The mighty NASS festival returns to Bath & West Showground next July – and they’ve just dropped some huge lineup announcements.
On Friday, Chase & Status headline with their phenomenal RTRN II Jungle project, which sees the groundbreaking duo exploring their roots with some heavy 90s jungle ragers.
Last year, British rap pioneers The Streets returned to the live stage for the first time in seven years, with new material and a select run of dates. However, NASS now gladly brings them to the South West to headline their huge Saturday night.
Sunday night’s headliner is still under wraps, but other exciting announcements include Ocean Wisdom, Mahalia, Jeremy Loops, Miraa May, Greentea Peng and Ms Banks.

It wouldn’t be NASS without a weighty drum and bass lineup, which is shaping up nicely so far, with acts confirmed far including the legendary Andy C, original nuttah Shy FX and a rare outing for Redlight’s Clipz alias; plus Crissy Criss, Macky Gee, Black Sun Empire, Benny L B2B Bladerunner, DJ Guv, Shadow Demon Coalition vs TNA and LTJ Bukem.

Bringing together the worlds of music, street art and BMX and skate athletics, NASS will span four days and 11 indoor and outdoor stages.
Beyond the music, NASS will once again host international skate and BMX competitions, with athletes competing from around the world. Local and international street artists will also be exhibiting their work across the festival site, including Chase & Status and The Streets murals from Bristol-based artists The Hass and Kin-Dose.
