Y:
Probably A.M.C to be very honest!

TF: What can attendees look forward to from your set at Rolling Meadows?
Y: A lot of hissing, high energy JUMPUP drum and bass.

MAMII:
The first time I played at Rolling Meadows, I’d just driven straight from a set at R&A after minimal sleep, got to the bone line & it was stinking hot. There were people everywhere laughing & dancing with mates. My set was mid-afternoon & it absolutely ripped, pure bass house heaven amongst the heat & next to the duckbrewe skate ramp which was so cool to watch. Was awesome to hand off to the Born On Road crew afterward. Can’t wait to play again this year on the main stage handing off to Ashez.

TF: Name some artists that you are looking forward to seeing at the music festival.
M: My friends from the Big Fresh Collective stage.
