The Playground Festival 2013, Brixton Academy, 7th-8th June

The increasingly hyped Playground Festival has stepped up its game once again earlier this week with the announcement that Warp Records’ electronic virtuoso, Squarepusher, will be joining the bill on the Saturday alongside 80s legend Gary Numan, Pantha du Prince, as well as two members of the Detroit legendary ‘Belleville Three’ Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson.

Held in the O2 Brixton Academy on the 7th and 8th of June, the festival is expecting nearly 10,000 to pass through its doors over the weekend and is shaping up to be a huge event on the summer calendar. As well as an acclaimed LIVE AV show from Squarepusher, with extensive audiovisual displays designed by the man himself, The Playground has also announced performances from French electro house producer, Vitalic (LIVE), as well as Cassius and Ryan Hemsworth.
