It's Junction 2, but virtual

2020 Jun 03     
2 Bit Thugs

Starring Adam Beyer, Maceo Plex, Maya Jane Coles, Richie Hawtin and more

With the festival season pretty much cancelled for 2020, London techno fest Junction 2 are, like a lot of people, embracing live streaming, with their first virtual festival taking place this weekend (4pm-10pm UK time this Saturday, to be precise).

Obviously the proof of the pudding will be in the eating, but what they've got planned certainly sounds pretty exciting. J2V will take place in a specially constructed "3D digital environment" and feature three stages, which you can tune into either via the usual social media channels, or on the radio.

The line-ups and stage hosts are as follows:

The Console
Adam Beyer
Alan Fitzpatrick
Bart Skills
Joel Mull

Hosts: Drumcode, Relentless
Visuals: More Eyes, Fade In Fade Out

The Vault
Anastasia Kristensen
Daniel Avery
Maya Jane Coles
Richie Hawtin
Sama (recorded live at Junction 2, 2019)

Hosts: Asahi
Visuals: More Eyes, WeAreMidnight

The Hex
Maceo Plex
Âme (live)
Octo Octa B2B Eris Drew
Saoirse B2B Shanti Celeste

Hosts: Ion Festival, Vice
Visuals: More Eyes, BlinkinLab

There's no charge to tune in, but all profits from merchandise sales during the event will be shared between the charities Refuge, The Care Workers Charity, The Outside Project and Trussell Trust Foodbanks, and donations to those charities are welcomed.
