Have a look at last year’s Summadayze/Summafieldayze highlights reel below!

More info at: or



Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons make up one of the most successful electronic acts the world has ever seen - this dynamic duo have changed the face of electronic music. This year, to give fans something totally different, the boys will be playing a DJ Set that promises to take you on the ultimate musical journey – one that echoes their own personal inspirations and musical experiences over the last decade. That’s why the Chems have had countless #1 hits and won numerous Grammy awards – it’s the same reason they’re headlining 2013’s Summadayze / Summafieldayze festivals – they’re freakin’ awesome!!! This is one not to be missed!


An artist that needs little introduction, M.I.A first appeared on our radar in 2005 with the debut of her first album, Arular. The album was praised by critics and fans alike and was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize that year. It also gave us the first taste of her explosive musical style. As original as it is downright cool, M.I.A somehow manages to fuse hip-hop, electro and pop into something spectacular. In 2006, M.I.A became a household name, Skyrocketing into superstardom with her stellar second full-length release, Kala. Her smash hit single Paper Planes has sold over 3 million copies in the US alone! Her latest single ‘Bad Gurlz’ has already been a huge success here in Australia - stay tuned for the release of her forthcoming album ‘Matangi’.


Knife Party is a production and performance outfit fronted by Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen. While on tour with their previous band, Rob and Gareth felt the urge to start a new project with the aim of showcasing ideas which didn’t fit into the existing mould, and decided to name themselves after their favourite Deftones track. Their debut EP ‘100% No Modern Talking’ released less than 12 months ago, took the dance music world by storm, racking up over 50,000 downloads in less than 24 hours, and today more than 500,000 downloads have been sold worldwide! Despite also being made available for free on the Knife Party website, the EP broke the iTunes Top Ten charts in both the UKand Australia as well as reaching No.1 in the Beatport Releases chart. This summer the pair released their highly anticipated sophomore EP ‘Rage Valley’ which shot into the iTunes Top 5 in the US, UK and Australia and remains in those charts today. All four tracks from the EP have infiltrated clubs and radio stations the world over. On the live front Knife Party bring their own brand of ‘rage’ to crowds around the globe, the last 12 months have seen them play everywhere from Ultra in Miami, Amnesia in Ibiza, Wireless in London, Electric Daisy in Las Vegas, and now returning to Australia this December after having hosted their own Earstorm Records stage at Future Music Festival at the beginning of this year.


There is no other band around that blends striking synths and flawless vocals like Hot Chip; and they’re tearing their way through the music cosmos to blow us away at Summafieldayze. The London based electronic masterminds have a string of classic albums to their name including Coming On Strong and The Warning, which gave us the huge hit ‘Boy From School’Hot Chip’s third album, Made in the Dark, released in 2008, received admiration from all corners of the Earth. Their track ‘Ready for the Floor’transfixed music lovers of all tastes and received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. In 2009, Hot Chip released One Life Stand; an album so good it was an instant classic. The album boasted a dizzying number of stand-out tracks, most notably the title track, One Life Stand, and the smoothly synth-heavy I Feel Better. If their 2009 album wasn’t mind-blowing enough, Hot Chip are arriving in Australia on the back of their 5th studio album, In Our Heads. “Fun” is the word the band use to describe what it was like to make the album, but ‘fun’ doesn’t even come close to describing how good it is to listen to.


SBTRKT is one of those artists who is almost annoying addictive. His debut album Young Turks pulled off the almost impossible; it’s bursting with fresh ideas, and yet it sounds immediately familiar. Young Turks reached #42 on The Guardian’s list of Top 50 Albums of 2011 and gave us hits like ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Trials of the Past’. The London based musician/producer brings not only musical prowess but also a little flair to his live shows, with his trademark tribal mask setting the tone on stage. Get set for the brilliance balance of vocals and basslines that SBTRKT will bring to Summafieldayze.


