No, not a Blur tribute festival but a huge two-day offering from a top notch Manchester production team offering a sterling mix of DJs and bands that leans more towards dancier endeavours – as shown by the presence of beat bigwigs like Disclosure, Rudimental and Fatboy Slim, plus electronica auteurs Caribou and James Blake. There's also majestic hip hop from two of the ’90s big hitters, Nas and Wu Tang Clan, and a smattering of electronic indie-pop from the likes of Metronomy and Everything Everything. It's located at the mammoth Heaton Park, several miles north of Manchester city centre.
