Marco Corola. Mark Knight's Toolroom Knights and 40 more acts announced for High Definition festival

High Definition returns better than ever for its fourth year with an incredible line-up in a new stunning location: Eridge Park, in Tunbridge Wells. Having sold out all 15,000 tickets in advance last year, 2014’s attendees can expect a huge line up of electronic music’s finest acts.

On the main stage, previously announced headliner and prevailing house legend Carl Cox will now be joined by international techno connoisseur Marco Carola.

One of the most widely respected DJs in the game, Marco Carola has been mixing techno for over twenty years, and currently stands at the forefront of the global techno scene. Originally from Napoli in southern Italy, Carola has travelled the world as a producer, DJ and label owner, releasing five critically-acclaimed albums in the process. Renowned for his legendary 2006 Fabric mix, which made a significant contribution to the mid-00s minimal trend, his extensive touring schedule has seen him play countless gigs in Ibiza, New York and all over South America. Carola’s high energy sets can often be up to eight hours long, taking audiences on a journey and demonstrating his impressive three deck skills! High Definition is thrilled to have such a globally respected star to joining proceedings.

High Definition Festival is also proud to introduce the ‘Toolroom Knights Stage’ featuring label founder and Grammy nominee Mark Knight. Over the last seven years, Knight has never left DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll and has notched up performances at some of the world’s most iconic music venues. Joining Mark Knight are the increasingly prolific house duo Prok and Fitch, who having already racked up some impressive achievements on and off dance floors the world over are set to impress Eridge Park with their heavy-duty sound. Also stamping their mark on High Definition will be newcomer Weiss and Amsterdam’s Mike Mago, who has already won support from a wide variety of powerhouse producers including Tensnake and Josh Wink.  But that’s not all- the Toolroom Knights line up is completed by a plethora of fast-rising acts including: Bearcubs, George Andrews, Pete Griffiths, Mark Dickson and Mike Mac plus a B2B set from Luke Jacquin, James Stewart and GW Harrison!

The team behind High Definition have also recently announced their VIP Arena, which is set to play host to some of Ibiza’s finest regulars. Showcasing their progressive dance floor smashers in the VIP arena are the Hoxton Whores alongside the adroit sounds of DJs Deeptrak and Soul Avengerz, not to mention 2 Good Souls, Mike Linnane, Terence Kay, Sam C and Banton. As if that weren’t enough there’s more in the form of the Tech Twins, Mark Hollis & Jamie Watts, Ben Jammin & Harry Ashby, Chris V, Charlie A, Cliff Knowles and Chris Passion.

These recent additions will join (amongst others) The Martinez Brothers, who are gearing up for an amazing six-hour set of latin-infused house and techno, as well as Gorgon City, currently riding high with ‘Ready for Your Love’ and ‘Real’, and Joy Orbison, who will be bringing his sublime bass hybrids to High Definition alongside house and techno greats Dusky, Filsonik, George Fitzgerald and Jon Rundell.

Flying the flag for bass music are Mistajam, recent chart-topper Route 94, dubstep don Artwork b2b with Zinc, Ms Dynamite, the eclectic as-ever Oneman, and Radio 1’s B.Traits plus drum & bass royalty Shy FX. 

On the 5th of July, High Definition is set to once again showcase the globe’s very best artists for a day and night of superlative electronic sounds.