Fedde Le Grand is, without a doubt, one of the biggest DJ’s in the world. His skills both inside and out of the studio are the stuff legends are made of. Whether he’s demolishing legendary State-side festival Coachella on his debut appearance; racking up a straight hat-trick of Beatport #1’s in the overall charts (with ‘Autosave’, ‘Control Room’ and his massive remix of EBTG’s ‘Missing’), or touring most of the known world devastating clubland as he goes – Le Grand is the name on everyone’s lips. And we haven’t even mentioned his smash-hit ‘Put Your Hands Up For Detroit’ – which reached the #1 spot in 5 countries and cemented his position as one of the world’s best.


Mark Ronson is the business. Born in the UK but growing up in New York, he began cutting his teeth DJ’ing at various clubs around the big apple ‘for anyone that would pay him $5’ - it wasn’t long before he’d gained a reputation for himself. Fast-forward a few years and Mark Ronson is one of the worlds best known (and most sought after) DJ/Producers. He’s collaborated with an enviable list of heavyweight superstars including Amy Winehouse, Duran Duran, Lily Allen, Rufus Wainwright and our very own Daniel Merriweather. He’s won three Grammys, a BRIT award and millions of fans worldwide. We’ve welcomed him to our shores several times before, and frankly, we’ll be damn happy to do it again. Getting back to his roots, Mark will be playing DJ sets on the Summadayze stages.


Most of you would know who Kimbra is by now. Her world-conquering duet with Gotye, Somebody That I Used To Know, reached the number 1 spot in 11 countries worldwide and held the number one spot here in Australia for an astonishing 8 weeks! On top all this hype, her solo career is flourishing. Last year, she won the ARIA award for best female artist and had 3 songs from her debut album Vows earned placements in the world’s largest music poll - Triple J’s hottest 100. One of the freshest new talents out there and renowned for her energetic and colourful live performances, we can’t wait to see what she brings to the festival stage.


Booka Shade are masters of their craft. The Berlin based duo leapt to the forefront of contemporary dance music well over a decade ago and haven’t slowed down since. Booka Shade are one of those rare electronic music acts who channel the spirit and sound of underground techno but who can also rock any festival crowd. And rock them they have. When it comes to these boys, it’s more a question of which festival haven’t they played? Not only have they conquered the underground clubbing scene across the globe, but they’ve also lent their production magic to remixes for the likes of Depeche Mode, Kings Of Leon, Tiga, Hot Chip and many MANY more. Amongst countless other accolades, Resident Advisor named Booka Shade as one of the top 5 live music acts in the world! Need we say more??


Without a shadow of a doubt, Eddie Halliwell is a legend, a hero and a massively popular DJ worshipped by many’. – DJ Mag.

There are people who play records and there are DJs who blow minds.. Eddie Halliwell is the latter… Labeled as one of the most technically gifted DJs of his generation. A DJ who in less than a decade has established himself as one of the globe’s few true ‘Superstar DJs’. Halliwell is a DJing megastar, consistently ranked in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ Poll and in 2010 was nominated in Mixmag’s prestigious Greatest DJ Of All Time poll. Behind the decks the charismatic showman is a hive of activity, constantly manipulating the music with lightning-quick cuts, layers of effects and slick scratches. Playing tracks from across a broad musical spectrum (House, electro, techno + trance) he harnesses the vigour of every beat, synth, hi-hat, squelch and squeak, using his technical expertise to generate energy and manipulate new sounds. He pushes new DJing technologies to their maximum potential, performing tricks and generating effects unrivalled by his peers – Tiesto and Paul Van Dyk to name a few. It is this, Halliwell’s unique ability to take the art of DJing to a higher level of technical prowess and entertainment, which has won him the admiration fans across the world along with the respect of his fellow DJs. Halliwell also currently holds residencies at global super-clubs Cream, Gatecrasher, and Goodgreef. Summadayze – here comes “Eddie, Eddie, Eddie.”


