Hotbox had already lit the flame with the smoking first artist announcement for LOST! In the Dock. But now, they’ve upped the game by revealing the next headliners: Disciples.
In a few short years, the London three-piece have jumped-up the rankings thanks to a slew of catchy releases. When they burst onto the scene in 2015, it was the lyrics of songwriter Duvall’s They Don’t Know got caught in the head of the nation - and gave the collective mainstream credibility with underground appeal. Further hits followed in the form of Daylight and On My Mind. The boys had struck on a winning formula - and one that bridged house music with commercial chart success.
It wasn’t just the public who took notice. The trio started getting admirers in very high places. Not only were they championed by Radio 1 tastemakers, but soon they had earned themselves studio time with scene heavyweights David Guetta and Calvin Harris. Both the resulting collaborations enjoyed monumental crossover success. And it could be argued that Guetta and Harris re-routed their career paths off the back of those tracks.
Whilst Duvall, Gavin and Luke have hit dizzying heights with festival appearances at Creamfields, Wireless and SW4, LOST! In the Dock represents a big stage at a large-scale underground party to sink their teeth into. It’s another accolade ticked off the list.
In addition, the chart-toppers are joined by label boss Lee Foss, hard-hitting Low Steppa and Bump & Grind sensations Waze & Odyssey, plus Eli Brown, GW Harrison and Jaden Thompson. They join the previously announced Claptone, Danny Howard, Santé, Franky Rizardo, Max Chapman and Weiss, who are fronted by the legendary MK for his Area10 takeover.
With the line-up now complete, this is a booster-sized line-up befitting the indoor festival billing - and a huge signal of intent for Hotbox’s biggest event to date. After a run of techno-orientated parties, this is a Tobacco Dock show aimed squarely at the house-heads.
