Bristol’s In:Motion reveals phase two lineups for 2018


Bristol’s In:Motion reveals phase two lineups for 2018

Following the initial tidal wave of announcements that heralded the return of In:Motion for 2018, Bristol's biggest club series now unveils a second round of incredible events primed to send shockwaves through the city this autumn and winter. Whether it's wrecking-ball D&B line ups, spellbinding house and techno or main stage megastars you're after, In:Motion has got you covered.

10 years since he landed at Motion for a riotous session for the Blowpop crew, we're thrilled to announce that Deadmau5 is finally coming back to Bristol. The masked producer has become a true titan of dance music in that time, riding a wave of notoriety from chart-topping collaborations to stadium-busting shows the world over. When he lands in Bristol, everyone's going to know about it.

It may feel like a long time since the peak of the summer, but Love International will be on hand with a star-studded selection of artists commonly found soundtracking their sun-soaked sessions on the Adriatic coast, including the likes of Moodymann, Todd Terje, Josey Rebelle and Joy Orbison. Meanwhile Crack Magazine will be returning for another of their unmissable Christmas parties, this year featuring Detroit techno legend Jeff Mills, disco and house maestro Motor City Drum Ensemble, Danish electro bossCourtesy, Umfang, Powder and many others.

There's plenty of space for respected selectors to take the dancefloor faithful on long and winding journeys through the deepest pockets of their musical tastes. Skream will be running through the full spectrum of his sound via his Open To Close session. Mr Scruff is of course famed for his all night sessions where serious diggers cuts and soulful classics collide, while Northern house upstart Patrick Topping shows how deep he can take the crowd during his own warm-up-to-wind-down set.

Jungle and drum & bass are embedded in the DNA of Bristol music, and that's no more apparent than on two of the gut-busting line-ups we're pleased to announce in this second wave. Chase & Status bring their new jungle inspired RTRN II Jungle tour to town, with the likes of Dillinja, Brockie & Det & Skibadee andSaxon Sound serving up lessons in the sound. Meanwhile, 1st December 2018 sees an almighty soundclash between RUN vs Playaz Recordings with DJ Hype at the helm, Dimension in the Marble Factory on his mammoth UK tour, and V Recordings with Bryan G in the Tunnel. Also watch out for bona fide supergroup SaSaSaS coming to town on Boxing Day bringing their NXT LVL tour alongside The Blast.

There's every shade of house and techno on offer, from London minimal house promoters FUSE making a welcome return with their hypnotic, heads-down sound indoors to Maceo Plex and his celebrated Mosaic event series, joined by Danny Daze both playing unmissable four hour sets. Meanwhile Claptone will be weaving his magic at the helm of The Masquerade, while Glitterbox welcomes Dimitri From Paris, The Shapeshifters and Melon Bomb for a more glamorous take on house music.

With all this on top of the first wave of announcements, this is shaping up to be In:Motion's biggest season yet.
