At a mere 24 and 21 years old respectively, brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence of Disclosure have risen to become one of the most recognizable brands in dance music. So what do you do when your world-traveling Wild Life party series, a hit everywhere from NYC on New Year's Eve to Ibiza at We Love Space, seems to have reached it's peak? Build another mountain! Or in this case, a festival.
Being one of the biggest cash cows in the industry, festival creation (and curation) is a no-brainer move for the sibling sensations—they're not only bankable as performers, but now as esteemed tastemakers. Their upcoming Wild Life UK event will be co-hosted by another London house outfit, the live group Rudimental, and will feature an array of DJ sets from the likes of Seth Troxler, Jamie xx, Annie Mac and Maya Jane Coles (playing b2b), and David Rodigan, spread over two days at Brighton City Airport this June. They'll also be joined by non untz-exclusive acts like their collaborater Sam Smith, and—beguilingly—the Wu-Tang Clan.
Wild Life UK hits Brighton on June 6th and 7th. The full lineup will be revealed on Thursday, January 29. Head to wildlifefestival.com for more info.
