After the rebirth of Escape last year, Wales’ biggest dance event returns with a massive line up. It mixes up house, bass and hard house with the best names in the game playing epic stages with cutting-edge production, light and sound. Escape Festival’s much loved DJs return to the line-up, guaranteed to bring their a-game, which has made Escape a vital and vibrant part of the rave scene over the last 27 years.
Its spiritual home is Singleton Park, a venue with great public transport links right by Swansea University. It is a lush green spot with acres of open space that comes alive with world class music, 10,000 happy music lovers and all manner of food traders, multiple well stocked bars and adrenaline pumping fairground rides.
This year the six stages have all niches covered by some of the best brands in the game. World renowned audio tech company Sennheiser host the bass stage with drum & bass don Sub Focus playing a DJ set with ID, plus more from Bru C, Dimension, Friction, Hazard, Harriet Jaxxon, Higgo, Silky and more. Notorious hard house crew Judegment then line up boss man and Radio 1 legend Judge Jules plus Ben Nicky, Eddie Halliwell, Lisa Lashes, Will Atkinson, Shugz and Billy Gillies.
The iconic Ibiza club Café Mambo brings the house with the influential Hannah Wants, New York pioneer Roger Sanchez, colourful party crew Horse Meat Disco, Lovely Laura & Ben Santiago, DJ Rae, This Culture, Ben Hemsley and more hard house comes on the Logic Xtra Hard stage with Audiofreq, Andy Whitby, Cally & Juice, Faze 2, Francesco Zeta, Matt OD and plenty more.

The line-up for the CYNT stage will come soon.
Mark Hopkins, Head of Festivals and Live Music at Escape Records added: “We cannot wait to be back where it all began with a monster line-up of hard house, bass and house talents from across the world. There are plenty of old favourites as well as red hot new names which mean this one is going to be more special than ever.”
