The atmosphere on The Hive Stage at Townlands Carnival will be buzzing as the bulk of TLC18’s dance line-up converges here for three nights of beats from across the spectrum.

A Ghetto Funk takeover sees Stanton Warriors’ irresistible and inimitable sound come to the party, via legendary performances at East London warehouses, Miami boat parties and illegal Detroit raves, to the stages of Coachella, Glastonbury, Burning Man and Ultra, selling out global tours along the way.

Joining them on this fantastic melting pot of a stage are Brighton scratch DJ, JFB, the home-grown funk, glitch and electro beats of WBBL, the mighty Ghetto Funk Allstars, UK rave legends Altern 8, Free Radikal and Vinyl Below. Completing a electrifying three days at The Hive are Deep Blue, DJ Red, I Kodu, Stephen Murphy, Hot Lady, Paul Daly, Ingo Nintemann, Shiv, Kyle Mehan and Mark Da Funk. Meanwhile, latest recruits to The Hive, the UK duo Icarus have been described by Radio 1’s Annie Mac as “fast becoming the masters of emotive dance music”.
