Hijacked Festival adds Ms Dynamite & more
As we head into the final countdown to Saturday May 30th, electronic music, art and culture festival Hijacked Festival 2015 | Exeter has added even more music artists to the lineup, and announced an arts roster that really sets it apart from the crowd.
Joining Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Artwork, Congo Natty, Dark Sky, Disciples, Mak & Pasteman and more on the lineup are the almighty Ms Dynamite, house face Bok Bok and feel-good party duo The Menendez Brothers, among others.
Immerse yourself in Hijacked Festival’s themed areas – a full immersive aquarium, 1970s jungle, dramatic and playful main stage and hunting bar – that transform the beautiful grounds of Exeter’s historic Powderham Castle. Or soar high above the site in Hijacked Festival’s hot air balloon. Explore the artist mural series and sculptures, where artists from around the UK showcase their work. Hijacked hosts one of the South West’s biggest murals, theatre performers, dancers and fairground rides.
Unique techno-tinged DJ Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs plays a DJ set, and UK mainstay vocalist Ms Dynamite headline. Pioneering producer Artwork, Nightslugs’ own Bok Bok, and jungle forefather Congo Natty appear, plus critically acclaimed bass explorers Dark Sky and house party people Disciples join the party. Electronic selectors Eli & Fur take a dark turn, bass-house duo Mak & Pasteman bring it, and jungle invigorators Nanci and Phoebe keep it jumping.
Look out for Benedict Jackson, MC, DJ and producer Chunky, and Jabru, who promises to smash the ‘floor. House creative Last Magpie offers a genre-bashing set, party people The Menendez Brothers head, forward-thinker Madam X brings the bass, and disco-fueled duo MermaidS get involved, and there are so many more to check.

The picturesque grounds of Powderham Castle, the 600-year old home of the Earl and Countess of Devon, which stands in a beautiful deer park on the banks of the Exe estuary, plays host to the city’s second visit from Hijacked Festival – the nomadic electronic music and creativity-embracing experience that ‘hijacks’ idyllic city locations. An intimate daytime party in an iconic city location – a hijack – the first Hijacked Festival event was a triumph, selling out, and 2015 will be even bigger.
