Win Tickets to Radio 1's Big Weekend Friday night club event!

Reported by Tristan Ingram on April 30, 2009

Heading the bill and a very special BP first is Radio One's godfather of dance, PETE TONG. Joining him will be much loved nu-wave pioneers, 2MANYDJs, making a very welcome return to the UK as they lift the lid on material from what is sure to be one of the standout new albums in 2009.

Electronic Folk Astronaut and dj genius EROL ALKAN heads up the rest of the line-up, taking to the main stage as part of an epic six hour Essential Mix with ANNIE MAC. She's returning to BP for the first time since her slamming midnight set at Motion on NYE. Long-time BlowPop favourites, the PLUMP DJS, are back in the UK after a string of massive dates in the States!. Expect a leg-churning brain-burning mash-up marathon. Support comes from BP Residents STEREO 8, REAL NICE and MISTER CRAIG. There is really no getting away from the fact that this is going to be very BIG!

Taking charge in room 2, will be Radio One's radical electronic queen, and long time Bristol sound supporter, MARY ANNE HOBBS. Followed up by one of the year's most exciting breakthrough artists and bloggers' favorite, FOAMO, whose tunes and remixes have been destroying floors across the land! Support in room 2 comes from BP residents STEVE REDUX, CLARK K**T and the SEASONFIVE, SHUDDER and TORQUE collectives.

Room 3 is hosted by the South's best dressed make-up crew BITCH 'N' STITCH who'll be applying quiffs and glitter to anyone brave enough to try. Sounds supplied by clubbing legends, CLUB DAVE / TEAM LOVE featuring EL HARVO, CHRISTOPHE AND PURE RESPECT with the original grandad of danger DJ DEREK and BlowPop's own vinyl hoarder, JOHN STAPLETON.

Decor and Visuals for the event by PUBLIC ENEMA. Sound supplied by DIRT SOUNDSYSTEM. Lighting by CHRIS RANDALL.

BlowPop at the Oasis Centre, Swindon.

Friday May 8th, 9pm - 5am.
