Mark Ronson, Zane Lowe and more for W.A.R!
Last summer W.A.R! introduced an incredible mix of the most influential and exciting names in electronic music to the famous outdoor Rocks stage. This year, W.A.R! will once again bring together an eclectic mix of electronic acts to showcase a diverse range of Bass and House at the Rocks Hotels for 16 weeks throughout summer.
The electric, early evening, outdoor shows will welcome back the formidable musical force that is internationally renowned producer Mark Ronson and the UK’s biggest tastemaker Zane Lowe. The master DJ duo inspired W.A.R! and were crucial in making it a ‘must’ for electronic music lovers last year. They will headline the W.A.R! closing party in Ibiza which also includes Bondax – a duo that will blow up in a big way in the Balaerics this summer. These Lancaster lads incorporate elements of post-dubstep, RandB, and garage, to craft an intimate, electronic bliss. With tunes like “Baby I Got That” and “Just Us” this will be one super hot set.
Fans don’t need to wait for the closing party for the fun to begin - there’s plenty to come before then with special shows from Rudimental (DJ set), Redlight and Jacques Greene in Ibiza. Rocks Resident DJ supreme Doorly will be back on the White Isle too, not only captaining the brand new W.A.R! Ship pre-party, but also playing an exclusive residency at W.A.R! every Friday from the 7th June to the 20th September.
With a strong focus on supporting big headline acts as well as the best up and coming talent, W.A.R! introduced Disclosure and Rudimental into the mix last year and will once again showcase fresh new talents in the form of Mak and Pasteman, Gorgon City feat. Yasmin, Delta Heavy, Scruffizer, Toyboy & Robin, Mele, Roska and Wilkinson. Like Doorly, Mak and Pasteman started as Rocks residents and success has since soared for the Leeds bass duo, with a new Radio 1Xtra show, club and festival shows across the land and three stand out sets at W.A.R! this summer.
The newly announced acts join an already incredible line up that includes an exclusive W.A.R! residency with Example + DJ Wire plus four Rinse FM events with TNGHT, Katy B, So Solid Crew, Skepta, Oneman, P Money and Zinc.
