1.30pm
Start off your day by taking a trip back to the mid-’90s. UK garage stalwarts DJ Luck and MC Neat bring their upbeat 2-step anthems to the Wavey Garms stage, and with a little bit of luck their killer choons will help you make it through the night. I mean day.

1.45pm
Ease yourself into the festival vibe proper with one of London’s finest reggae and dub crews, Channel One Sound System, on the Main Stage. They’ve got decades of experiences under their collective belts and are wisened masters at blasting out rootsy frequencies.

2.30pm
Crank up the pace and the bass with bashment crew The Heatwave. Indulge in some colourful carnival-style raving and find your dirty dancehall groove as you shake whatever you’ve got.

3pm
Stop whatever you’re doing or drinking and head straight over to the Just Jam stage for genre-mangling genius Scratcha DVA. He's one of the most innovative producers on the Hyperdub label thanks to his propensity for fusing anything from techno to juke to dubstep.

4pm
You probably haven't jumped around enough yet. Change this and start pogoing the hell about courtesy of D&B legends Jumping Jack Frost and Bryan Gee playing back-to-back and rinsing out some serious choons at Wavey Garms.

5.30pm
Garage and breaks master Zed Bias may have hung up his headphones and quit DJing, but he still plays the occasional live set with his new soundsystem project. At Born & Bred he'll be reinterpreting his hefty ‘Boss’ album on the Swamp 81 stage with the band. Ooft.

6pm
Forget ‘EastEnders’, forget his orchestra conducting – head to the Main Stage and hear visionary producer Goldie do what he does best: play a killer DJ set bursting with inspired drum ’n’ bass.

7pm
More main-stage mayhem courtesy of D&B DJ royalty Zinc playing a pure jungle set. Expect all of Haggerston Park to lose their shit at this one.

8pm
Check your Rolex – it’s time for a Main Stage headline set from grime kingpin Wiley. He famously doesn’t do ‘rainy festivals in the West Country’, but the bassy, inner-city vibes of Born & Bred should be the perfect platform for his on-point observations and sublime grime cuts.
