Richie Hawtin, Helena Hauff, Derrick Carter and Andrew Weatherall come to Scotland's capital for the festival's biggest event yet
This Easter Bank Holiday, some of the world's best electronic artists will descend on Edinburgh's Royal Highland Centre for the biggest Bank Holiday party in the country. Terminal V's 'The Rising' promises 11-hours of dancing to top DJs like Richie Hawtin, Helena Hauff and Derrick Carter.
The massive party will welcome 10,000 people to the Royal Highland Centre's vast labyrinth of warehouse complexes which will hold five stages, including three new indoor and covered outdoor stages. The festival also boasts an immersive element to the experience and promises high tech lights and lasers, visuals and a giant speaker stack for supreme musical quality.
Topping the bill is minimalist techno guru Richie Hawtin who will play his first Edinburgh performance in over 18 years. Crowd favourite Patrick Topping will be playing a B2B set with Chicago's own Green Velvet and the legendary Derrick Carter takes headline duties at the Sneaky Pete's hosted Green House stage.
Late additions to the line-up are raw dub house maker Mr G, Berlin's Tama Sumo and innovative London producer Daniel Avery. Other big names include Andrew Weatherall, Helena Hauff, Nastia and Mall Grab. Helena Hauff will additionally host the official afterparty at Liquid Rooms alongside the likes of Kobosil, Chris Liebing, Maceo Plex, Mella Dee and more.
A special feature at this year's festival will be a stage fronted by the satirical electronic music news site Wunderground. Although their stage will feature the usual festival sets, it will also host a timetable of alternative Wunderground-style events such as 'world record attempts' and 'unusual talk shows'.
Terminal V was launched in 2017 by Simon McGrath and Derek Martin with its first party welcoming 2,500 people. Since then it has quadrupled in size and has added a Halloween edition of the event to its repertoire. Speaking about the final line-up and the event's success, Derek commented, 'The response so far has been amazing and we are now very pleased to announce the third wave of acts adding another dimension to the event and new stages. The festival has quadrupled in size in two years!'
Simon adds, 'We feel the complete line-up definitely covers all the bases we'd set out to achieve, introducing new stages has really given us the opportunity to book so many more great acts and add so much more depth to an already strong event.'
