Details

Swindon Invincible is on the move! Following three years of selling out its original home at the Old Town Bowl, This year will see Wiltshire’s premier one-dayer moving to the historic Lydiard Park for Swindon’s
ultimate dance music festival

And, in keeping with moving on to bigger
things, this year’s line-up takes it to the next level with some true heavyweights coming on-board. Having
captured the heart of people from across the country, Invincible is consistently raved about by the acts
that come to play there and its fourth year Invincible will be building on what they have created, upping the
ante with three stages, more entertainment, visual shows, and top artists performing to an up for it crowd
of 5000 party people.

Leftfield, one of the biggest bands to emerge from the nascent rave scene, continue a very welcome
comeback with a headline set at Invincible. From the era-defining debut album ‘Leftism’ that regular
tops ‘Best Dance Album’ polls and its lauded follow up ‘Rhythm and Stealth’, Leftfield’s sub-bass propelled
floor-fillers laid the blueprint for what dance music could be, influencing countless acts over the years.
With a band featuring the majority of the original touring line-up, Leftfield’s live set is pure hands in the air
heaven and not to be missed.

Also joining the line-up for Invincible’s inaugural Lydiard Park outing is James Zabiela. Renowned for
his super-dexterous turntable skills, James is one of the most technically gifted DJs around with sets that
span the techier end of House adding in a generous helping of Techno and Breaks to keep the crowd
rocking. Featuring The Scratch Perverts’ Plus One and Mixologists’ Beni G, Jack Beats will be turning
up the rave heat with wobbling basslines, crowd destroying breakdowns and speaker smashing cut and
paste action to keep your feet moving. Krafty Kuts will be on hand with his jaw-dropping crabbing and
flaring firing up his hip-hop fuelled mix of Breaks and Electro. A perennial winner of Best DJ at Breakspoll,
Krafty is a master at the art of partying. Acid Jazz legends Brand New Heavies are set to take Invincible
by storm. Fronted once again by N’Dea Davenport, backed by the band’s musical powerhouse of Jan
Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Leavy, Brand New Heavies’ soul-powered Funk is as infectious
as it is energetic and their full-throttle delivery is sure to get the crowd jumping. Described as 'Nufunk's
very own Mr Midas', Featurecast has proved himself a leader in his field. From DJing to Producing, he's
had an incredible few years, churning out some of the biggest party tracks and bootlegs on labels like
Good Groove, Bomb Strikes, Jalapeno, Catskills & Funk Weapons. Receiving praise from a host of major
players such as Krafty Kuts, Norman Jay, DJ Yoda, Z-Trip, & A.Skillz describing him as ‘One to Watch’,
Featurecast has crafted his own unique sound combining amazing pinpoint scratching whilst effortlessly
cutting between Funk, Hip-Hop, Breaks, Dubstep and Drum & Bass.

As well as expanding into a new home, Invincible will also have a brand new arena, hosted by The Valve
Sound System, appearing an outdoor UK festival for the first time in over 8 years Valve has cemented
itself as true pioneers of their field. Veterans of the Drum&Bass scene have all identified the mighty Valve
Sound System in all it is glory as the best sound system to play on bar none. As Ed Rush put it - "no one
else does bass better", so Invincible are thrilled to have teamed up with Valve to bring you the brand new
Valve Sound System Arena...watch this space for full line up and news of the Band Stand Stage!
