Friday 7th June: DJs (A-Z)
Bicep * Daniel Avery * Daphni * Motor City Drum Ensemble
Call Super * Job Jobse * Peach * Shanti Celeste
Having taken the world by storm in recent times, Bicep make their hugely anticipated Junction 2 debut on Friday 7th June. Known for their upfront, hard to identify, yet truly outstanding electronic music, their meteoric rise to the top will be fully illustrated in this headline performance. The Belfast boys will be joined by one of the figureheads of the UK’s modern techno movement, Daniel Avery, as well as Dan Snaith, who you might otherwise know as Caribou. He will be appearing at Junction 2 under his much loved, club music focussed moniker Daphni.
The magnificent Motor City Drum Ensemble will show Junction 2 why he is a force to be reckoned with, as will the breakthrough star of Houndstooth, Call Super. Stalwart of Amsterdam’s underground scene Job Jobse, Midland’s protégé Peach and Bristolian Shanti Celeste round off the first wave of Friday’s programme.
Saturday 8th June: DJs (A-Z)
Adam Beyer * Joseph Capriati * Maceo Plex * Richie Hawtin
Dax J * Etapp Kyle * Ida Engberg * Imogen
He might just be the most significant act we’ve ever booked. The great Richie Hawtin comes to Junction 2 in 2019 in a performance that will rank amongst the highlights of the summer. Richie will be joined by our ever-present ambassador Adam Beyer, coming off the back of his unforgettable B2B set with Carl Cox at J2 2018. Joseph Capriati returns to Junction 2 following a watershed year in which the Neapolitan DJ stepped up into the techno elite, whilst Maceo Plex also returns to deliver another emotive DJ set following his stand-out performances in 2017.
Saturday’s homage to techno inspired sounds continues via acclaimed producer and founder of Berlin based label Monnom Black Dax J, plus Klockworks prodigy Etapp Kyle. One half of techno’s power couple, Ida Enberg returns to Junction 2 in 2019, with young upstart Imogen completing Saturday’s lineup so far.
