51st State Announce Line-up: With MAW, Dimitri From Paris, Evelyn “Champagne” King & Derrick Carter

House | Monday 20th March 2017 |

Following two sold out runs since its debut in 2015, 51st State Festival is set to return to London’s Trent Park on 5th August with an unrivalled line-up celebrating the intricate and uplifting roots of house music.

Bringing together the sounds of US house, garage, soul, disco and the Caribbean, this year’s line-up will be headed up by the undisputed kings of house, Masters At Work, who will be pushing the main stage to its limits as they lay down a dance music masterclass.

Joining the ranks is the inimitable Dimitri from Paris, who will be bringing his distinct fusion of house, disco and soul to ignite the main stagewhile Backto95 host Battle and Back Up hitmaker Wookie will be spinning a history of UKG. Elsewhere, new stage hosts FOUND will be bringing down the Chicago house with the legendary Derrick Carter.

The electric line-up continues on the We Love Soul stage, where the long-reigning queen of disco, Evelyn “Champagne” King, will demonstrate why she deserves her crown. If this wasn’t enough for what is shaping up to be one of the most pivotal events for dance fans across the globe, Grammy Award winning gospel icon BeBe Winans, Moon Harbour label boss and tech house titan Matthias Tanzmann, rare groove pioneer Norman Jay MBE, and falsetto pro Byron Stingily will also be bringing their own visionary sounds to this guaranteed sell-out.

The 51st State team have pooled all their experience over the past couple of years to fine-tune the production and ensure the smoothest running festival possible.

This year will feature sharper sound systems, state of the art production and an improved VIP experience. Stage hosts include Backto95Channel One Sound SystemFOUNDGroove Odyssey and We Love Soul. With tickets already on fourth release, 2017 is set to lay its own milestone in the annals of dance music history.
