Alongside a huge broadcasting career on radio with an imensely popular regular show on one of the biggest radio stations in the UK.
Since 2002 Craig has been one of the UK's most beloved funk & soul DJs smashing dancefloors world wide, playing at legendary festivals such as Glastonbury (UK), Horizon (Bulgaria), Soundwave (Croatia) and countless more.
This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this global icon in action and we are beyond honored to have secured him for his first ever DJ performance in Adelaide!
ED SOLO is the producer’s producer, an expert studio guru whose sublime engineering skills are equalled only by his nack for a booty-bouncing hook and an ability to throw down on the turntables. When it comes to pouring on the bass frequencies, Ed’s skills are unrivalled, whether the tune in question be a killer dubstep cut, an upfront slice of drum ‘n’ bass, a booming booty house number or a funky, electro-fuelled breaks 12″.
With nearly two decades of releases under his belt with collaborations with artists such as Fatboy Slim, Roots Manuva, Shy FX, Deekline, JFB & Brockie and performing at some of the most prestigious festivals on the planet such as Glastonbury, Shambala, Boomtown & Rainbow Serpent this set is guaranteed to be a scorcher.
"Quite frankly – if you want your crowd to go mental, if you want a hook so massive it could land a blue whale and if you want your basslines dripping with warmth and menace in spectacularly equal measure – then Ed Solo is ya man" - LSD Magazine
[DUNKELBUNT] are without doubt one of the biggest electro swing bands on the planet, fusing together pianos, trumpets, clarinets, drums, saxaphone & a beautiful vocalist to create some of the most well known tracks in electroswing history such as Cinnamon Girl and The Chocolate Butterfly.
Having played all around the world including New York, Toronto, Honolulu, Berlin, Warsaw, Oslo, Stockholm, Istanbul, Paris, Luxemburg & countless others at festivals such as Exit (Serbia), Boomtown (UK), Fusion (Germany) and Zorba (Israel) we are very privaledged to have secured them to finally add Adelaide to that list.
SLAMBOREE is the DJ incarnation of the Pyro-Circus Dub Rave Massive; with a fearsome reputation of bringing heavyweight bass to festivals and clubs across the world. The DJ & vocal duo (Freear & Kathika Rabbit) perform a full-throttle dance explosion featuring an eclectic genre-busting mashup of styles! The Slamboree Soundsystem show is undoubtedly one of the most unique on the circuit.
Slamboree won Best Live Act at the Breakspoll International Breakbeat awards, Deekline’s remix of their track Cheeky Peepers won Best Remix, Freear won Best Free Track and was nominated for Best Breakthrough DJ.
"A mash up of Basement Jaxx and The Rocky Horror Show performing at the Moulin Rouge, Slamboree is the type of music act you need to see to believe" - Gigwise Review
THE CHICKEN BROTHERS are more than your average musical experience - these two DJ/Producers are more animated than the entire Disney Pixar back catalogue!
Serving up the best mechanically recovered beats in a free range-remix sauce, with a healthy dollop of turntable trickery and organic interactions, the feathered brethren have developed a gastronomic following with an all-you-can-eat offer on food related puns.
This feathered duo have taken their unique brand of party music to UK festivals Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown, Shambala, Glade, Beatherder, Bestival, Festival Number 6, Kendal Calling, Noisily, Knockengorroch, Swingamajig, Shindig and the Edinburgh Fringe plus international gigs in Italy, Spain and Australia - keep an eye as these chooks can fly!

Starting off the night in style with an eccentric mix of glitch, electro swing, ghetto funk and whatever else they feel like pulling out of the bag, all four of these acts never fail to impress and are regulars every week at events in Adelaide and interstate.
