Belsonic 2012

Skrillex
Skrillex exploded onto the UK music scene in early 2011 with the crossover EPs Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites and Bangarang, both of which captivated Dance and Rock fans alike. He was named the 2011 MTV Electronic Dance Music artist of the year (ahead of massive DJs like Deadmau5 and David Guetta), and was one of the BBC Sound of 2012 poll nominees. Despite the lack of a full debut LP, Skrillex is now selling out arena sized venues across the globe, and is renowned for his hugely innovative concert productions.

Madness
Seminal 2Tone / Ska 7 piece Madness are one the most successful British acts of all time. Their 1979 debut LP One Step Beyond is considered a classic album, and was a key release during the late 70s Ska Revival centred in London. Subsequent hit single releases include House Of Fun, Baggy Trousers, It Music Be Love and Our House, along with 6 UK Top 10 LPs.

Madness continue to perform live with the core line-up which founded the band over 30 years ago, including cult front-man Graham "Suggs" McPherson. A brand new studio LP is expected later this year, following up the highly successful 2009 release The Liberty Of Norton Folgate.

Two Door Cinema Club
Not since Snow Patrol can Northern Ireland boast a bigger success story in music than Two Door Cinema Club. Natives of Bangor town, this indie-rock three piece released their hugely successful debut LP Tourist History on French imprint Kitsune Maison in 2010, and have gone on to build huge fan bases in every corner of the globe. The Choice Music Prize winning LP spawned hit singles Something Good Can Work, What You Know and I Can Talk. The band are currently touring the UK, headlining the highly prestigious NME Awards Tour, while work is underway on their eagerly anticipated sophomore LP release.

Tom Jones
Tom Jones' 46-year career has remarkably gone from strength to strength. Along with sustaining his popularity as a live performer and recording artist for more than four decades, he has garnered--at the age of 71--the best reviews of his career for his recent album, Praise & Blame (Island/Universal). Critics across the world are unanimous in their approval and admiration for both the recorded work and the performance of it in concert.

James Morrison
James Morrison' incredible third album The Awakening has just been released on Island Records. The album, his first for the label, was produced by Bernard Butler and was recorded at Konk studios in London. It follows the huge global success of James' previous two albums which, together, have sold more than 4.5 million copies worldwide. His 2006 debut album Undiscovered topped the UK album chart whilst the 2008 follow-up album Songs For You, Truths For Me included Broken Strings, the collaboration with Nelly Furtado which sold in excess of 1.5 million copies.

David Guetta
French superstar DJ David Guetta is currently, and without doubt, the world's most prolific chart-topping producer, boasting countless hits, and millions of records sales across the globe. His blistering Belfast debut performance on the closing night of Belsonic 2010 sold out months in advance, and those lucky enough to attend were treated to a massive audio / visual show, featuring a full set of Guetta's best known hits. He returns to Belsonic on Sunday 26 August to present a mind blowing, all new live show.

Knife Party
Knife Party is the production alias of Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, the founders of Australian Drum and Bass giants Pendulum. The duo exploded onto the Electronic Dance Music scene in 2011 with singles Internet Friends and Antidote (with Swedish House Mafia). Their debut EP 100% No Modern Talking has gone on to be a massive club hit, and has recently been followed up by a sophomore offering entitled Rage Valley. They made their Belfast debut in March of this year, playing to a sellout crowd at The Stiff Kitten Club.

Kill The Noize
This NYC based Dubstep producer, real name Jake Stanczak, backed up Skrillex on much of his 2011 world tour, and is a frequent collaborator with Nero, Porter Robinson, Skrillex and Korn.

You Me At Six
The band are at an all time high in their career - their third LP Sinners Never Sleep, released in 2011, reached no. 3 in the UK albums charts, while the debut single taken from the album Rescue Me, has been their highest charting single to date. Their recent Ulster Hall headline performance sold out weeks in advance, making them a huge addition to this already heavyweight bill.

The Coronas
The Dublin based four piece have recently released their third studio LP, entitled Closer To You, which debuted at number three in the Irish charts. The band sold out a record five night stand in Dublin's historic Olympia Theatre in December of last year, and are currently working towards a sell out headline show in Dublin's O2 Arena, which is scheduled for November. They return to Belfast after playing to a capacity crowd at QUB Mandela Hall earlier this month.

Jake Bugg
Looking like a young, rugged Ian Brown and sounding like Bob Dylan, Jake Bugg is 2012′s answer to Alex Turner. Arriving onto the radar last year after his performance on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, seventeen-year-old Jake is now signed to Mercury and recently unveiled his single Lightning Bolt which Zane Lowe swiftly earmarked as his Single of the Week.