AN21 & Max Vangeli are best friends. Best friends who just happen to be two of the fastest rising stars in dance music today. Born in Moldova, but relocating to the US, Max Vangeli has exploded on to the global dance music scene. He’s been heralded by MTV as ‘one of the most promising artists of 2011’, and was one of DJ Mags tope 5 DJ’s to watch in the same year! Swedish national AN21 (pronounced Antione) is no stranger to the electronic music world. Being the younger brother of Steve Angello, AN21 has music coursing through his veins. His work so far has cemented him as an outstanding leader of the universal house explosion. And so what happened when these two BFF’s got together to create music? Well, their remix of Pendulum’s The Island (alongside Steve Angello) was dubbed ‘Hottest Track In The World’ by Radio One’s Zane Lowe. Their debut album (aptly titled) People Of The Night which dropped this month, boasts collaborations with Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Example and Dirty South to name a few. At seventeen tracks the album is a bold creative statement, but one that pays off fully as it allows the pair to articulate the depth of their musical talents in the broadest way yet.


Carl Craig has been described as a creative visionary, a groundbreaking electronic music icon, an inspirational artist, an esteemed Grammy-nominated composer, a world-class DJ and an ambassador for his native Detroit. In fact, he’s considered to be one of the most important names in the Detroit generation of techno producers and DJs. Craig has released many successful albums and EPs under a large number of aliases, such as BFC, Psyche, Paperclip People, 69, Designer Music and Innerzone Orchestra - under which alias he released perhaps his best known track ‘Bug in The Bassbin’ in 92 – which has been credited as the spark that inspired the evolution of drum ‘n’ bass. His remix discography boasts some of the most desirable names in music – LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Junior Boys (nominated for a Grammy Award), Gavin Russom & Delia Gonzalez, Theo Parrish, Tori Amos, Can, Goldfrapp, Friendly Fires, Caribou, Tiga, Unkle, Yello and many more!


Maya Jane Coles. Where do we start? Born in Britain (of British/Japanese decent) Maya grew up surrounded by and exposed to an eclectic mixture of sounds; from Dub to Punk, Soul to Jazz, Classical to World. It’s no wonder then that Maya’s musical journey (epic so far!) has seen her flirt with a dizzying array of genres. First producing hip-hop at 15; Maya was determined that she should be able to learn the skills to realise her own vision at every part of the process from production to performance. That’s why now, on a typical Maya Jane Coles record, Maya will have written, produced, engineered, arranged, mixed and performed every element of the track; sometimes she even sings vocals and designs the sleeve artwork too! Just ask the likes of Damon Albarn or Tricky – they’ll agree. In 2011, she was voted ‘Producer of the Year’ in DJ Mag, named ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ by Mixmag, and ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Ibiza DJ awards – to name a few. Her heralded remix’s for the likes of Florence and The Machine, Little Dragon and Tricky have further cemented her position as one of the brightest young talents in electronic music today. 2012 has seen her take to the stage at some of the world’s biggest festivals in over 20 countries, including Glastonbury (UK), Benicassim (Spain), Awake (Germany), ADE (Holland) and Creamfields (UK). At 24, I think we can agree; she’s just getting started.


It’s not surprising that Disclosure are being dubbed as the most exciting and uplifting producers to come out of the UK this year. With their debut EP ‘Carnival/I Love That… You Know’ clocking up well over 60,000 downloads to date in over 150 countries, it’s no wonder the latest offering from these young brothers (Guy & Howard Lawrence) peaked at #1 on the UK I-tunes electronic chart. As explosive as it is dynamic, EP ‘The Face’ seamlessly blends deep house bass lines, Dilla-esque snares and oh so melodic two step lines to create a kind of sonic originality that is so often lacking these days. These guys show a sonic maturity way beyond their years – distinctively British but undoubtedly global, Disclosure are simply the sound of electronic music –past, present and Future!


Erol Alkan has worked with everyone under the sun – whether it be pop queens Madonna and Kylie Minogue, Indie superstars Franz Ferdinand or the kings of electro, Daft Punk – this guy really has done it all. In 2006, Erol Alkan was voted DJ of the year by Mixmag, and since, he has created landmark remixes for bands he loves: a crunching reworking of ‘Do You Want To’ for Franz Ferdinand, a brilliant reinterpretation of Hop Chip’s ‘Boy From School’, a psychedelic take on Scissor Sisters’ ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancing’ and a genre-defining remix of Justice’s ‘Waters Of Nazereth’. Recently Erol Alkan he’s lent his astute electro experience to remixes for Metronomy, MGMT, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs to name a few. Famous for his eclectic song choices and his ability to rock any crowd he encounters, Erol Alkan is not to be missed when he hits Summafieldayze.


