The inaugural will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend in Liverpool. Hosted by local creative institution the Camp and Furnace, in the aspiring Baltic Triangle area, the festival was already feature packed, offering high class street grub and a variety of musical performances scheduled across the three rooms.

An update last month however makes a jaunt to Greenland Street significantly more enticing to the connoisseur of electronica. The line-up was fairly stacked with high calibre folk and band based entertainment and Mount Kimbie, post-dubstep purveying favourite of UK festivals for the last couple of summers. The MK boys are now to be joined by a handful of excellently selected dance inducers to take Summercamp revellers into the night.

On the Saturday night MK are followed by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and Raf Rundell performing as their acclaimed genre dodging ‘2 Bears’. Closing out the night is Glasgow born, now globetrotting party outfit ‘Optimo’. Djs Twitch and Jonnie Wilkes are known for their strict adherence to eclectism styles could range from sleazy funk to post punk, electro, 50′s swing and anything in-between. Expect the unexpected.

First to get synths whirring on Sunday evening is Delphic. The Northern four piece will be followed by one time producer and serial resident of some of the worlds most respected clubs Ewan Pearson. The second room will be occupied by local lads James Rand, Ryan Blakeley and Martin Kuchta. Their mutual appreciation of analogue gear brought them together in 2012. Highly informed and energetic laptopless beats will be the order of the day.

In succession to the iconic drum machines, samplers and synths and in stark contrast is laptop wielding wunderkind Nathan Fake. Part of the cult adored Border Community collective Nathan’s productions have consistently drawn admiration ever since his first release. Fake live is something to behold emotive, melodic and rich in detail.

There are many great parties scheduled for this Bank Holiday in the North West. Summercamp is without a doubt up there with the best of them.
