This summer the drum 'n' bass maestro BRIT Award nominee DJ Fresh brings his hits to Wollaton Park much to the delight of eager No Tomorrow festival-goers. DJ Fresh has collaborated with artists including Diplo, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Dizzee Rascal, Ella Eyre and more.
Also joining the bill is Kwabs, an artist who featured in the BBC Sound Of 2015 list and boasts 40 million YouTube views for his track 'Walk'. Swiftly signed to Atlantic Records, Kwabs is steadily making waves with his soulful take on R&B. The eagle-eyed among us may spot that No Tomorrow's next addition, Raleigh Ritchie, has also graced screens as Grey Worm in Game Of Thrones. In his musical guise Ritchie also adds a spin to R&B adding in tinges of rap that sees him touted as a one to watch this year.
Synths, beats and breaks come hard and heavy across the latest additions to No Tomorrow. Dubbed 'the undisputed queen of 2014' by Mixmag, Hannah Wants shows no signs of slowing down in 2015. Wants is part of BBC Radio 1's Residency and her bass heavy house is steadily tearing up dance floors across Europe, soon to include No Tomorrow. Local duo Shelter Point are also now confirmed and will offer up a downbeat and brooding take on all things electronic.
Black Butter Records have already contributed several acts to the No Tomorrow bill, now the festival welcomes yet more from the label in the form of energetic house whizz, Kidnap Kid and Bristolian rising star of the UK bass scene, Woz. Young DJ, Applebottom, aka Joe Arthur, may only have broken through two years ago but nationwide sell out shows are already a common sign in his touring schedule to which No Tomorrow has been added.
TCTS heads to No Tomorrow with glowing references; the DJ otherwise known as Sam O'Neil has seen support from heavyweights such as Annie Mac, MistaJam and more. Eclectic but anonymous duo 99 Souls and local boy, dollop and Stealth resident D'lex are also on hand behind the festival's decks. With a career spanning over 20 years DJ Zinc is a highly qualified addition to proceedings. Zinc's pirate radio and DJ shows have seen the Londoner tackle drum 'n' bass, break, house and much more.
UK bass artist Shoot The Ghost, Nottingham's boy/girl production duo Ursa Major and another Stealth regular, Strike, bolster what is fast becoming the dance and crossover line up of the summer. International flavours are to be brought to No Tomorrow by Toronto's multi-skilled filmmaker, drum 'n' bass DJ and producer Rene LaVice. DJs from local club nights Caramello, Afrowax and Bakery are the last but no means least from this current announcement.
This third wave of artists sit alongside headliners including John Newman and Jessie Ware, James Bay, Bondax, DJ EZ, Milky Chance, Gorgon City, Nick Mulvey, and SOAK.
Year two of No Tomorrow Festival offers a great deal more than just music across its two days. The Dance-Off stage sees the Dance-Off crew turn Wollaton Park into a body-shaking battleground as festivalgoers are invited to compete in a chance for glory or bitter defeat. The Bearded Kitten Games Arena promises interactive hi-jinks via Blindfold Boxing, Jelly Wrestling, Wobble Football and more. With a twisted take on the summer fete, Pineapple Circus Village Fayre present a mind-boggling array of happenings such as the 'Blind Cheese Taste Test' alongside synchro-pop-routines and a Best In Show fruit and veg competition. Car Boot Disco Bingo melds the game card with dance moves offering up chances for top prizes throughout the weekend, and of course in the age of social media what major event would be complete without the chance for a 'selfie' or two in the Festival Photo Booth.
Also new for this year No Tomorrow is opening its doors to those aged 16+. Previously the event was only accessible for those 18 and over, however this year people aged 16 and 17 years old are able to attend if accompanied by an adult (a maximum of four 16/17 year olds per 18+ person permitted).
