Ben UFO, Mr Scruff and Joy Orbison will be going back-to-back

The line-up has been announced for the Barrio Loco 'district' of this year's Boomtown Fair, which takes place on the Matterley Estate (near Winchester) in Hampshire on 10-13 August.

Barrio Loco is the place to be at Boomtown if it's 4/4 beats you're after, and across the main Vamos and secondary Poco Loco stages they've got an impressive array of names to tempt you from across the house and techno spectrum and beyond. These include Ben UFO, Mr Scruff and Joy Orbison, who'll be teaming up for an epic 5.5-hour B2B session, as well as Carl Craig, Booka Shade, Dave Clarke, Dusky, Monki, Boys Noize, Solardo, Donae'o and AJ Tracey, while on a hip-hop tip Jurassic 5's Chali 2na will be playing a classics set alongside Krafty Kuts, no less.

Attractions elsewhere in Barrio Loco include 24-Hour Garage Girls, where among other delights you can find an old skool garage showcase with MC Kie and Sweet Female Attitude, while wandering around the festival as a whole you can also expect to encounter the likes of Aphrodite, Caspa, Deekline B2B Ed Solo, Dub Phizix & Strategy, Freestylers, S.P.Y, Ziggy Marley, Toots & The Maytals, Big Youth & U-Roy, Uncle Dugs, DJ Vadim, Gilles Peterson, Earl Zinger, Benjamin Zephaniah, Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer, The Prototypes, Dr Meaker, Shy FX, Toddla T, Arrested Development and, ooh, loads more.

If you like the sound of all that (and who wouldn't?) then adult weekend passes are still available, priced £202 inc BF. For full ticket details, click here, or for more on Boomtown itself see the festival website.
