    Switch celebrate their 7th year in the game with a massive line-up of both long-time legends and dynamic newcomers at Corsica Studios.

    We’re bringing back our first ever headliner, Bok Bok, a true pillar of UK dance music over the last decade. Best known as the founder of visionary label Night Slugs, Bok Bok has been one of the key figures in club music globally for over a decade. His sets bring together sounds from the full spectrum club music – including grime, footwork and funky, and drawing inspiration from the UK, Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore and South Africa.

    Head of all-girl DJ collective Boko! Boko! alongside Tash LC and Juba, Mina will be bringing her fast-paced blend of afrobeats, dancehall, UK funky and syncopated global beats to SWITCH. Having been co-signed by the likes of Branko, we’re super excited to hear what she has in store for us.

    Making waves across the world with his production for Bad Gyal, Florentino is set to tear up the dancefloor at our seventh birthday. Growing up between Bogota and Salford, Swing Ting affiliate Florentino champions a unique reggaeton-influenced sound, with sprinkles of soca and dancehall on a bed of UK soundsystem culture.

    Fresh from organising Dialled In Festival and No ID, a series of events celebrating the presence of South Asians in UK club culture, we’re thrilled to add Ahadadream to the line-up. As well as managing these ventures, the DJ and producer also heads his own label More Time Records. His forward-thinking DJ sets span genre, time, and space – with pulsating drums a regular feature.

    After the release of his recent EP with Tribal Brothers called The Link Up, we’ll also be joined by DJ Polo. The Bristol-based selector will be blessing us with his UK Funky sound. If you love percussion, this is not one to be missed.

    Head honcho of Femme Culture, a queer/femme music collective, Saint Ludo mixes and blends a range of genres – but hip hop is a mainstay in her sets. She’ll be bringing her high energy sound to make sure that our party is a real celebration.

    We’ll also be joined by Ayaya for her debut appearance at Corsica Studios. She blends funky and Afrohouse with RnB, house and garage – keeping things soulful along the way. Rounding off the night is Switch resident Tom Moon, playing his trademark sound of bassy, breaky techno.
