The world’s biggest drum and bass festival, Let It Roll, has announced the first wave of artists for its first-ever, full UK event on Halloween weekend, Saturday, October 25 at O2 Academy Brixton, London.
Announced for the London show is headliner Sub Focus, following the success of his crossover drum & bass smash ‘Desire’ and current anthem ‘Solar System’ soundtracking summer 2019. Joining the UK star are Turno, Calyx & Teebee, Breakage and Randall, Harriet Jaxxon, Data 3, Dilemma, Kamarachi, Arcane, Suki B2B Bifidus Aktif, with more headliners to be announced. The London show is the only Let It Roll event outside of their bi-annual festivals in 2019, and the Brixton show will feature over twenty of the planet’s most exciting d&b acts across four rooms.
Let It Roll has been the leading drum & bass festival brand for over a decade and its Czech Republic event at Milovice Airfield, a former Soviet base near Prague, plays host to multiple stages and hundreds of the genre’s leading artists. Thousands of ravers travelled to the site from across the world, including a sizable UK contingent, for this summer’s event, which was staged 1-4 August.
Saturday, October 25 will see almost 5000 drum & bass fans descend on South London’s premiere live venue to experience Let It Roll’s epic stage production and next-level sound. Let It Roll has set the bar for global drum & bass events and O2 Academy Brixton is a fitting venue for the event’s full venue takeover. Large enough to make a splash with their signature supersized production, giant robots and impressive circular Portal stage, but perfectly sized to capture the intensity of their parties, Brixton Academy is rich in London music heritage and drum & bass culture.
A landmark venue during the development of Andy C’s ‘All Night’ concept in 2015, the chosen venue for Chase & Status’s live album in 2012 and home to shows, tours and videos from pretty much every pop and rock star you can think of in the last 50 years; now it’s time for O2 Academy Brixton to welcome every junglist’s favourite robot overlords.
August 1 – 4, 2019: 300 artists descended on the Milovice airfield including headliners Chase & Status, Andy C, High Contrast, Noisia, Pendulum, Camo & Krooked, Dimension and chart-smashing heavyweights Sub Focus and Wilkinson performing one of their legendary rare back-to-back sessions!

Renowned for its epic opening show story that pitches robots against humans and each other, the festival’s gargantuan structures, immersive stage décor and themes have consistently levelled up each year. 2019 was no exception, with new themes to each arena and rave space; ranging from the grand XXXL Mothership mainstage to the vibrant, lush bucolic immersive nature of Eve’s Garden via outer-planetary spaces such as The Temple and the intergalactic junkyard Shredder stage, the stage production at Let It Roll 2019 is just as immense, mighty and next level as its line-up.
