    I'm heading to Exit Festival again this year after enjoying it so much last year. It's been a while since I've danced outdoors on a main stage with so many people to top class drum and bass music.

    So what's the deal this year? The line up has been announced and I don't see any dnb DJ's at all - please don't tell me they're cutting back on the best thing about the festival? Any ideas?

    Cheers Gloxxy, I'd seen Pendulum (didn't really count that as pure dnb), but I hadn't noticed Dbridge & Instra:mental - I feel better now :)

    I'm sure there will be more. There's always DnB at Exit.

    That's what I thought - great news. I've never seen or heard D Bridge before either so it will be a good place to break my duck.

    last year was epic, most of my mates went to the dance arena so i was left on my own at the main stage :(
    im definitely going, but im sure they will announce more dnb djs, i rate friction will be on, as he hasn't done the last two years (i dont think) and probs artists with releases in the summer. but yeah the set andy played was just :not_worthy

    Yep I'm with you there, it was amazing, the place was going mad. GQ seemed pretty genuine when he said it was one of the best nights he could remember. I don't usually even like Andy C that much (shock horror), but he was the highlight for me last year.

    I'm usually a big fan of Friction so good to hear he'll be there. Let's hope he plays a different set.

    haha i was just being hypothetical, good that he's playing. I havn't seen him since 08 so i guess he's probably altered his set a little since then :rinsed:

    Why did I ever doubt they'd sort us out :)

    Randall on that system would be FIRE.

    Saw Friction b2b Zinc on the main stage back in 2007 and it was of the sickest expriences ever.

    As was LTJ Bukem from the same year who played a 6-7 hour set until the early hours of the morning.

    Exit is fucking sick, will be going again next year I think
