The strongest-ever line-up of X-Bass stage will also increase the BPM from the 6th to the 9th of July this year. The stage will be headlined by genre legends State of Mind and Jade, but also today’s leading name in liquid drum’n’bass, Monrroe and the Austrian rising-star producer/DJ Youphoria, while powerful support will be provided by regional and local acts Bane, Bojah MC, Buzzin, C:Critz, Dozet, Drop Sensei, Drumsta, DSPT, Indukt, Kritik, Lysergic, Missin, Quantrussyan, Rebar, Shizzla, Slink, Souldrive, Statik, Tendo, Vetas and Zooter!

On the first evening of this year’s EXIT festival, Thursday, the 6th of July, Main Stage will be reserved for the most powerful underground electronic and bass sound! Electro-punk pioneers The Prodigy, drum’n’bass icons Chase and Status, and selector Charlie Tee are joined by British producer and DJ Gardna, who brings a fusion of dub and drum’n’bass. His 2019 debut album, “Good Time Not a Long Time,” perfectly illustrates his wide range, while last year’s “Time & Space” was met with critical acclaim, bringing him the title of Future Artist of the Month on BBC Radio 1

EXIT’s X-Bass stage, a hidden gem reserved for drum’n’bass fans, will welcome genre legends, the New Zealand duo State of Mind with a career spanning over two decades, five studio albums, Drum and Bass Arena Award for Best Album (Eat the Richfrom 2014) and three New Zealand Music Awards nominations. Joining them is Jade, a name that has been synonymous with neurofunk since the early 2000s, leaving a mark on major labels such as Moving Shadow and Black Sun Empire Recordings before founding his own EATBRAIN, while his tracks No Cure and Venom from the eponymous 2009 album are considered timeless genre classics.
