In addition to this, PMR Records affiliate SG Lewis will share his emotive and nocturnally-flecked soul to the live stage.
Next in line is Panorama Bar resident Tama Sumo who will join the festival for her second appearance, who is sure to heat up the woods with her brightly-hued, funky, feel-good selections. In addition, acclaimed French selector Ivan Smagghe and Disco Halal head honcho Moscoman are also both set to unleash some heavy damage under the canopy of Bygrave Woods.