Fake Blood (aka Theo Keating) is a British electro-house DJ who has made a name for himself under several monikers including The Wiseguys, alongside Paul Eve and The Black Ghosts.

His 2008 Fake Blood released the original track ‘Mars’which sent nightclubs around the globe into a frenzy, and reached #16 on the UK Indie Charts. More recently Fake Blood has dropped several hugely successful remixes including tracks from The Gossip, Calvin Harris, Hot Chip, Underworld and Miike Snow. Fake Blood released his new EP Yes/No during September 2012 and fans of his deep electro basslines and powerful live show will be able to catch all is his new stuff and more at Summafieldayze.


The blissful nature of Adrian Lux’s progressive house tracks stem from an artistic inspired childhood spent in Stockholm with his parents, a former punk rocker and a fashion photographer/filmmaker. Lux’s 2010 breakout hit ‘Teenage Crime’ won hearts absolutely everywhere! An infectious house beat, an attractive guitar loop and stunning ghostly vocals, saw it become a club-land favourite and landed itself at #6 of Australia’s Triple J Hottest 100.

Adrian Lux’s 2012 self-tiled album has stacks of huge hits up its sleeve including ‘Can´t Sleep’ – which was featured in the global video-game phenomenon, FIFA 11 – the infectiously uplifting ‘Burning’. The Swedish beat-smith makes no secret of why audiences want more, more and more of his addictive house beats: “This is going to sound weird,” says Lux, “But it’s hard for me to not write single-type songs – tracks you’ll want to listen to a million times. And that’s okay. It’s better to make one of those than three that sound good, but not great. As long as I provoke a reaction, whether it’s positive or not”.


Like many of the Ed Banger artists, there is a certain mystery that surrounds Breakbot, but what we do know is that (a) He’s a French man; born Thibaut Berland and based inParis (b) he makes deliciously, nu-disco inspired funk that oozes cool in a way that only the French know how to pull off. Initially making a name for himself in 2006 with a remix of Justice’s Let There Be Light, Breakbot made his production debut the following year with the Happy Rabbit EP. In the meantime, he was also busy establishing himself as an in-demand remixer, working on tracks by Digitalism, Sebastien Tellier, Röyksopp, PNAU and many others. Breakbot made his Ed Banger Records production debut withBaby I’m Yours in 2010 and followed this up with the equally amazing Fantasy EP last year -both with incredible videos as we’ve come to expect from the Ed Banger camp. And most recently, he has released his new single ‘One Out Of Two’ – be sure to check out the video that drops this week!


There aren’t many young artists who are able to rouse the affections of Chris Brown, Flying Lotus, Just Blaze, Battles and The Weeknd – however that’s just the effect Hudson Mohawke’s neon-lit take on postmodern R&B has on people. The Glaswegian producer’s ascent has been swift and steady over the past few years. His Polyfolk Dance EP and full-length Butter has made fans not only out of wide eyed clubgoers, but also the kind of critical minds in the position to make grand statements. One such lofty statement called him “the new J Dilla” while placing him atop a new generation of producers including Mark Ronson and Jamie xx. On 2009’s Butter, HudMo took in a spectrum of influences ranging from Cybotron and Outkast to Aaliyah and Prince. With a steadily globetrotting schedule and overwhelming enthusiasm coming from all the right places we can’t wait to welcome him to our shores in 2013 for the Summadayze / Summafieldayze festivals


Starting out as a drummer at the ripe old age of 3, Abraham Orellana was 10 when he started playing around with the keyboard and producing his own music. It’s no surprise then that he’s had success working with Dipset members Cam’Ron, Duke Da God, Hell Rell, Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Cassidy, Gucci Man, Young Dro and Fabolous. With his rapid beat making techniques this guy is in high demand and it’s easy to see why, his live shows are off the hook “It’s something different and unique, it’s allowing other producers in the crowd to hear my sound and see what I’m doing”. With his feet firmly on the ground his talents continue to move him forward, “As long as the people keep liking my beats - that’s all that matters.”


