Circoloco has announced a wonderfully refreshing lineup for its London return. The show is packed full of rising talent and strikes a harmonious gender balance, something that has been missing on festival lineups over recent years. The Finsbury Park spectacle will feature some of the most journey-like artists on the scene.
Tickets for the event are some of the most sought-after on the calendar, with this comeback show being no exception. The announcement has certainly raised a few eyebrows with their chosen selectors for London, as some of their big hitters are missing.
Circoloco launched in the Ibiza underground hotbed DC10 back in 1999. The brand has evolved around names such as Jamie Jones, The Martinez Brothers and Seth Troxler, gaining international acclaim and building a cult-like following.
The Circoloco record label has had a big say in the new-look lineup as the music definition steps a little closer to their famed underground and wobbly sound.
Expect a masterclass in track selection from Eddie Richards and those wobbly frequencies from DJ Tennis and the hugely talented Nicholas Lutz. The show will be a wonderful education in sound, creativity and technicality.
There have been question marks around the £60 price tag for the event, but after an extremely tough couple of years for the hospitality sector, it represents a small cost in the grand scheme of things. Several UK festivals are priced similarly (you can expect to pay that entrance fee to see a couple of the artists commanding an ‘all night long’ show). It is a time to support our events industry.

The lineup represents a wonderfully refreshing and well thought out curation that offers a close alignment to the widely-adored Circoloco sound.
