As festival season begins to take shape, Junction 2 locks in the full, extensive lineup for its two-day debut on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th June 2019 at Boston Manor Park. With the likes of previously announced Bicep, Craig Richards, Richie Hawtin and Daphni across the weekend, the festival continues its exploration of dance music’s furthest corners with an unparalleled array of superb selectors and exciting debutants.
NEWLY ANNOUNCED ACTS:
DIXON * HUNEE * RICARDO VILLALOBOS
BATU * CARISTA * DJ STINGRAY * FORT ROMEAU
GILLES PETERSON * MUMDANCE * OBJEKT * S_AS * VOLVOX
AMELIE LENS * LOCO DICE * TALE OF US

A Junction 2 mainstay, Dixon is guaranteed to deliver a masterclass in house and techno on Friday 7th June, drawn from his Innervisions imprint and beyond, while another man famed for his fiercely unique approach to DJing is Ricardo Villalobos, arguably the minimal genre’s most recognisable figure and notorious for his mind-bending selections. He’ll take the reins on the same day as Rush Hour boss Hunee, weaving rare disco, soul and house gems in the same breathtaking style that has taken him grooving across the globe.
World music connoisseur Gilles Peterson, electro icon DJ Stingray and the diverse offerings of Objekt and Mumdance will also prove unmissable, alongside talent drafted in from Stateside, continental Europe and the farthest corners of the UK in the form of Fort Romeau, S_AS, Volvox, Caristaand Batu.
The following day, on Saturday 8th June, wanderers of the afterlife Tale Of Us return to Boston Manor Park for the third time, promising to bring their otherworldly atmosphere and trademark melancholic soundscapes to proceedings. From J2 regulars to an overdue debutant, Loco Dice makes his bow with his bruising take on house and techno, undoubtedly proving why he has found long lasting favour amongst the masses.
The bill also features an acclaimed artist who embodies the new frontier and changing face of electronic music; Amelie Lens. As one of Belgium’s most exciting talents, Amelie has gained a formidable reputation across the globe thanks to her Exhale parties.
Technological whizz Max Cooper, Drumcode mercenary Bart Skils and Afterlife alumni VAAL and Liverpudlian groover Lauren Lo Sung complete the bill, making this not only the biggest, but most comprehensive edition of Junction 2 to date.
Spanning five bespoke arenas of music, from the starkly industrial Bridge to the lush and leafy Woods, and paired with LWE uncompromising approach to organisation, high quality production and outstanding sound, Junction 2 offers an exceptional and unique experience for electronic music fans in London’s festival calendar.
1st, 2nd and 3rd release tickets have already sold out. 4th release tickets are available for the Friday priced just £47.50 + BF and 5th release for the Saturday priced £55 +BF. Get yours here: www.junction2.london
