Putting on after-hours parties at DC10 in Ibiza, Circoloco built its name on a cutting edge music policy, the wildest crowd and a handful of incredibly talented residents. Bringing with them ARPIAR, the Romanian trio are sure to set the weekend up for this stage.

Sin City label is the brainchild of Dub scene leaders, Hatcha and N-Type, widely known as one of the best dubstep DJs on the scene. These two represent the original south London dubplate sound across the world, and they're bringing their arsenal of deadly basslines to the fortress.

Two years ago, Sinden & Switch decided on calling their bi-monthly residency at London's Fabric "Get Familiar". Soon, this anything-goes, eclectic club night became famous for it's great parties - from the booty popping sounds of Baltimore Club Music and Rio's Baile Funk to JA's upfront Dancehall riddims, hyperactive Hip Hop to House/Electro and everything that's good in-between. Get familiar with Sinden & Fake Blood.

This Paris based label is home to many of the world's most popular electronic music artists of the new generation and has become a symbol of the Nu Rave culture. Institubes are hitting HNS on Sunday with their very best. Boy-wonder Surkin; French hip-hop stars TTC's producer/DJ, Orgasmic; and the label's jem, the great upcoming producer Das Glow.

Main Stage; Arctic Monkeys, Lily Allen, Moby, Manic Street Preachers, Kraftwerk, Madness, Korn, Grandmaster Flash and Patti Smith and by no means least, The Prodigy! - who were voted the best band to have ever performed at EXIT on the festivals website, so it was only fitting to ask them back to rock the fortress once again.

Dance Arena; Carl Cox vs Green Velvet, Sasha vs John Digweed, Richie Hawtin vs Dubfire, Eric Prydz vs Adam Beyer, Sander Kleinenberg vs Darren Emerson, Steve Lawler vs Lee Burridge, Steve Angello vs Sebastian Ingrosso, Kissy Sell Out vs Alex Metric, Paul Woolford vs Yousef with more tasty collaborations to be announced!

If that wasn’t enough for the 10th Birthday Extravaganza there will be over 600 performances taking place on 25 stages connected by cobbled streets, ramparts and tunnels - a walk through the mystical fortress is like a trip through a magical wonderland.  Here you will discover everything from rock to rap, classical to chill, dance to drum & bass and electronic to experimental including; The Herbaliser, zZz and Buzzcocks on the Fusion stage and Buraka Som Sistema and Addictive TV on the Suba stage.
