After the emphatic success of its March instalment which saw stand out performances form Kevin Saunderson, MK, Kerri Chandler and Hot Since 82 amongst tonnes of others, Outbreak makes its return to Coventry's Rico Arena on October 31st, for another two full days of raving heaven.

Amongst the 100 headliners taking over six stages will be the likes of dynamic deep house two piece Gorgon City, bass music queen Hannah Wants, genre spanning man of the moment Kove, as well as Tough Love, Cause & Effect, and more, primed to supply some serious bass weight to the North Stage.

The South Stage goes for a more urban feel, with Sigma, David Rodigan and Ms Dynamite cranking up the tempos for some feel good drum n bass. Also check out for the stunning sounds of Phaeleh, the off kilter grime and house of Preditah and some chunky floor fillers from Kidnap Kid.

Iconic house imprint Defected bring Flashmob, Sonny Fodera, Cristoph and Andy Daniel into the equation, whilst G-House unit Cuff enlist Ryan Blyth, Stuff, Sion and Clouded Judgement for their stage.

The Saturday sees yet more greatness descend on Coventry, with the legendary Seth Troxler undertaking headline duties (check out his set above). The moustachioed maverick of house music will be joined by Skream, Hot Creations boss Lee Foss, Jackathon mastermind Heidi, Route 94, Secondcity and Patrick Topping (enjoy his live set from VIVa Warriors below) for an out-and-out killer bill filled with modern house music greats.

Things take a techno turn on the South Stage with Siberian techno heroine Nina Kraviz, Moon Harbour head honcho Matthias Tanzmann, Non Plus boss Boddika, and Paul Woolford amongst the hefty line up. 

Expect a junglist riot in the DJ SS Formation Arena thanks to Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Hazard, Matrix & Futurebound, The Prototypes, Grooverider, Kenny Ken and of course DJ SS

Those that land VIP tickets can also look forward to the Sidewinder UK Garage Arena with DJ Luck and MC Neat, Spoony from the Dreem Team, Artful Dodger and Oxide and Neutrino. With just about every style of dance music getting a solid representatives, Outbreak's latest Festival is looking like another overwhelming triumph. Get involved by grabbing your tickets here.
