French singer Marina P, one of the most prolific European dub scene voices, will support them on mic. Line-up of 13th festival edition will include respected and innovative DJ Vadim who will bring along two talented MCs.
Last announced name of this first Uprising wave is a producer, DJ, label owner and UK bass music scene pioneer, Roni Size.
