As Dimensions Festival gear up for 2017’s outing, a colossal bill of fresh names has landed; with Dam Funk, Aux 88, Parris Mitchell, Mr Ties, Willow, Khruangbin, Maurice Fulton, Kode 9 and more joining already announced heavyweights Grace Jones, Shuggie Otis, Ata Kak, Floating Points and Nina Kraviz.

With the summer months moving closer, the full line-up for Dimensions Festival 2017 will cover all bases for any eclectic adventurer; from funk tinged live shows on The Beach Stage to heavy techno takeovers deep in The Moat.

New names for this summer include Stones Throw’s master of groove Dam Funk, who’ll be sure to get bodies moving and feeling funky, then there’s live, bass heavy electro in the form of Detroit duo Aux 88. Metalheadz bossman Goldie holds it down for the DnB heads, in addition to playing a one off, exclusive techno set – not one to be missed. Iconic Chicago ghetto house king, Dance Mania’s Parris Mitchell is set for his Dimensions debut; expect pumping, top level energy in this anticipated set.

Grace Jones

Modern Love’s Andy Stott makes a welcome addition, along with soulful Detroit cuts from Scott Grooves, plus DMZ head honcho Mala joins. Ambient thai-influenced melodies come via Texan group Khruangbin, whose ambient, soul-soothing output has seen them playing across the globe the past year.

On-U sounds founder Adrian Sherwood and Hyperdub’s Kode9 hold it down for the darker and dubbier end of the spectrum, whilst enigmatic man of house and techno mystery Maurice Fulton makes for another Dimensions Festival debut that should not be missed.

And there’s so much more; co-founder of Jealous God Recordings Silent Servant adds a helping of deep, delving techno beats, whilst Guinness World record holder Billy Nasty is set to steer the crowd with a vibing electro set to shake the walls of Fort Punta Christo. Holding it down for Berlin is HOMOPATIK resident and queer-scene rep, Mr Ties who’ll bring a bagful of joyful, genre spanning selections. Lady of the moment, Manchester born Workshop affiliate Willow plays, alongside the delicate electronica ofTelefon Tel Aviv, and left-leaning, dubstep sounds of Tectonic’s Pinch.


Drum and bass builds an integral part of Dimensions’ programming, with circuit royalty uniting across the Dimension Festival days. Metalheadz family member Bailey joins, with Fixate and the Exit Records crew spinning alongside the likes of Ant TC1, and sound system OGs Mungos Hifi – holding down hosting duties are expert spitters SP:MC and MC GQ. Keeping the notorious tight knit feel, festival favourites Rhythm Sections Bradley Zero, Lexis (MIMS), Butterside Up DJs, Dutch maestro Masalo and Gilla represent the Dimensions global family.

Live shows come from Croatian talents Chui and Kozmodrum as well as an eclectic mix of residents from across the world, with Thea Hudson-Davies, CSFN, City Fly, Inner U, plus stalwart Leeds imprint Exodus, who bring another exclusive with a Muslimgauze set as well as rising classical x electronic breakout Prayer, all making the pilgrimage to Pula this August.

Plus, there’s many more explorations to undertake across the Dimensions days, with a solid cast of names already announced, including Jeff Mills, Theo Parrish, Marcel Dettmann, Floating Points, Cymande, Nina Kraviz, Helena Hauff, Nicky Siano and over ninety more global heavy-hitters and fresh-faced acts.

Opening the festival with a debut Croatian performance is Queen of the rhythm Grace Jones, alongside Berlin super-group Moderat, and award winning drummer, composer and producer Moses Boyd, presenting his Solo X show. All this will take place in the historical Pula Amphitheater; a 2000-year-old amphitheatre in the heart of the city; a truly unforgettable experience.
