Australian Drum and Bass sensations Pendulum are the first headliners to be announced and will be thrilling the crowds with a typically eclectic, twisted and energetic DJ set.
 
Joining them on the bill is Mercury Prize winning artist Ms. Dynamite. The singer of top 10 UK hits “It Takes More” and “Dy-Na-Mi-Tee” will be turning up the heat with her unique urban sound.
 
Sub Focus has worked with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, deadmau5, The Prodigy and Basement Jaxx. Registering a #1 in the UK Dance Charts with his breakthrough hit “X-Ray” he ranks amongst the top acts in Drum & Bass and Dubstep.
 
Without a doubt one of the most important Urban DJ’s on BBC Radio, MistaJam will be escaping the broadcast studio to bring you the best in Drum and Bass, Dubstep, UK Funky, Grime and just about everything in between.
 
Rounding things off is one of the most legendary DJ’s in Drum and Bass. Fabio is renowned for pioneering the genre during its formative years. A weekly slot on BBC Radio 1 saw him take Drum and Bass to a global audience.
 
High Definition Festival prides itself on taking absolutely no shortcuts when it comes to the quality of featured acts, sound systems and production values involved. This year will see an even keener focus on making it one of the slickest and most visually stunning parties of 2012, including a selection of the best food, entertainment and VIP areas.
 
Featuring five specialist stages, the event will showcase a wide variety of the finest talent across the spectrum of electronic music. Further artist announcements to follow.
 
Festival Director, Daniel May, said: “We were blown away by the response to last year's event and can't wait to get 2012 under way. We've got an obsessive passion for what we do. It's about attention to detail: the artists, the sound, the visuals, the quality of the experience. This is by enthusiasts for enthusiasts with some of the best names in electronic music. This year is going to be special.”
