Heading back out to Kyoto for this year's edition, Kansai's top dance music jamboree offers a nonstop two-day sound trip in lush campsite surroundings, not too far from Kyoto proper. This year's lineup is packed with big names from the techno, house and dub scenes: London funk phenom and Butterz bigshot Swindle will be bringing his next-generation take on grime to the party, British up-and-comer Nathan Fake is set to fire away progressive house and minimal techno, while Brazilian drum and bass majordomo DJ Marky should be serving up some of the weekend's sunniest beats. Joining them will be Korean Berliner Peggy Gou and a whole host of familiar faces from the Tokyo club circuit – look out for more announcements in the months to come.
