of house music? Check the driving, insistent groove of ‘French Kiss’ by born-and-bred Chicagoan Lil Louis and you’ll understand why.

  • Richy Ahmed

    There are plenty of old-school house heroes on the bill at Ceremony, but Richy Ahmed – a favourite of the influential Hot Creations label – will be repping the new school of techy, hypnotic beats in super-slick style.

  • Louie Vega

    Whether through his Masters at Work project with Kenny Dope, his own Latin-tinged beats, or simply spinning club-igniting tunes, ‘Little’ Louie Vega is house music royalty. His Ceremony set will be fit for any king or queen.

  • Kidnap Kid

    Candice-Joelle

    One of the hottest talents from tastemaking label Black Butter Records, this producer’s mix of electronic R&B and silvery pop melodies will be the perfect kiss goodbye to summer.

  • Todd Terry

    Spiros Politis

    One of the few who could vye with the late Frankie Knuckles’s for the title of ‘Godfather of House’. TT is mixing it up at Ceremony, playing house jams at the 51st State arena and a pure hip hop set at the So Fresh So Clean arena.

  • Tropical

    Who? Oh, only a collaboration between some of the finest grime producers and MCs in the UK: Skepta (pictured), JME, Preditah, Plastician and Logan Sama. A fearsome prospect, ready to add some audio grit to the Ceremony line-up.
