Benga, Marc "MK" Kinchen and Jay Denham are just some of the latest names to be added to this year's line-up.
After announcing a flurry of big names in their initial line-up, it seems as if the team behind this year's festival still have quite a few surprises up their sleeves. One inclusion which is sure to raise a few eyebrows is the appearance of house legend Marc "MK" Kinchen, who will be performing live alongside his brother Scotty Deep. It's not clear whether the show is just a one-off, or the start of more live appearances for Kinchen, but their performance will be sure to be one of the most anticipated sets of the entire festival. Another big addition to the line-up is the US debut of Ame, Henrik Schwarz and Dixon's live project, which now goes under the title of A Critical Mass.
Benga and Neil Landstrumm will also venture over from the UK with their respective low-end shenanigans, whilst the Ed Banger crew will also be present, with sets coming from label head Busy P and Krazy Baldhead. Revellers looking for some proper electro action will be glad to know that Anthony Rother will also be bringing his live set to the festival.
But what about musicians from Detroit? Paxahau certainly haven't forgotten about supporting the city's grass roots, and have roped in beatdown boys Delano Smith, Mike Clark and Exchange Bureau to show festival goers how people get down in the 313. Octave One, Kevin Reynolds and Chuck Gibson (AKA Perception) will also play live at Hart Plaza, whilst original Detroit radio DJ Al Ester will be sure to pull the old school heads out of the woodwork for his set.
