Following yesterday's massive announcement - headed up by p-funk icon George Clinton - we're delighted to have added the legendary likes of David Rodigan, Mr Scruff & MC Kwasi,Craig Charles and Crazy P Soundsystem to this year's bill.
Reggae selector David ‘Ram Jam’ Rodigan returns to take the reins at the o2 Academy on Friday with a bag of bass-heavy dancehall.
Meanwhile, on Saturday night at Foundry, the funk and soul maestro Craig Charles returns after road-blocking DQ Nightclub at Tramlines 2015!
Other standout performances this year includedance pioneers Crazy P, whose slinky underground disco and deep electronic cuts will appear as part of burgeoning local promoters Nice Like Rice's Queens Social Club takeover on Friday.
Beat-maker Quantic will touch down at Tramlines for a total of two killer performances, headlining the o2 Academy with a live set, before hot-footing it up the road to the Harley for a DJ set at the venue's Sunday night after-party.
The Banana Hill collective will be back to take over Queens Social Club on Saturday with a selection of dancefloor-bound world beats including 4hero's Dego and cutting-edge Lisbon DJ Rita Maia, amongst others.
Elsewhere, nine-piece hip-hop band The Mouse Outfit take to the stage at Yellow Arch, while LOR - the rising techno star who’s enjoying heavyweight support from Dixon and Ame - will warm up for Skream at Code. Both play on Saturday night.
Kicking off Tramlines as it means to go on with a melting pot of funk, disco, techno and more is seismic duo Mr Scruff & MC Kwasi, who return to the Leadmill for the festival’s official opening party on Thursday 21 July.
The new additions join the already huge dance lineup for this year's festival, which includes the likes of My Nu Leng with Dread MC, Novelist, Amy Becker, Denis Sulta, Coco, Boddika,LEVELZ, Mumdance B2B Pinch, P Money and more.
