elrow has announced the line up for its huge, outdoor, 2-day festival spectacular to take place at Sandwell Valley Country Park on the outskirts of Birmingham on 25th and 26th September. The world’s craziest party brings a theme of Nowmads New World as it puts on its biggest ever Midlands event and has delivered a massive line up to match.

Saturday headliner is Joris Voorn, with Detlef B2B Latmun, Eli Brown, Marc Maya and Toni Varga, while Sunday headliner is Groove Armada (DJ set), with Franky Rizardo, Alisha, Hott Like Detroit, Marc Maya and Toni Varga.

Added to this is a host of incredible local talent on the Mr Whompy Stage. Alongside elrow‘s infamous mix of colourful clubbing, surreal theatre and incredible production, a soundtrack of the finest house music delivered by some of the scene’s biggest names is guaranteed, all set in one of the Midland’s best outdoor spaces. Fifteen thousand party people will make up for lost time with a lost weekend of immersive mayhem and entertainment at the elrow fiesta.

Elrow began as a small after hours Sunday party in Spain and had grown into one of the world’s most recognized clubbing brands, transforming any space into a magical wonderland of music and madness. There are few better outdoor spaces for elrow to work with than Sandwell Valley Country Park, just 7 miles from central Birmingham with quick and easy travel connections, set in 660 acres of stunning scenery. Guests will step into a parallel Nowmads New World of past, present and future all mixed into one wild, never-ending party.

Saturday headliner on the main stage is Joris Voorn. The influential house and techno DJ, producer and record label owner is a regular in the world’s best clubs as well as massive festivals across the globe including Awakenings, Electric Zoo, BPM, Parklife, Hideout, Movement and many more. The Dutch maestro never misses and the elrow masses can expect something special when he takes to the decks.

Also stepping up is Detlef back to back with Latmun. With releases on Hot Creations, Repopulate Mars, Moon Harbour and more, he knows how to create a groove, in the studio and behind the turntables. Latmun has mirrored his close friend with big releases on the same labels and lining up back to back to drop the tunes these two talents have proven time and again they know how to bring the house down with their tune selection.

Eli Brown is one of the hottest rising star in house music recently linking up with Calvin Harris‘ alter-ego, Love Regenerator, to deliver some serious dancefloor weapons. He’ll be bringing everything in the record box to elrow.

Lining up on both Saturday and Sunday are elrow resident superstars, Marc Maya and Toni Varga. Trusted by elrow to deliver the perfect soundtrack for their immersive worlds, the quality tunes will keep on coming.

Sunday headliners on the main stage are the legendary Groove Armada. Respected producers with multiple hits under their belt – including 3 top 10 albums and 3 Grammy nominations – Tom and Andy are also DJs who know how to get the biggest crowds jumping. Get ready for confetti.

elrow favourite Franky Rizardo just keeps getting bigger. The Dutch wizard has released on Rejected, Defected and of course his own LTF Records to great acclaim and big support from BBC Radio 1 among many others. Franky knows what the elrow crowds want and won’t disappoint.

The Warehouse Project‘s new resident, Alisha, is a serious up and coming talent. Always ready to prove her skills, Alisha will tear up Sandwell Valley with her bumping underground house grooves.

Also stepping up are house and techno duo Hott Like Detroit, ready to drop their twisted basslines and techy beats. Hailing from Birmingham and Bolton, the guys have taken up residency at Beatport’s no.1 spot with recent releases and they’ll be turning up the heat at elrow.

The Whompy Stage is hosted by Levels on Saturday and Wyld on Sunday with a big selection of talent throughout including local legends such as Paradox City and Tom Shorterz.

Guests who have been waiting for the chance to step into the elrow world will not be disappointed. Surreal adventures await for the party people of the Midlands as they enjoy the elrow mix of music, madness and magic.
