Back for its third year and with a plethora of artists ranging from veterans Fatboy Slim and Dizzee Rascal through to new, unsigned talent, Wild Life Festival 2017 returns with a bang courtesy of the Disclosure and Rudimental boys in their Brighton based venue – Interested? We thought you might be…

With headliners including Jess Glynne, Clean Banditand a plethora of promo videos to whet our appetite including a carnage filled line up release and a genius behind-the-scenes profile of Fatboy Slim’s training regime we can’t wait to get a piece of the action.

With 6 key stages circling all genres, this truly is the festival with something for everyone. Not only have the boys curated an outstanding selection of headliners, but this year sees Wild Life championing new voices via the Sounds of the Future; a stage promising to showcase an extensive mix of music from emerging talent.

After the infamous B2B Boiler Room with Armand Van Helden and Jackmaster in 2016, we cannot stress how much the thought of these two power houses being within the presence of one another excites us – and this truly could come to life at Wild Life 2017!

Not forgetting the dance collective, our shuffling friends are guaranteed to be kept happy with huge performances from Hannah Wants, Pete Tong and The Martinez Brothers. This alongside a ridiculous line up from WHP Presents including Dusky, Eric Prydz, Maya Jane Coles and an old favourite of ours, Mele – we genuinely believe that your biggest concern at this festival is going to be how will you choose to prioritise your time amongst the stages!

Shuffling not your thing? No problem, Wild Life has got you covered with performances from reggae legend David Rodigan, and disco connoisseurs Horse Meat Disco and Artwork. Plus, the Tropical stage promises to present a huge line up of key players from the London grime scene, with JME, Wiley, Giggs and AJ Tracey to name but a few – peppered with the Summer sounds of none other than UK Funky royalty Crazy Cousins (Bets on how long it will take to play Bongo Jam and One Dance please…)

As mentioned, paying homage to the old skool, a major headliner this year is none other than the Boy in the Corner himself, Dizzee Rascal. This juxtaposed with fire from one of the UK’s hottest acts to join the London Grime scene, Stormzy, alongside drinks provided by sponsors including Kopparberg and Desperardos - this is guaranteed to set some Brighton pulses raising.

And of course, not wanting to miss out on the action themselves – in classic Disclosure style the boys will be playing a B2B set with Armand van Helden – we just know when “You don’t know me” drops, the crowd are going to go WILD! (pun very much intended)

With a line up curated by two of the hottest DJ’s in the UK scene at a venue within ear shot of the sea, it’s safe to say this is not one to be missed.
