For former WGC man and Monks Walk schoolboy, now anonymous dubstep and drum and bass sensation Jaguar Skills, and fellow dubstepper Flux Pavilion will be performing at the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), in London on July 20.

Masked musician Jaguar Skills told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “I’m extremely happy to have been asked to DJ at EDC, especially since I’m the first ninja from Welwyn Garden City to do so!

“Have no fear, I will represent Welwyn Garden City to the fullest!”

Flux Pavilion is a former University of Hertfordshire student and filmed the video for his hit Example collaboration ‘Daydreamer’ at the Hatfield-based site last year.


Also on the stellar international line-up is Dutch progressive and electro house DJ Hardwell and urban star MistaJam.

Hardwell said: ““Wow, what is there to say about EDC that the world doesn’t already know?

“[It is] a true action blockbuster of a festival.

“Being invited to play the first ever EDC in the UK is a real honour. I’ve played in the UK many times and each time the energy there has been insane, mix into that the jaw dropping production and setup of EDC and make no mistake this will be one of the go-to festivals of the year.”

And Nottingham-based MistaJam, real name Pete Dalton, added: “Having seen how EDC in the USA has revolutionised the way our American cousins look at music festivals, I’m over the moon that not only will I be playing at the inaugural UK EDC but also that I get to bring my own Speakerbox stage to proceedings.

“As Speakerbox, and myself, are all about quality music regardless of genre, the line-up that I’ve worked hard with the EDC team to put together really reflects this and will be the icing on a very busy UK festival cake for me.”

The roaming festival recently left Las Vegas and is at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on July 20.
