Found Festival has released this year’s line up which pays homage to world-class electronic music from all over.

The East London festival has sourced a variety of artists and DJ’s, collating the genre pioneers with the hottest up-and-comers on the circuit.

Speaking of pioneers, the main stage headliner has been revealed as one of the industry’s most respected figures: Damian Lazarus, the man who’s received a sitting ovation on the dancefloor; who bagged no 35 in Resident Advisor’s ‘Top 100 DJs’ poll last December and who has an unsurpassed feel for the depth of music. Lazarus is a headliner set to surprise.

Also appearing at this year’s Found is Cassy, who’s been delivering house and techno all over the world from Berlin to Paris. Radio 1 resident Heidi will be bringing her explosive sets to East London this June alongside the man who has quickly developed himself a world-class reputation, Ben Pearce who entered the scene in 2012 with his ‘What I Might Do’ debut.

Another main stage artist who’s well and truly earned his veteran title is DJ Sneak. After 30 years at the top of his game, the self-proclaimed ‘House Gangster’ is still continuing to redefine house music with a steady set of releases.

Also announced for Found’s main stage is the award-winning Noir; techno duo Dense and PikeEjecaJosh Butler and local boys Leftwing and Kody.

NoFitState explore the tension between house and techno with headline acts Magda and Anja Schneider. Meanwhile Francesca Lombardo joins the gap between the two genres with support from Geddes and Simon Baker and house music purist Darius Syrossian.

Love Fever’s BicepFrankie KnucklesMoodymannSan SodaCitizen and rising label residents Son of Sun and Visions will also feature at the festival.

This year, Found is offering a brand new VIP addition in which Krankbrother will present ‘The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’, which will include an afternoon of house music, festival food, cocktails and craft beer. Headlining the VIP bill is Matt Tolfrey with contributions from Jay ShepherdJack C and the Krankbrothers, who’ll round the day off with a special set featuring one of the main stage artists.

The festival will take place on Saturday 14 June from 11am-9pm with the location to be revealed later this month. Festival, VIP and after party tickets are now all available.
