Jersey Live Announce Dance Arena Line up

Jersey live's headline acts for there dance stage will be legendary French electro producer/DJ, MR Oizo and Radio One DJ Zane Lowe.

With Jersey Live Festival exactly six months away, the line up for this year's event is almost complete, with numerous announcements due to be made over the coming weeks. Following the announcements of Main Stage acts Madness, Plan B and The Streets, the Jersey Live organisers are now ready to reveal the headliners of that other staple of the annual festival, the Dance Arena. 

On Saturday 3rd, the indoor dance stage will be headlined by New Zealander Lowe, who has been at the forefront of new music for the best part of a decade. With heavy beats, scratching and an eclectic mash-up of styles, his sets are known to be wild affairs, leaping from one genre to the other - as Mixmag described him, he has a “schizophrenic yet encyclopaedic musical perspective, he jumps from rock star to raver with a flick of the crossfader.”

Sunday 4th sees an legend of French dance music hit the stage: Mr Oizo, signed to iconic dance label Ed Banger Records, he will make his Jersey debut in what has been something of a coup for Jersey Live Festival, with no other UK festivals confimed as yet for this summer. Mr Oizo, real names, Quentin Dupieux, is best known for the 1999 chart-topping single ‘Flat Beat. His avant-garde approach has favoured hip hop and electro styles, with his more recent work moving in a heavier, faster, more club-orientated direction. He is seen as one of the most forward-thinking electronic producers in the world today, experimenting heavily with both analogue and digital production.

Jersey Live have also announced that this year's Main Stage compere will be none other than Radio One presenter, and spearhead for new music, Huw Stephens. Recently promoted to take over Jo Whiley's show, Stephens follows in a fine line of previous Jersey Live Main Stage comperes, including Zane Lowe, Edith Bowman, Craig Charles and Primal Scream's Mani.

Jersey Live is a unique music festival set in the idylic island of Jersey, which is situated in one of the most western parts of Europe - the Channel Islands, just off the coast of France.
