  • Following their sold out NYE party in the city, the music and performance art project will host Vitalic and Tiefschwarz over the Easter Weekend.

  • Vitalic has been selected to headline the second of Bristol's The Greatest Show On Earth events, which again takes place at Motion Skate Park. The party is a collaboration between Bugged Out! and Bristol-based promoters Just Jack and Team Love, and their inaugural bash on New Year's Eve demonstrated just how much effort they've put in to the concept. Although there might be a few less special guests than their NYE extravaganza, the Easter shindig on Thursday April 1st will again see a night-long performance from the Arcadia crew, who have already garnered quite a reputation for show-stopping pyrotechnics and circus skills during last year's summer festivals, most notably at their Glastonbury arena. Main headliners Vitalic and Fake Blood are sure to cater to Bristol's clubbing contingent that remain hungry for their fix of electro-house, while Tiefschwarz will demonstrate their mature tech-house sound alongside jozif, the latter of which has already built up a small fanbase in the city with his numerous shows at the intimate Dojo Lounge. Hybrid and Tayo are also there to satisfy both the progressive and urban breaks fans on the night, with reggae (DJ Derek), forward-thinking UK funky (Julio Bashmore, Tomb Crew), Italo-tinged beats (Retro/Grade), jungle (Randall), tech-house (Wolf + Lamb's Bill Patrick) and chirpy electro-house (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs) all being packed in to the diverse line-up.
