TWO further arenas have been added to this year's GlobalGathering festival, and Afrojack has been added to the Main Stage, the organisers have announced.
The annual rave culture and electronic music festival on Long Marston Airfield, near Stratford-upon-Avon, is taking place on 26th and 27th July this year.
Two-time Grammy award winning DJ and producer, Afrojack, will be performing on the main stage alongside headline artists Plan B, Example, and Disclosure.
Nick van de Wall, commonly known by his stage name Afrojack, said: "It’s great to be performing again at GlobalGathering. The hardcore electronic music fans come from all over the world to be there, so it’s very cool to be a part of it.”
The festival has also announced there will be two more stages, Born Electric and the Toolroom 10 arena.
New artists booked for the festival include James Zabiela, Dada Life, Mark Knight, Eats Everything, Dusky, George Fitzgerald, MK (Mark Kinchen), Doorly, Mihalis Safras, Rene Amesz, Prok & Fitch, Filthy Rich, Spectrasoul, Pedestrian, and Matt Smallwood.
Born Electric, the label owned and arena headlined by true titan of the scene James Zabiela, will offer up an amalgam of experimental electro, harmonious house and the infectious techno synonymous with their releases.
Other acts appearing across the weekend include house producer Eats Everything who will be bringing both the old school and the eccentric.
Tech-house duo Dusky will bring a futuristic feel and distinctly UK undergound edge.
GlobalGathering strives to promote and support the rising stars of the electronic dance music scene and Born Electric confirms this as it will play host to George Fitzgerald, Spectrasoul and Pedestrian.
James Zabiela said: "I'm incredibly excited to not only be playing at Global this year but to play a part in curating an arena for my new label Born Electric. The stage set up we have is super cool and quite different, so I'm interested to see what people will think of it."
The Toolroom 10 Arena, a stage devoted to Toolroom Records’ and Mark Knight's distinctive sound, is back and even bigger in 2013 to celebrate its 10th year at GlobalGathering.
The arena, which is focussed on bringing the underground sound of the label to the overground, will be headed up by tech-house veteran Mark Knight.
Also playing on the Toolroom Arena is genre-busting producer and remixer MK (Mark Kinchen) along with Doorly, who will be tapping into a collage of house, bass dubstep, jungle, hip hop, techno, funky and more. Mihalis Safras, Rene Amesz, Prok and Fitch and Filthy Rich complete the bill.
