There Junction 2 stage splits are here. J2 have confirmed the final three additions playing at Boston Manor Park on 9th June, and how they will be dispersed.
It was always important for us to showcase the top-tier of UK talent at the capital’s premier techno festival. On her credentials as a multi-creative disciplinarian and being the essential London producer of a generation, Maya Jane Coles is invited on merit.
She joins a crop of international talent at The Hex stage. Arguably the expansive outdoor arena has highest density of star power on the day. MJC lines-up next to Nina Kraviz, Tale Of Us and Mind Against. As we have boasted in the past – at any other festival, this could easily be considered the main stage.
Enrico Sangiuliano is one of a raft of exciting new talent Drumcode broke in the past 24-months. Following in the footsteps of a rich Italian lineage, his productions are known for containing his trademark kick! In fact, it was his monolithic Astral Projection which was the defining track of last year’s festival. It should therefore come as no surprise that Enrico joins Adam Beyer on the Drumcode-hosted Bridge stage in 2018.
Swede La Fleur completes the line-up on the main stage. Having recently released on Drumcode’s sister label, Truesoul, La Fleur will be given the honour of opening proceedings. Already a resident at Berlin institution Watergate, we’re certain that her time as an unknown quantity in the UK is almost over.
The Bridge is our piece de resistance. As the M4 motorway roars above, below, dust is kicked-up, feet stomp and sound levels can peak way beyond the normal limitations of a UK festival. It’s a full-blown Mad Max rave!

So there we have it! The Junction 2 stage splits in full. Where will you be spending most of you time at?
Maybe on an island under the M4 flyover? Surrounded by water with your arms in air.
Maybe lapping-up the rays at the Sonus stage? Alfresco dancing at it’s finest. Or sheltering from the sun inside the dark Warehouse? Eyes-closed as the beat hits.
Or maybe under the fairy lights as night falls? Woodland creatures coming-out to play.
Bookmark our official Junction 2 playlist. We’ll be updating it weekly in the run-up to the festival:
For 2018’s third edition we’ve broadened our horizons and cast our net across a larger, more diverse selection of artists. DJs and live acts. Veterans and newcomers. Rare appearances and fantasy B2Bs. Brothers, sisters and strangers who’ll turn into friends. And your next favourite DJ you’ve not heard of yet! Touching on all sub-genres of electronic music from leftfield house to deep tech, downtempo electronica to IDM – but always under the umbrella of techno.
23 artists and five bespoke stages, each uniquely assimilated into the features of Boston Manor Park. From manmade concrete structures, to areas of outstanding natural beauty. Bigger, bolder and more elaborate than the previous two years, without wandering far from our modus operandi: cutting-edge production, crystal-clear sound, industry-leading organisation and extended set-times at an awe-inspiring setting. This is Junction 2 2018.
