Terminal V have released the stage hosts and artist allocation for their top-heavy Easter showcase. Four arenas have been confirmed at the Royal Highland Centre. Set for Saturday 11th April, a tonne of talent is getting dumped on Edinburgh and now we can see who will line-up alongside who.
Main stage - Area V
The main stage, dubbed Area V, is stacked with talent and will definitely be the stage that fans of techno gravitate towards. Richie Hawtin and Nina Kraviz are the two marquee names, further bolstered by Charlotte de Witte and Helena Hauff. Extra support comes in the form of I Hate Models and local talent Frazier. Pound-for-pound, this explosive arena ranks amongst the best we’ve seen at any festival, anywhere in the world.
La La Land
Next, Green Velvet invites you to La La Land. Affectionately named after the Chicago legend’s seminal 2001 hit. He’ll be joined on stage by past collaborators Eats Everything and Prok & Fitch. Ejeca, Luigi Madonna and Rebuke add further firepower to a well-crafted line-up that is sure to send revellers dizzy.
Terminal V’s third arena has been christened The Greenhouse - and we can understand why. There will be condensation on the walls, as we get hot and steamy to the sound of house, disco and gospel. Floorplan, Honey Dijon and Mike Servito are the big names, while the ever-reliable Kornel Kovács and Classic Music’s Luke Solomon ensure the grooves will be of the highest quality throughout.
The fourth stage is a place where things are likely to get a bit more experimental, veer off into leftfield and somewhere you could hear anything from twinkly electronica to dubstep and IDM. Outlier has been curated by Bonobo, who will DJ at the top of the bill. He’s enlisted frantic live act KiNK and Hessle Audio bookworm Ben UFO to help him take attendees on a journey through sound. The stage is wrapped-up by two further scene leaders in Avalon Emerson and Shanti Celeste, making it the stage that leans most towards our own taste.
The fifth and final arena is headed by Edinburgh's Sneaky Pete’s club, who return to host their very own all female artist stage for a second time round. It features cutting edge artists such as Germany's Lena Willikens, NTS radio's Moxie, Lo-fi house sensation Nite Fleit, LGBTQ electronica star Octa Octa, Saoirse, Telfort and Tijana T.