Swedes are so good at producing universally adored pop music, and stunning singers Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo are no exception. “I Love It” is the debut single by femaleSwedish DJ and electro-pop duo Icona Pop. The track was released as a download in early May 2012 and quickly became THE summer anthem across Europe. In 2011 Icona Pop memorably collaborated with hip-hop heavyweight Chiddy Bang on their instantly loveable track “Mind Your Manners”. Only new on the scene, Icona Pop have already taken to the stages of some of Europe’s biggest festivals and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us when they hit Summadayze/Summafieldayze.


Originally from London, Scuba (aka Paul Rose) forged a name for himself in his hometown promoting, producing and playing jungle and techno before making the foray into Dubstep. In fact, his record label ‘Hotflush’ was born out of a successful club night he ran with some friends in Bristol whilst studying history. Wanting to get back in touch with his techno roots and move away from what was becoming a far too generic, lacklustre Dubstep scene in London, Scuba made the now standard move to Berlin. This is when things really started to take off. Soon after arriving, Scuba’s own distinctive production aesthetic started to get noticed. His infiltration was complete when landed a Friday night residency and his own quarterly SUB:SATNCE night at Berlin’s legendary techno temple, Berghain. Meanwhile, his Hotflush Recordings label has blossomed alongside him into a veritable juggernaut in underground music boasting such names as Joy Orbison and Mount Kimbie on its roster.


In just a few years, Vito De Luca, the Italian-Belgian producer behind Aeroplane, has established himself as party-starting DJ, remixer du jour -with his spacious cosmic-disco remakes of Grace Jones (William’s Blood), Friendly Fires (Paris) and Sebastien Tellier (Kilometer)- and, via his own keyboards riff-based melancholic beauties like Caramellas, or My Enemy, leader of the nu-disco and Balearica scene. Aeroplane’s debut album, We Can’t Fly, was an in-depth trip into the previously mentioned balearics with a big dose of AOR and Moroder-influenced disco, which was more a statement than an attempt to conquer dance floors, though the perfect remix cast did fill up for that job ( The Krays’s remix of Superstar, Breakbot’s remix of ” Without Lies ” or Rex The Dog remix of ” My Enemy ” ) Now that our appetites have been whetted by those brief, tantalising excursions, what delights await us for the long-haul flight? As a DJ, Aeroplane has never been at the mercy of traditional bpms, and being free of “the dancefloor pressure” has given Vito additional license to slow things down and look around, finding the perfect blend between club music, pop hooks, and spaced-out soundscapes. Making your ass shake more than your fist pump, as his first ” In Flight Entertainment ” 100% exclusive compilation demonstrates. The start of Vito’s own label Aeropop will see many collaborations with big names and a fresh, exciting, variety of music come out, allowing Vito to flex his classically trained musical muscles in all directions, just like his touring schedule.


A true innovator of house music, Jesse Rose is accountable for twisting the template of house as we know it. The Los Angeles based producer was born in London, and made a name for himself as a deep house-style DJ in Bristol. His blend of Chicago and Detroit house music lit up the local scene, which only led to grander heights for him. No other has worked the clubs around the world like Jesse Rose. He learnt his craft as a DJ with regular slots at London super club Fabric and a six-year residency at Berlin’s epic Panorama Bar. He is the founder of Front Room Recordings and Made To Play; and has re-moulded tracks by Hot Chip and Simian Mobile Disco. Jesse Rose has his first album as a solo artist in 2009, the notable What Do you Do if You Don’t?, which gave us the house anthems ‘Touch my Horn’ and ‘Forget My Name’. In 2012 Jesse Rose released ‘Fat Man’ an incredibly happy house track featuring a nod to 1920s flapper jazz that is impossible not to dance to. Aside from putting the finishing touches on his second solo studio album ‘Respect What You Don’t Expect!’, Jesse Rose also found time in 2012 to produce the title track for the debut Chiddy Bang album ‘Breakfast’.


