Basement Jaxx (DJ set)
Red alert, red alert it’s a catastrophe, but don’t worry, don’t panic, Saturday night at Camp Bestival has always gone off with a bang but this year will be extra special as we hand over controls of the Big Top to Brixton dance legends Basement Jaxx to lead us to a suitably spectacular crescendo. Felix and Simon have been in the game for twenty years now rising from the underground house scene through their own club nights Basement Jaxx and Rooty. In 1999 the boys took the leap from underground to mainstream success when ‘Red Alert’ the first single from their debut album ‘Remedy’ smashed into the top five of the UK charts and the album became an instant classic. Never ones to rest on their laurels Basement Jaxx quickly became an unstoppable live proposition as their Latin influenced vibes became an epic onstage extravaganza worthy of the streets of Rio at Carnival time, so who better to take over the ones and twos in the Big Top for what promises to be a masterclass in how to rock a party.
