When it comes to forward thinking dance lineups, Lost Village have got it pretty much nailed down. The secluded woodland party likes to keep things grooving, showcasing everything from house and disco to the darker shadows of techno, with even a splash of alternative indie to be found.
And although music is just strand of Lost Village – there's also a huge programme of comedy, theatre, workshops and art – we decided to take a deeper look at the lineup, picking out five mixes from artists on this year's lineup.
Peggy Gou is quite frankly everywhere right now. Having fought off misogyny in her own family, and a keen purveyor of fashion and style, it's little wonder her sets know no bounds.
Drawing from a diverse mix of house, techno, disco and acid, they're a true reflection of her as a person, and as a result, have made her one of our favourite selectors.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, it's been pretty hard to ignore Bicep. You've no doubt seen the logo. The bloggers turned house music icons now produce some of the genre's most infectious music, with their debut self-titled album testament to how far the duo have come.
Their DJ sets are equally as infectious, crafted off the back of years of crate-digging in record shops and a love for bringing unearthed gems to new audiences.
Motor City Drum Ensemble
One of the kings of the groove, wherever MCDE plays, he brings the party. His sets span disco, soul, house and techno, but it's his constant eye on the dancefloor that has made him such a popular figure amongst dance fans.
Those after something a little darker should look no further than Richie Hawtin. Now one of techno's most influential figures, he has shaped the scene through his minimal production, forward-thinking attitude to new technologies, and carefully crafted live shows.
His set at last year's Contact Festival in Munich, however, is a hark back to his Detroit core: two hours of unaltered, ferocious pounding.
Not many can create a groove quite as well as the man known as Hunee. For this Boiler Room set, he utilises an array of disco bangers from across decades and continents (with a little bit of acid-house thrown in for good measure every now and then).
