We're coming back to Reading and Leeds this month, again taking over the Alternative Stage to bring you into the after-hours, all in celebration of our 15th anniversary!
Taking place on Friday night in Reading, and Saturday and Sunday in Leeds, we're bringing our most exciting line up yet, with exclusive live sets, DJ slots and other birthday surprises from 9.30pm until late, ensuring the party continues long after the headliners have finished.
The Alternative Stage at Reading on Friday will feature house party DJ battles from BBC Radio 1's Jack Saunders and indie-rockers Circa Waves, who will be joining the party after their performance on the BBC Radio 1 Stage earlier that day. Other unmissable DJs will also be featuring, pitted against each other in who can get the biggest sing-alongs.
We're also bringing indie veterans and Transgressive alumni Mystery Jets to Leeds on the Saturday night of the festival, along with psychedelic duo Let’s Eat Grandma. On Sunday night, we're putting on one of the most potent and powerful figures in British music right now, Steel Banglez. Guaranteed to close the weekend in epic style, Transgressive Soundsystem will be behind the decks once more, whilst there will also be a Beyonce VS Drake DJ party on Sunday night (hosted by Bless and Superhero DJs) – which is not to be missed!
Transgressive co-founder Toby L comments: "To mark our 15th birthday year, we are now able to announce our return to Reading & Leeds, the ultimate climax to the summer. We've pushed the boat out this year, bringing Transgressive alumni Mystery Jets and Circa Waves along for the weekend, not to mention current stars Let's Eat Grandma. We've also gone big on the Sunday, to ensure the party doesn't slow down - Steel Banglez is one of the biggest pop crossover names of recent times and will keep things moving right until the bitter end. And what the hell, we're also going to throw a Beyonce versus Drake set straight afterwards, just two sets of DJs and hosts/MC’s dishing out the biggest jams from their respective catalogues. Bring on the August Bank Holiday weekend."
