The IglooVision Arena which first debuted at Glastonbury features a panoramic graphic environment which will be specially adapted in real time to suit the mood and music of the performance.  Festival goers will be treated to a 360 degree video wall that comes alive, changing from underwater to flaming hot club scenes – this is as close to becoming ‘Tron’ as you’ll ever get and an audio visual feast not to be missed.  

On Sunday IglooVision becomes the Residents Arena which will see performances from some of the UK’s best loved Resident DJ’s including H2, Tim Owen, Adam Helliwell, Anton Powers, Thomas Tuft, Steve Parry, Sean Hughes, Lee Rands, Andy Woods and more.

Back by demand is Jägermeister who return with two of their specially concerted ex-military beats, the first of their beasts is the Jäger Rock Truck, which converts into an outdoor stage and will be showcasing performances from the likes of LMP DJ’s, Ellesse, Mark Mac, Paul Nunn & James Glover, Dash, Sam Rice, Zutekh, Denny Dowd, Autophase and more, whilst the second truck The Jägertruck will be the base for festival goers to enjoy an Ice Cold Jäger shot whilst watching and foot tapping to the beat.

For some laidback cool and to rest your weary feet, waltz over to the Pimm’s Bus which returns in all its ‘garden party’ glory complete with bunting, white picket fence and deckchair action.
