Hijacked Festival 2015 is presented by Thick As Thieves and takes place at Powderham Castle in Kenton, Exeter on Saturday 30th May.
As we head into the final countdown to the both May, electronic music, art and culture festival Hijacked Festival 2015 | Exeter has added more music artists to the lineup.
Joining Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Artwork, Congo Natty, Dark Sky, Disciples, Mak & Pasteman and more on the line-up are the almighty Ms Dynamite, house face Bok Bok and feel-good party duo The Menendez Brothers, among others.
Hijacked Festival’s themed areas – a full immersive aquarium, 1970s jungle, dramatic and playful main stage and hunting bar – will transform the beautiful grounds of Exeter’s historic Powderham Castle. Or soar high above the site in the festival’s very own hot air balloon.
Unique techno-tinged DJ Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs plays a DJ set, and UK mainstay vocalist Ms Dynamite headline. Pioneering producer Artwork, Nightslugs’ own Bok Bok, and jungle forefather Congo Natty appear, plus critically acclaimed bass explorers Dark Sky and house party people Disciples join the party. Electronic selectors Eli & Fur take a dark turn, bass-house duo Mak & Pasteman bring it, and jungle invigorators Nanci and Phoebe keep it jumping.
Look out for Benedict Jackson, MC, DJ and producer Chunky, and Jabru, who promises to smash the ‘floor. House creative Last Magpie offers a genre-bashing set, party people The Menendez Brothers head, forward-thinker Madam X brings the bass, and disco-fueled duo MermaidS get involved, and there are so many more to check.
The picturesque grounds of Powderham Castle, the 600-year old home of the Earl and Countess of Devon, which stands in a beautiful deer park on the banks of the Exe estuary, plays host to the city’s second visit from Hijacked Festival – the nomadic electronic music and creativity-embracing experience that ‘hijacks’ idyllic city locations. An intimate daytime party in an iconic city location – a hijack – the first Hijacked Festival event was a triumph, selling out, and 2015 will be even bigger.
Presenting an intimate daytime party in a picturesque inner-city location where electronic music takes the focus – a hijack – the first Hijacked Festival event was a triumph, selling out, and 2015 is set to be even bigger.
