Adrian Lux – 21:30 – 23:00
From 2010’s glorious Teenage Crime instalment on Axtone Records to a forthcoming masterpiece, Lux is most certainly prepared to bounce his highly regarded trademarks at Air Festival at the end of July. His wildly demanded gems have been throbbing dance events all around the world since taken under the wing of superstar DJ Axwell last year, which posteriorly led to indenture with the influential Ultra Records. Adrian Lux’s steady runup has been fueled by quite a few smashes along the road, including Strawberry, Can’t Sleep and 2011’s icebreaker hit remix of Bullets alongside Nause and is yet emerging the top as he just recently released a follow-up, Boy, to last year’s Summer anthem. Being requested to remix Daft Punk’s major come-back single, Derezzed, and highly-topical with his stirring rendering of Pnau’s Solid Ground single, this Swede has got quite a few aces up his sleeve as he’s got the essential 2011 contender on the rise named Fire, bringing back the unique voice of Lune aboard.

Style of Eye – 23:00 – 00:30
The superlative Refune representative Style Of Eye has made quite a few stunning appearances lately, riding the wave of positive vibes from his release of Antidote in late 2010, which just recently was remixed by the tech master duo Pleasurekraft. His unique touch and submission to the electronic dance music scene has been a vital piece as he’s currently placed as one of the few producers that have truly fabricated a distinguished sound for themselves. Making recurring appearances on the prestigious record label of Sebastian Ingrosso, most recently the Miami contender, Sexx, and as the tip of the alternative remixer for camp Swedish House Mafia, this Stockholm-based Swede is undoubtedly a prominent weapon for the Swedish export within EDM. Not only did he grace Alex Metric and Steve Angello’s Open Your Eyes original in early May, but reappeared to remix the Swedish House Mafia and their last sing-along anthem, Save The World alongside his compatriot, Carli in June. With the recently fired away Wet / Dry EP under his belt as well, he’s more than ready to serve the crowd in Sundsvall up with a pinch of his exquisite sound.
Karlsson & Winnberg of Miike Snow (DJ set) – 00:30 – 02:00
Two thirds of the highly successful Miike Snow Swedish-American trio responsible for high-end prosperities in the indie and electropop genre over the last couple of years are also joining on the already remarkable line-up. The Stockholm-originating group was founded in 2007 and has ever since released a bunch of top notch tunes of live instruments and hypnotically catchy lyrics, initiated by the launch of their self-titled debut album. As the single releases of Animal, Black & Blue and Silvia among others have made several appearances on worldwide television, given prime-time air-time on BBC Radio and other established radio stations as well as being featured in numerous sport games and events, their luscious and rhythmical sound has far beyond a doubt scored themselves a defined and well recognized name in the music industry. Not only have their wonderful offerings become vastly recognized radio hit singles, but have also been taken to dance events and clubs across the world, courtesy of the acclaimed Sebastian Ingrosso & Dirty South, Fred Falke and Crookers amongst other successful remixers.

Having premiered new offerings from Duck Sauce and Calvin Harris to name a few, Mac is bringing her A-game to the north of Sweden for a one and a half hour of stirring hits.
Fedde Le Grand – 00:30 – 02:00
