The full line up is as follows.

This year Carl Craig is celebrating 20 Years of his Detroit imprint Planet-E and, for the first ever time, has taken the show on the road selling out clubs and festivals the world over. Alongside this, he has performed trio shows with Moritz Von Oswald and Francesco Tristano - including ADE and La Gaite Lyrique in Paris - but he's not stopping there. 2012 will be solely focused on his 69 live show, performing a selection of the finest 69 classic releases, infused with masks, darkness and 'retina popping' visuals to stimulate all senses. Planet-E is shortly to release vinyl compilation '20 Fucking Years Of Planet E - We Ain't Dead Yet' in an exclusive box set.
Friendly Fires' love of electronic music is well documented and the band are delighted to be curating this unique event alongside Carl Craig, who also continues the tradition of brilliant Friendly Fires remixes with his version of 'Show Me Lights', which will be debuted on the night. The band have just returned from a extensive tour of the USA, following show-stealing appearances at festivals across the globe. Now back in the UK for their November tour, their biggest to date, which will see the band performing to 36,000 people over thirteen nights, culminating in three consecutive nights at London's 5000 capacity Brixton Academy.
