Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum recording artist Al McKay created the EARTH, WIND & FIRE EXPERIENCE in 2015, honouring the original band. Set to headline across the weekend, the group will bring dance floor anthems and feel good vibes, honouring the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire.

From their humble beginnings as London club night promoters, Andy Cato and Tom Findlay aka GROOVE ARMADA will shake the trees of Eastnor Castle park. The duo have solidified themselves as one of electronic music’s most innovative, influential and recognisable acts. Storming onto the scene with their seminal debut album Northern Star, the duo quickly carved out their niche in the downtempo alcoves of dance music, garnering several GRAMMY and BRIT Award nominations along the way.

SKREAM is no ordinary artist and his commitment to music, and his fans, is unparalleled. Synonymous with producing and showcasing quality electric music, El Dorado is set to experience a sure fire set with tracks including In For The Kill (Ravey Remix), Ottis Chant and Summer Dreams.

One of the original pioneers of the jungle and drum & bass scenes, SHY FX is set to play an electrifying set of back-to-back bangers. A true innovator for dance music across the globe, SHY FX has recently collaborated with the likes of Lily Allen, Maverick Sabre, Ghetts, Kiko Bun, and many more with a brand new album set to be released this year.

Seven albums, a career spanning over 20 years and yet CRAZY P remains stronger and more relevant than ever. These guys are no strangers to the disco-house sound. Way before the rise in prominence of disco, house and soulful pop CRAZY P have spearheaded the revival. Fresh off the back of a sold out UK album tour with Age of the Ego, CRAZY P are set to shake the crowd at El Dorado this July.

25-year-old psychedelic soul singer GREENTEA PENG has been tipped as one to watch for 2020, and for good reason too. Both dark and light, half soul-search and half wise-cracking, GREENTEA PENG is set to take the crowd on a thought provoking journey with her honest lyricism and broken flows that marry together perfectly in a haze of zen.

NUBIYAN TWIST are a blend of virtuosic players, skilled producers and inspired composers join forces to create a unique, infectious sound drawing on jazz, hip-hop, afrobeat, latin, soul, reggae and dance music. The epic 10 piece live show features a 4 piece horn section, 3 vocalists, electronics and an international (Brazil/UK) rhythm section to create a powerful and unforgettable experience equally at home lighting up late-night festival headliner slots or selling out jazz venues across Europe.

DJ & Radio presenter SHERRELLE is gracing the El Dorado stage during this five year celebration to bring her underground electronic vibe. SHERRELLE has played alongside the likes of Midland, Storm, Mala, Jane Fitz, Dbridge, Calibre, Loefah, and Chase & Status. Her selections have landed her guest mixes on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, 1Xtra, Resident Advisor, Noisey as well as appearances on Just Jam and Keep Hush and that infamous Boiler Room performance.

DAVID RODIGAN is one of the most established and awarded broadcasters in the UK. The past five decades of Rodigan’s life have been all about reggae. He took this passion for ska as a 1960s teenager into broadcasting in the 70s, and never stopped ñ boasting years of specialist reggae shows spanning Capital FM, Kiss and the BBC, alongside performances all around the world and soundclashes with Jamaica’s top DJs, and is soon to add an unforgettable set at El Dorado to his catalogue.
