Hospitality’s reputation precedes it – that’s why it rarely fails to sell out whenever it comes to Birmingham. Talented techstep triumvirate Noisia are the night’s headliners, neurofunk innovators from the Netherlands whose sonic craftsmanship is revered across the electronic music spectrum. Their barbed, nitrous-fuelled bombs always have an incendiary effect on the dance floor whenever they’re dropped – Noisia know how to work a crowd up into a frenzy. If you’ve stepped into the rave at all in the past few years, no doubt you’ll have heard their collab tune with the Upbeats, ‘Outer Limits’, a blistering track that fuses breakbeats and backbeats together at hypersonic speed. Noisia are joined by Metrik, London Elektricity, Etherwood, and more. This one’s not for the fainthearted.
