skreamThis year’s Bestival line-up keeps on getting better & better, with Skreamizm – unmistakably ecstatic vibes of funky little sweatboxes – added to the September event, as well as news of a special edition of Mixmag’s The Lab.

Taking it back to the source, Skreamizm is all about ace tunes on fat soundsystems, like it should be… Bringing the unmistakably ecstatic vibes of funky little sweatboxes where the real action is. Skreamizm will simply blow the audience away when it hits Bollywood at Bestival on the Friday of the 4-day event. 

Blazing his own trail, Skream, aka Oliver Jones’, recent ‘Rollercoaster’ joint smashed disco into the future, so it’s more than fitting that he will be adding his own inimitable style to our Desert Island Disco.

 Skream says:

“I’m extremely proud/excited/over the moon to be able to say ‘I’m hosting a tent at Bestival this year!’ I’ve been playing at Bestival for the last 4-5 years (I think), and to be able to say ‘I took Skreamizm there’, I’ll die a happy man!”

Completing the Skreamizm line-up at Bestival will be current UK Singles Chart No.1 hitmaker Route94, who has long enjoyed support from Skream and knows his way around a massive banger or two plus long-time Bestival party favourites Horse Meat Disco who will pump pure joy out of the soundsystem and into your bones.

Bestival will be having a special office rave-up this Friday bringing Skreamizm At Bestival to Mixmag’s Lab, a live stream of the world’s best DJs from the Mixmag DJ Lab via the internet. Getting the weekend under starter’s orders, the live stream which runs from 16:30-18:30 (GMT) will feature booty shaking sets from Skream,  Derrick Carter and Bestival chief Rob da Bank. Head to Mixmag at 16:30 on Friday to stream the party.
