You just know the Electronic Stage is going to be heaving. Starting the day with some tunes to get ya moving, progress to a solid diet of bangers then get a bit dirty and definitely heavy. The lineup is guaranteed to kill it from start to finish and this year we have changed up the stage so there's more outside room to chill if ya need some fresh air.
