Originally formed in 1963 by non other than reggae legend Bob Marley, The Wailers have had more members than the average group but they’ve also existed a lot longer too. Currently led by legendary bassist Aston 'Family Man' Barrett, with a back catalogue featuring the likes of ‘Stir it Up’ and ‘Get Up Stand Up’, we think they’ll go down a storm come sunset.
The Nasimi resident DJ, while sticking to his soul routes, spins a variety of music ranging from hip-hop to nu-jazz beats. Craig, who has opened for the likes of Stevie Wonder and Faithless, certainly knows a thing or two about lifting a large crowd.
The former Swedish House Mafia member has been DJing since the age of 12. In 2004 he burst on to the scene with a remix of the Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams’ and in 2008 he became part of the dance super group, which officially split in March this year – so basically he’s got pedigree.
The UK BBC Radio One DJ, who has his own show called Dance Anthems with Danny Howard, rose to fame through a competition organised by the station where he eventually went on to open the night at beach club Ushuaia in Ibiza in front of a crowd of 5,000 people. Following a competent performance he has was rewarded with his own show. Howard has also released an album, which went to number one in the iTunes dance music chart – not a bad effort.
Brothers Marko and Safe are regulars at Sandance and are purveyors of deep, Chicago-flavoured house. The duo have opened in the past for the likes of Armand Van Helden, Roger Sanchez and Basement Jaxx.
