Tokyo World festival unveil their lineup for 2018

Tokyo World have just announced – without a doubt – their biggest lineup to date for this year’s festival on 22 and 23 September. 

The festival has been closing our summers for the past five years, growing bigger and better every year. Last year saw Tokyo World expand from one day to a full weekend and it did not disappoint. This year, Tokyo World will again take place over two days across five stages, and it’s hard to see how festival goers will be able to avoid major stage clashes with such a ridiculous calibre of artists at this year’s event.

While Tokyo World goers should most definitely come prepared to dance, this year sees the festival move a little further away from its dub-heavy, exclusively electronic beginnings, with more live bands dotted throughout the lineup, including headliners Sister Sledge, Morcheeba, Submotion Orchestra, Dreadzone and Laid Blak.

Tokyo World 2018 also seems to be the year of the MC, with US rap giant Action Bronson leading a pack of seriously talented UK rap artists including Lady Leshurr, Little Simz, Mike Skinner, Nadia Rose, Lethal Bizzle, Ocean Wisdom, Gardna, Jam Baxter and The Four Owls.

But of course sound system music will always be at the heart of Tokyo World and fans of drum and bass, jungle, dub, dubstep, grime and garage will be very well catered for. 

There isn’t a meh artist billed across any of the stage lineups, but a few highlights that should have you scrambling for a ticket include Digital Mystikz, Groove Armada, Dub Phizix & Strategy, Wilkinson, Artful Dodger, DJ Luck & MC Neat, General Levy, Bad Company UK, Calyx and Teebee, Culture Shock, Delta Heavy, Hybrid Minds, Icicle, Randall, Total Science B2B Breakage, Benny Page and Mungo’s Hi Fi.
