We don’t know about you, but we’ve just about had enough of this terrible weather now, so roll on summer! More specifically, roll on Hideout.
Sound-systems, sun and something for everyone, the lineup has just expanded to make the Croatian festival even more tantalising.
After announcing an unbeatable first wave of names, Hideout 2018 continues to shape up to be an unmissable highlight of the European festival season – with a huge second influx of names heading to the Island of Pag next year.
Leading today’s announcement is production trio Disciples, who will bring their unmistakable blend of underground sounds to Zrce Beach. Having broken through with smash hit ‘They Don’t Know’ and a collaboration with DJ kingpin Calvin Harris on ‘How Deep Is Your Love’, the performance from the threesome will be a party like no other.
Another name added today is Jamie Jones, a pivotal figure in the underground scene who’s been instrumental in helping usher in the recent house music revival. The Welsh-born, LA-based DJ/producer and Hot Creations label co-founder is infamous for shattering boundaries in house and techno, and has been an essential spinner in venues across the globe, refining his performances to form one of the most exciting shows dance music has to offer. Heading to Hideout in 2018, his performance will be a true spectacle nestled underneath Croatian skies.
A fellow member of the Hot Creations crew, Richy Ahmed is the second name to be added to the irresistible lineup. As a huge name from the British house music scene, Richy has been a powerhouse in the resurgence of the genre, and has formed an undeniable presence in the party capital of the world, holding down residencies and all night sets at Ibiza’s Paradise DC-10 and Amnesia. Richy’s reputation as one of the best DJs and producers around is firmly established, and his beach side set next June will no doubt highlight this.
Club royalty Steve Lawler will also be bringing it back to the beach for Hideout 2018. A giant in his field and now 20 years deep into the game, Steve started out organising the infamous raves underneath the M42 motorway, and has garnered the nickname “The King of Space” thanks to his 9-year reign in the legendary Balearic Ibiza venue. His set at Hideout 2018 is bound to be an awe-inspiring display of an artist who really shows no signs of stopping.
With the likes of bassline legends Waze & Odyssey, DJ Zinc and Mak & Pasteman also added today, plus Warehouse Project regular Max Chapman, Denney and Sam Divine, today’s announcement further cements Croatia’s Island of Pag in the centre of 2018’s dance music map.
