We're excited to be announcing the first wave of acts to grace Summer Saturnalia festival 2013. Initially a festival created by friends keeping the festival spirit on in a Yorkshire campsite, it's fourth year will see an impressive array of electronic music and arts come together for the 19th-21st July.
The producer and founder of Tectonic Recordings and the Subloaded/ Dubloaded nights will be treating Summer Saturnalia to a set to shake our sound systems and leave you weeping.
Associated with the secretive electronic explorations crew, We'll be hearing Akkords minimal techno and electro basslines in one of our favourite tents which is having a serious shake-up. We'll be introducing new partners to this tent shortly.
We'll be hearing big techno sounds from Atomic Jam resident Chris Finke. The producer, broadcaster and DJ will be gracing the stage and keeping your pulse raised. Here's a mix to get you started.
Elijah & Skilliam
A sound which Summer Saturnalia has never delved into before, A new tent will be bringing you the best of UK Bass, and underground electronic music. Elijah and Skilliam will be bringing you a BIG set, which may be something out of the normal for the pair..
Gantz is going to tear up the stage. Bringing you the bass phenomenon from Istanbul, we're expecting this tent to be swaying.
Summer Saturnalia is an event created and aimed at festival people. Musicians, industry insiders, fans and enthusiasts are all welcomed to enter the Summer Saturnalia bubble, where you're treated to intimate sets from heavyweight musicians, live art, walkabout acts and a digital arts extravaganza.

" A perfectly sized intimate festival in the Yorkshire hills built round good people, crew and most importantly quality electronic music. Quality"
