    Get ready for a summer of epic proportions as the UK’s most revered club brand storms back into the festival market after a 6-year hiatus, with a phenomenal statement of intent. Having built an impressive portfolio of venues in this interim period alongside hosting a handful of successful outdoor events they have planned this major festival to the finest detail. Renowned leaders of the pack, the first acts out of the gate give you a steer on just what you can expect from one of the country’s best loved music brands. With 2008 set to celebrate two decades of acid house, the back drop is set for a true celebration of electronic music past, present and future. Gatecrasher was a defining moment in the history of club culture and The Summer Sound System 2008 will see them back on centre stage with a spell binding line up, magical production and fresh, new vision.

    Returning to the site of summer’s past, the event will take place over 2 fun filled days in Northampton, on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th May. The bank holiday blow out will be peppered with surprises and a dizzyingly diverse selection of the world’s finest artists and talent all with the highest production values the UK has to offer. First up, the world-renowned THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS confirm a headline slot on Sunday’s main stage with their unique blend of psychedelia, and electronic block rockin’ beats. With only a handful of UK live dates planned this year this may be a rare chance to catch the Grammy Award winning festival heroes and their unique, electrifying live performance. Renowned for their incendiary live performances, seminal electro/rock band THE PRODIGY will be headlining Saturday’s shindig with their unique blend of brutal punk-rock riffs and dark, voodoo beats. One of just 4 UK festival experiences this promises to be radically different from recent shows, and will be an unmissable showcase of classic and new tracks, for the in demand band who last played live in the UK 2 years ago.

    Joining them on the Saturday will be the twisted and sexy post-punk brilliance of Brazilian sextet CSS. Their fabulously kooky pop and colourful performances have made them one of the buzz bands of the year and a MUST for 2008. Raising the stakes for Sunday and further cementing this as a unique offering, will be Mercury Prize winning DIZZEE RASCAL with his exotic blend of MCing, conventional rap, grime and ragga. An exceptional talent for an exceptional festival – and just the tip of the iceberg!

    The A list acts don’t stop there. The next exceptional guests come in the form of sampling, experimental, grime, cutting and pasting Soulwax Nite Versions A.k.a. Expect samples ranging from The Gossip to James Brown to The Klaxons!

    Two days of must-see performances are guaranteed with a giddy array of artists already confirmed for this weekend musical marathon across 20 arenas. SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO, DIGITALISM (LIVE), NEW YOUNG PONY CLUB, TIGA, AUDIO BULLY’S, BLOC PARTY (DJ SET), THE WHIP, PETE TONG, RONI SIZE, DJ MARKY, ZANE LOWE AND DJ YODA are all on board for this exceptional misadventure in music, with more big names still to come.

    The music and artists are not the only thing of exceptional quality, this year will also see a new flock of promoters add their own twist to celebrations: Northern Techo Monkeys DIRTY DISCO, ZANE LOWE and TIGA will all be hosting their own arenas whilst Metropolis and One Nation take charge of the urban flavours. The super cool Ed Banger label will be bringing a mêlée of French tech wizardry to the show with old favourites Hed Kandi and Fantazia returning for late night mayhem. VIPs can look forward to the sounds of Sean Rowley’s Guilty Pleasures, which sets the scene for one of the best party packages on the planet.

    Music aside, Summer Sound System will be upping the ante with the entire event spectacle. Introducing boutique camping, a 24-hour market place with gourmet food stalls and out of town shopping plus an onsite diary room, supersonic fairground and a veritable feast of additional adventures. Facilities will be second to none with secure onsite lockers, plentiful cash machines, Ibiza angels to massage away your aching limbs and even karaoke for the wannabe starlets.

    With a nod to the past and a foot in the future this will be the ultimate event for the discerning clubber and all round music lover. As the first major festival of the year it’s the perfect date to kick start your summer. A cast that crosses indie, dance, pop and urban this is set to mark a new chapter for Gatecrasher and set the stage for their greatest ever show.

