It features a buzzing blend of cutting edge and contemporary culture, with a musical journey ranging through dub, world, ska, electronica, psy-trance, breaks, reggae, folk, Balkan beats and much much more...even old-time swing and a sprinkling of jazz!

The Sunrise Solar Dance Stage has been once more revamped to provide an even better sound and a better environment. This year's space will be twice the size of 2011s venue, including a new tent, a quality PA, top spec lighting, decor and visuals and a line-up to die dancing to...PLUS all run again on solar/wind energy thanks to Blue Solar.
This year the Dance stage is celebrating its most diverse range of quality, multi-genre artists to date. Hand-picked by Aliji, the line-up is sparkling with dance-scene legends and upcoming stars. With the intention of reaching out to a wider audience, the top acts from an immense range of genres will be tearing up the dance tent at Sunrise this year.
We are proud to continue the innovation and experimentation begun in 2010 - Thanks to Opus Pocus, we will again be able to present you with crystal clear Opus sounds at Sunrise, all powered from solar energy!
