In three short years Shakedown has become firmly established as one of the UK’s premier dance music events. The 2013 line up is the strongest yet with hometown boys Rizzle Kicks headlining what is set to become a pivotal moment in their career and a huge moment for the festival. Festival goers can expect to party along to hits such as the brass-happy banger “Down With The Trumpets” and the cheeky, dance-craze-inspiring “Mama Do The Hump” as well as hearing tracks from their eagerly anticipated new album “Roaring 20’s”.
Also performing are urban pop superstar Labrinth, electronic aristocrat DJ Fresh who will be performing live, drum & bass overlord Nero and soul man Maverick Sabre. Bass music superstar Sub Focus will be laying down the beats in the Supercharged Arena alongside Radio 1’s new music legend Zane Lowe and a much anticipated 4 hour takeover from drum & bass dons RAM Records. With Radio 1’s Queen of Friday night Annie Mac, deep house guru Kerri Chandler, Toddla T Sound, MK and many more slaying audiences in the Audio Arena, Shakedown is set to finish the party season in serious style.
Shakedown is the final festival of the year and a last chance for electronic music lovers to party outdoors on the South Coast.

SD2 brings the UK’s biggest pop acts to the South Coast for a musical extravaganza.
Headlining SD2 are The Wanted, one of the biggest and best boy bands in the world. The Wanted have two huge albums, Battleground and The Wanted under their belts and a string of huge, hit singles such as All Time Low, Glad You Came, Heart Vacancy, Lose My Mind, Gold Forever and Lightning. The band have over 4 million fans on Facebook and their ferociously infectious tunes, rock solid friendship and laddish charms have stamped all over the typical boy band mould and brought a blast of much needed fresh air to British pop music. The Wanted have a new album out soon. Their set is guaranteed to be a euphoric affair and this is their only appearance in Sussex in 2013.
Since The Saturdays formed in 2007, the multi-platinum-selling band has become a household name in the UK. They’ve scored 11 Top 10 singles including signature hits like All Fired Up and Higher and three Top 10 albums Chasing Lights, Wordshaker and Headlines. Renowned for their energetic live performances, The Saturdays have sold out arena tours across the country and have become unavoidable on screens across the nation, not least as part of their own fly-on-the-wall TV shows The Saturdays 24/7 and What Goes On Tour. Add to this a loyal following of over 1 million fans on Facebook, over 3 million combined followers on Twitter and over 67 million video views on YouTube, and it’s clear that The Saturdays have become the UK’s foremost girl group. They will take the stage and Brighton by storm at SD2.
Brighton boy Conor Maynard will be a huge hit in front of a hometown crowd as he appears before huge pop acts The Wanted and The Saturdays. Conor rose to prominence with a series of cover versions on YouTube by artist such as Chris Brown, Taio Cruz, Rihanna and Ne-Yo. Ne-Yo loved Conor’s cover of his track Beautiful Monster so much that he contacted him and subsequently became his mentor. Likened to a UK Justin Bieber, Conor released his debut album Contrast which went straight to number 1 and spawned the hit singles Can’t Say No, Vegas Girl and Turn Around. This homecoming will be a huge occasion for his vast legions of fans and one of the pop moments of 2013.
Also appearing on the bill is the fresh, fierce and fabulous 18 year old A*M*E, one of the hottest names in pop right now having delivered the vocals on Duke Dumont’s UK number 1 hit single Need U (100%).
The Vamps acoustic driven guitar pop has marked them out as the newest boy band on the block and they have just supported McFly on a huge nationwide UK tour whilst Hobbie Stuart is another Brighton boy renowned for his covers of pop acts such as Katy Perry, Jessie J, Adele and Rihanna which generate hundreds of thousands of views on his YouTube channel. Hobbie is now uploading original material and has signed to Sony Music so expect to hear a lot of noise about this talented local in 2013.
With the biggest names in pop music heading to the seaside for an unforgettable day, SD2 is set to be one of the pop highlights of the summer.
A free bus back service back to Brighton or park and ride is available for SD2.
