For just two days each June, the festival draws in acts from all over the world who have long since dominated the electronic music scene and beyond. This year, you’ll find artists including New York’s Wu-Tang Clan, Belgium’s Charlotte de Witte, and California’s NxWorries (Anderson .Paak & Knxwledge) take centre stage from June 10 – 11 at Manchester’s Heaton Park.
