Fresh from their takeover of Friday's Wickerman Festival, Bitch are time and again proving that they know exactly what it takes to get you dancing in the green fields of Britain. Saturday 21st September sees the tireless party starters get stuck into Leeds' Mint Festival. Held in Lotherton Hall on the outskirts of the city, Mint Festival returns for 2013 after a hugely successful 2012. Featuring seven arena’s crammed with everything from jungle to dubstep, house to trance and techno to garage, some of the biggest names in their respective fields prepare to descend on the Yorkshire festival.
Bitch as ever have outdone themselves, letting all their years of experience shine through. Running events around the north of England since 2006, Bitch seem to gain more and more fans with each event. With a newly launched record label too, Bitch are set to takeover the world of house music.
Their arrival at Mint Festival sees them welcome none other than Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to headline the arena. Whilst electrifying audiences with powerhouse performances across the US, Europe, Asia South America and Australia, the Belgian duo have been pushing the boundaries of the live spectacle, showering the audiences with pounding beats, radical MCing and lots of champagne. Anyone who caught their stint at Tomorrowland will known what to expect from this duo.

Alongside their undeniable brilliance in the live setting, the two have been putting out their own material on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak records, Tiesto’s Musical Freedom, Angello’s Size, as well as their very own Smash The House imprint, cementing their importance in the new wave of stadium dance music.
They will be joined by another duo taking over the world of EDM - Nervo. The two Australian sisters have been taking the dance music world by storm of late, with a slew of releases including their collaboration with Afrojack and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike “The Way We See The World”.

The two have been in demand at festivals across the world, from starring at Ultra to opening up for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour, from Dream Valley in Brazil alongside Fatboy Slim to Electric Daisy Carnival, the hype around the two Aussie twins has seen their touring schedule become increasingly demanding. With Mim and Liv being responsible for penning tracks for Rachel Stevens, Ke$ha, Pussycat Dolls, Afrojack, Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears, Nervo have cemented themselves as one of the most talented duos in dance music.

The quality doesn’t end there either, with the likes of London based progressive house giants Third Party getting in on the action, Radio One and Ibiza favourite Danny Howard, stadium house maestro Kryder, the newly reformed and much loved duo of Andi Durrant & Nick Riley, Mixmag favourite D.O.D and Bitch’s go to jock Felix Leiter. The party is going to be immense at the Bitch Arena this year. We can barely contain ourselves!
