New artists joining the bill for day one include crowd favourite DJ Koze, who will bring his signature dream-house back to Junction 2 Festival for the third time, while Kiwi brothers Chaos in the CBD make their debut.
The legend Midland will also make his debut on the Friday, while Eris Drew adds her infectious energy to the day one line-up. One of our favourites Leon Vynehall is also announced with the Ninja Tunes artist bringing his masterfully crafted house music to Boston Manor Park.
