MAD DECENT/OWSLA/HOT CREATIONS at the Red Bull Guest House
Parties at the Red Bull Guest House are fast becoming legendary and the line-up is there to match. On Thursday Hot Creations bosses Jamie Jones and Lee Foss will take over the decks after performances from Greg Pidock, Anabel Englund and special guests Art Department. Friday will see Skrillex and his OWSLA crew (Jack Beats, Kill the Noise, What So Not and more) indulge the bass lovers – expect plenty of new tracks from his newly released debut album, Recess. Saturday brings what could be the highlight of the line-up as Diplo and his Mad Decent artists occupy the desks, with Zeds Dead, Yellow Claw, Mr. Carmack, Djemba Djemba and The Partysquad all featuring. There’ll also be a special B2B DJ set, would it be greedy to ask for a performance from new due Jack U (Diplo and Skrillex) ahead of their Sunday night Ultra set as well?
