The all-day event will be headlined by dance pioneers Orbital who are set to mark their 30th year at the forefront of dance music in style. Renowned for their headline slots at Glastonbury amongst others, they will perform their full festival show in Birmingham.
Indie heroes Shed Seven are riding high on the success of their recent top ten album ‘Instant Pleasures’, and Happy Mondays who after 30 years in the business remain as one of the most important bands around.
In a never seen before line up exclusive, Shaun Ryder will support himself with a Black Grape set earlier in the day. The Main Stage also features performances from Embrace who are celebrating a top five album with 'Love Is A Basic Need' and Liverpool legends Cast.
Glasvegas are set to perform a special anniversary show celebrating ten years since the release of their debut album.
On the Forum Live Stage there will be an exclusive festival performance from Julian Cope. The epic supporting cast comes from The Wedding Present, Gang Of Four, A certain Ratio, The Stairs, The Membranes, Psyence and Deja Vega.
The outdoor stage, sponsored by Eventim, features headliners Reverend And The Makers who will be joined by Dreadzone and Bentley Rhythm Ace. Jim Bob performs a solo set and his Carter USM bandmate Fruitbat’s band Abdoujaparov and Smoove & Turrell complete the line-up.
In Forum Live, Star Shaped bring us their Britpop disco featuring Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock. Steve will be playing best of his Northern Soul and Motown collection.
The “In conversation” stage hosts Steve Lamacq who will be performing his "Going Deaf for a Living" show and Steve "Adj" Atherton relaying hilarious tales of his time with the Stone Roses.
Senior Venue Sales Manager for the Genting Arena, Alex Ginever said: “These are the artists that sound tracked a golden era of music, and to have them all play this one day line-up is going to be epic! The Genting Arena is becoming a firm favourite as an alternative festival location for organisers and we’re sure that gig-goers are going to love it.”
Ticket prices include entry to two special aftershow parties. In the Main Arena the Hacienda will descend on Birmingham with Todd Terry headlining a superb line up alongside Marshall Jefferson and Jon Dasilva.
