Freerotation have just announced the initial line-up for the 2009 edition of the festival, which takes place in August.
Now entering its third year, the Welsh festival looks to showcase the best in European electronic music in the quaint surroundings of Baskerville Hall, a 19th century hotel near the village of Hay-on-Wye. Instead of a whole new set of names for this year, many of the guests have played at the previous two events, with Move D, Shackleton, Bodycode, Jackmate and Uzuri boss Lakuti all returning for their third concurrent year.
There are a few fresh faces this time around, however, with Efdemin and Rndm both making solo appearances as well as performing live together as Pigon. Fellow Berlin residents Marcel Dettmann, Dandy Jack, Freund der Familie and Sven Weisemann will also make the trip over to Wales for the festival, but organisers Steevio and Suzybee have made sure that there's still plenty of homegrown talent featured on the bill. Jitterbug and Wbeeza will be representing the new house sound of London, whilst local favourites Leif and Tom Ellis will again showcase their laptop'n'bass live set. There's also a slight increase in the amount of dubstep on offer this year, albeit on a more techno-friendly tip, with performances scheduled for Narcossist, 2562 and Peverelist.
If you're looking to get tickets for Freerotation, then you will have to apply for membership first of all, which can be done over at their official site. Standard tickets come with camping, but there are also a limited amount of rooms available for hire in the actual hotel if braving the outdoors isn't for you.
