As the date for the inaugural XOOXITY festival creeps closer, Hilltop Live continues to add both a wide selection of musicians and artists to the already impressive line up.

Announced earlier this month, local artists Bittereinder and Sibot & Toyota with UK producer, DJ Fresh with Messy MC will now be joined by Spoek Mathambo, Yesterday’s Pupil, The Frown, Christian Tiger School, DJ Fresh (5FM) and Mr Sakitumi and the GRRRL and Haezer.

Veering away from the dark, serious side of the sound, Rusko brings a highly driven energy and fun approach to the dubstep massive, quickly coining his own take on the genre that infected millions around the world.  His sound appeals to many people outside of the dubstep world, as his productions are more adventurous in formula, sound and energy.

Making up the trio of headline internationals, one of the most exciting producer duo’s from the UK, multi award winning, platinum record selling producers, writers and musicians – Chase & Status.

Performing their DJ set at XOOXITY Pre-Party (1 May 2014) and at the main event in JHB (3 May 2014), fans of the drum and bass group can expect to hear the tracks that shot the group into playlists and festivals across the globe including – ‘Count on Me’, ‘Let You Go’, ‘ Lost & Found’ as well as ‘Duppy Man’, ‘Alive” and ‘Blk n Blu’.

XOOXITY is not an EDM festival.  XOOXITY is about the combining of the senses and experiences, through art, tech and music genres. Debuting at the XOOXITY Pre-Party on 1 May and heading to the main XOOXITY festival on 3 May will be Champions of the Sonarverse (COTS).  Brainchild of Cape Town DJ and producer – DJ Invizable, Champions of the Sonarverse is an epic superhero story set in Azania (a futuristic earth with only one continent – Africa) that revolves around music – where the weapons of choice for our hero’s and villians – musical instruments.  DJ Invizable is joined throughout the battle by Computer General (Dubmasta China – one of SA”s leading reggae MC’s), The Shadow (Andre Geldenhuys from Machineri), Admiral Anarchy (Maurice Paliaga from The Dirty Skirts), Sephooko (Eve Rakow from The Frown),  Hlaho (Lindiwe Suttle) and Inge Beckman.  This is NO LOVE STORY! Expect a fast pace, incredible and creative visuals performance with music, all with the theme of Africa as another planet in our galaxy.
