After Show Party - West Wing
John Kelly

If you′ve hung your dance boots up then it′s time to dust them off as John will be celebrating 20 years of house music. Blimey is it that long. A legend and one of our all time favourite DJ′s.

Assisting John will be local legend Matt Cooper who will bring his own brand of house music and live remixing.

After Show Party - Cocktail Bar
Late Night Tales

If there's one compilation series that stands above the crowd it's the 'Late Night Tales'. They've sold over a million albums helped by the acts they choose. Air, Groove Armada, Zero 7, Belle and Sebastian and even our very own Nouvelle Vague have created their own brand of evening adventure for this critically acclaimed collection. It seems only appropriate then, that we ask them to take on Dj-ing responsibilities in the lakeside, late night cocktail bar, with Nouvelle Vague and their resident Dj's. Enjoy.

11pm - 3am
 
Gary Numan
If there's one artist who helped define modern day electronic music, it would be Gary Numan. We all know him best for anthems such as "Are friends electric" and "Cars", but look further across his discography and you hear a broader output. He is still the "Godfather" of synthpop though and consequently he has never been more relevant, even if his numanoid army has now spawned little numanoids.

Ladytron
Ladytron
Ladytron make vintage electronic pop, helped by the analogue machines they use to create their sound. Although Liverpool based they have a worldwide cult audience and are releasing their 4th studio album 'Velocifero' in June. Acclaim is already heaping on it, including The Sunday Times hottest download for the first single, 'Ghosts'. We think they make the perfect start to the more full on evening entertainment...and their only UK festival performance.

Afternoon Acts
 
Morcheeba
When it comes to the melodic electronic genre, there's not many bands who do it better than Morcheeba... chill out music with a song behind it if you like. It's that beautiful blend of soul, folk and electronica that make them perfect for us all when we're lazing out on the lawn with our hampers. Whilst Massive Attack give you a 'lock yourself in your room' enjoyment, Morcheeba are simply meant for the outdoors. After 6 albums and over 6 million sales we are pleased they are headlining our daytime slot.

Nouvelle Vague
Nouvelle Vague
The only act in the world who can transform early 80s gritty new wave punk into honey coated acoustic arrangements. They choose only classics to resurrect so be ready to take a journey down one of the most exciting eras in popular music. Joy Division, The Clash and The Undertones all get Nouvelle Vague'd, but this time some of the unnecessary gloom in the music has been replaced with some necessary swoon. Ideal if you've started on the cocktails early.

The Egg
Always popular at The Big Chill and Glastonbury, but in our opinion never quite getting the commercial success they deserve. You may remember them from David Guetta V's The Egg, i.e the Citroen advert... you may not, but anyhow, we are very pleased to have them with us for the afternoon. Do have a listen to their last album 'Forwards' on the link to the right. It sounds like New Order if they made music on a cloud.

Pacific!
Sweden continues to supply us with quality laid back electronic pop. The most notable success of the last few years would be Jose Gonzalez. Well, hailing from the same town as Gonzalez comes a new act called Pacific. If we were to sum up their sound, we'd say it's a cross between Air and The Beach Boys. Now who could argue with that combination on a hot summer's day?
Their album Reveries is out now.

Nouvelle Vague
Eliza Doolittle
We truly believe we have found our perfect opening artist for the first ever Magic Loungeabout. She is called Eliza Doolittle and you will hear a lot more of her over the next year or so. She comes from the same forward thinking management team as Radiohead and Kate Nash too, writes her own songs as is only 19. Her music is a quirky blend of pop and soul with influences ranging from Burt Bacharach to Timberland. You will love her.
