Bugged Out! is one of the biggest, longest running club nights in the UK. Starting 17 years ago in Manchester, they went on to hold parties in Liverpool (some of us fondly remember the monthly pilgrimage) and London, and now hold regular events in Milan, Rome and Barcelona too. If you’re at all into techno, bass or electronic music, this intro probably wasn’t even necessary. Either way, it’s big news that they’re holding their first ever weekender in January 2012.
The first wave of line-up announcements includes big guns like Diplo and Chase & Status, techno legend Green Velvet, Bugged Out regulars from past and present Erol Alkan, Simian Mobile Disco, Matt Walsh, James Holroyd and Justin Robertson, and a whole ton of other Dummy favourites like SBTRKT, Joy Orbison, Ben UFO, Jam City, Martyn, Julio Bashmore, Deadboy and Jackmaster.
