Back once again for 2013 will be London party-starters The Playground with their annual two-day festival, taking place in the capital from the 7th-8th June.

This year, the festival will be held at the incredible 4500 capacity Brixton Academy, and host some of the biggest names in electronic music that has ever been.

Considered as one of electronic music¹s most forward thinking artists, SQUAREPUSHER headlines THE PLAYGROUND FESTIVAL Saturday night. Following the critically acclaimed release of ŒUfabulum¹ on Warp Records last year, SQUAREPUSHER¹S AV show is an audiovisual barrage of brutal rhythms and laser guided melodies wowing crowds worldwide from SONAR to L.A.¹s HARDFEST and the Roundhouse in Camden recently.

Featuring a giant synapse shorting LED display designed and programmed by himself SQUAREPUSHER has reasserted himself in the electronic music pantheon. It¹s an intense show that feels like nothing else you¹ll see this year.

Headlining the Friday leg of the festival, LEFTFIELD are unparalleled in their status as one of the UK¹s biggest electronic acts of all time. Their seminal debut album ŒLeftism¹ went platinum within a number of months of its 1995 release and earned a Mercury Music prize nomination later that year. The album is looked upon as a classic is regularly mentioned in music polls including Q Magazine that placed it 8th in their list of ŒThe Greatest Albums Of All Time¹.

Joining him for the Saturday line-up, GARY NUMAN is a man that needs little introduction. Since his groundbreaking work and named as one of the figureheads of the electronic movement in the late 70s and early 80s, Gary Numan has been a pioneer of forward-thinking electronic music and a living legend to the UK¹s musical history. Since the release of his breakthrough track ŒCars¹ in 1979, Numan has gone on to have a glittering career that still holds strong today. With every passing year, Gary Numan has kept true to himself by breaking barriers and creating diverse and interesting electronic music that wins him new fans every day.