    Saturday 24th – Sunday 25th May, 2008 / Turweston Aerodrome, Northamptonshire
    Festival Fever Mounts as Gatecrasher Mark 20 Years Of Acid House With Electronic Heroes Past and Present

    ***FULL LINE UP ANNOUNCED***

    NEW ACTS:
    JUSTICE / PAUL OAKENFOLD / PENDULUM / ARMAND VAN HELDEN / ANNIE MAC / BLACK GHOSTS / SINDEN & HERVE / LUCIANO / MEAT KATIE / DIGITALISM plus many more…

    PLUS HEADLINES SETS FROM
    THE PRODIGY / THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS / CSS / DIZZEE RASCAL / SOULWAX NITE VERSIONS / SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO

    TICKETS NOW ON SALE FROM www.summersoundsystem.com


    Not content with securing two of dance music’s most heralded live acts in THE PRODIGY and THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS, Gatecrasher have just announced the full details of their May Bank Holiday Weekender; and it truly is one of the most colourful celebrations of contemporary and retrospective dance music the UK has ever seen. Falling in the year that sees acid house turn 20, Gatecrasher has lined up a weekend of non-stop celebration, combining the architects of dance music with the current crop of scene-setters.

    Keeping Anglo-French relations at their very best, the Grammy award nominated JUSTICE, whose ubiquitous mix of Simian’s ‘Never Be Alone’ dominated dance-floors throughout the world, will be setting the stage alight with their dirty, driven, blend of rocking electro house. The malicious mix maestros are currently on a world tour with their bedazzling Christian light show and punk/dance ethic, which could turn any house atheist into a convert.

    The line up continues with heavyweight artists a plenty. Heading back across the pond will be the mighty PAUL OAKENFOLD who will be delivering a riotous set of tried and tested anthems for the expectant crowds. With numerous chart hits and worldwide acclaim, Oakey has shaped mixes for the likes of Snoop Dog to U2 to The Happy Mondays and is now making a homecoming trip to an audience that has grown up, danced and educated themselves together with his meteoric rise to DJ infamy.

    Antipodean noiseniks PENDULUM look to maintain their grip on world domination with the visceral juggernaut that is their incredible live show. Delivering earth shattering beats and buzz-saw bass, the five-piece drum and bass outfit have been destroying audiences across the world for the past two years, making them one of the Summer Sound System’s must-see acts.

    Back on the deck-bound tip ARMAND VAN HELDEN will also be making a transatlantic trip to thump out his notorious blend of big beat, house and hip-hop, plucking some rare treats from his legendary record box. Shaping up to be yet another definitive moment in music, 2008’s Summer Sound System is leading the way for UK dance events and recruiting the cream of the current crop for this spectacular show. With UK club culture’s finest exponents including Annie Mac, Black Ghosts, Sinden & Herve, Luciano, Meat Katie and many many more, all ready to drop the musical equivalent of Valhalla, the scene is set for exceptional adventure in music across 2 days in May.

    To contain theses hordes of wild dance and electro beasts, Gatecrasher has meticulously crafted 20 unique, individual stages to cater for each divine variety of dance music and all manner of festival goers, ranging from the main stream of the main stage to the classic Crasher arena that will feature a host of legends including Paul Van Dyk, John 00 Fleming, Mauro Piccoto and Hernan Cattaneo. There will also be the Hard House communion of Storm, the filthy grooves of the Cement arena, the illuminating Hardcore Heaven, the glitterball vibes of Dirty Disco and the essential 20 Years Of Acid House arena, which boasts a line-up that is a veritable who’s who of dance music legends. Industrious promoters and music moguls such as Northern Techo Monkeys DIRTY DISCO, ZANE LOWE and TIGA will also be hosting their own arenas whilst Metropolis and One Nation take charge of the urban flavours. The super cool Ed Banger label will be bringing a mêlée of French tech wizardry to the show with old favourites Hed Kandi and Fantazia returning for late night mayhem. VIPs can also look forward to the nostalgic sounds of Sean Rowley’s Guilty Pleasures…

    Music aside, Summer Sound System will be upping the ante promising an unforgettable spectacle. Introducing Boutique Camping, to give proceedings the authentic festival feel missing from so many other dance events, a 24-hour market place, with gourmet food stalls and out of town shopping, plus an onsite diary room, supersonic fairground and an incredible feast of additional adventures.

    I want to go to this, the only thing putting me off is a weak system/sound restrictions. Quotes from DNBA about the last one a few years ago...

    ORIGINAL: Doctor D

    "We need more volume!" Shy FX virtually giving up on his set in protest etc etc.

    quote:

    ORIGINAL: DJ C RUSH

    HIS SOUNDSYSTEM UNDER SCRUTINY AND THE SOUND WAS APPALLING!
