Line-up: Major Lazer vs Annie Mac presents Magnetic Man vs Boy Better Know vs Channel One Soundsystem + Special Guests
After 30 years of representing the sounds of roots reggae, the formidable Channel One Soundsystem (Mikey Dread & Ras Kayleb) will head to Wembley with their strong spiritual ethos, all-vinyl & dubplate selection to retain their Red Bull Culture Clash title. Having worked with everyone from Wyclef Jean to Snoop Dogg, international reggae superstar Anthony B will be supporting Channel One live on stage. Genre-defying super-producer Diplo (M.I.A., Beyoncé, Usher) brings his rabble-rousing, festival-tested Major Lazer Soundsystem to take on the reigning champions. He will square up to a heavy line-up presented by Radio 1’s Annie Mac and led by dubstep’s original supergroup, Magnetic Man as well as special guests Rudimental, Disclosure, P Money and Ms Dynamite. Pioneering grime collective Boy Better Know complete the bill, flying the flag for North London with special guests Lethal Bizzle and Chip.
Radio 1Xtra’s Tim Westwood, who will be co-hosting the event alongside Gemma Cairney, is warming up for the ultimate party:
“This ain’t the same old same old. This ain’t your regular high street club. This is Wembley Arena with four soundsystems, one in each corner, tearing it down to find one soundsystem to claim the throne at the Red Bull Culture Clash.”