Proudly defiant Danny Daze is a voice that stands out among the babble of DJs out there.
One of 2011’s breakout producers and DJs, the self-professed studio nerd has suddenly found himself in high demand by audiences across the globe. Signed to two of the biggest agencies in the nation, Daze has already caught the ear of magazines such as Rolling Stone, URB & UK’s Radio 1. “My way of producing is a bit chaotic. I put a million ideas onto one session then little by little start stripping back so it’s not too overloaded.” Daze has won several awards, including Best Club DJ 2009, and 944’s top ten ‘Masters of the Mix’. Modest about his achievements he’s apparently “still waiting for America’s best looking DJ Award”.


It’s been 10 years since this pair released the breakbeat phenomenon Tricka Technology and these two British acts are at it again, this time with an epic four deck show mixing the best of hip hop, funk and breaks. Martin Reeves, AKA ‘Krafty Kuts’ is undeniably one of the worlds greatest DJs, having played alongside the likes of The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim and The Rolling Stones. Alongside him, influential big beat artist A-Skillz, took home the ‘Best DJ’ accolade in early 2012 at London’s Breakspoll International Breakbeat Awards.

Whenever Krafty Kuts and A-skillz work together it produces tracks like the aptly named ‘Happiness’ and ‘Got the Rhythm’, can’t wait to see what they are going to bring to Summafieldayze.


AC Slater has quickly become one of the most sought after producers and remixers with no sign of slowing down any time soon! One of the most talked about and top blogged dance artists in the world right now, AC’s tracks can be frequently heard on radio stations worldwide. His debut single for the hugely influential Trouble and Bass label ‘Take You’ was received with massive acclaim and added more force to his already impressive reputation.
Most notably his remix of International hit ‘Show Me Love’ by the infamous Robyn S and his remix of underground classic ‘Turn Up The Music’ were voted one of Moby’s top 10 tracks of the decade! After collaborations with Drop The Lime, AC has just dropped the eagerly anticipated ‘Calm Down Trilogy EP’ – which is tearing through speakers round the world.
Hold on tight, this guy is set to seriously rip the dance floor.


2012 has been a monstrous year for the Stafford Brothers & Timmy Trumpet. Brothers Matt& Chris made the move to the USA, setting up camp in LA to work with some of the biggest names in the game. With a string of club hits smashing the Beatport charts apart and clocking hundreds of thousands of YouTube views, Stafford Brothers productions have attracted the attention of artists like Lil Wayne and have dished out remixes for Far East Movement, Flo-Rida, Wolfgang Gartner, Timbaland, Snoop Dogg & Akon to name a few.

Timmy Trumpet has fast become the most successful instrumentalist in the EDM scene both in Australia and overseas. Once an intricate addition to the DJ sets of many, Timmy has evolved over the years into an artist of unique originality. His single ‘Sassafras’ spent a total of 8 weeks at the #1 spot of the Aria Club Chart with his remake of the classic ‘Infinity’ following closely behind at #3. After just completing the 2012 Ministry of Sound Sessions Tour, Timmy Trumpet is undoubtedly the hottest merging talent living inAustralia.


Hailing from Perth, WA, Bombs Away are one of the hardest working local acts in the club scene today. The Bombs Away LIVE sound is Thomas Hart (Vocals/Synth) & Sketch (Guitar/Vocals/DJ). One of the few acts to hold down 5 concurrent places on the ARIA, iTunes, Djdownload, Djtunes, and Beatport charts concurrently, along with Swagger rocking National and Ministry of Sound radio, sitting at the 3rd most popular track of the current Ministry Album in iTunes Top 10. With 4 Decks & 2 Mics Bombs Away use anything at their disposal to get the crowd sweating, dropping lyrics, loops, samples, accapellas & synths over the fattest tracks & their own bootlegs & tunes!
