Presented by The Warehouse Project, Teletech and Lo-Fi, XXL will be taking place at Depot Mayfield, as well as two floors of the Star & Garter. One of those floors is a takeover from Berlin’s infamous broadcaster HÖR – who will debut a UK livestream from a secret headliner revealed on the day.

Following an incredible sell out show at the Depot last year, this year’s line up features a who’s who of techno royalty. With stage splits yet to be announced, the lineup is littered with the most in-demand techno artists around.

With over 12 hours of music running from 17:00 to 05:00, the difficult question is; which stage will you be at?

Speaking about the upcoming XXL event, Anton Stevens, Co-Founder of XXL said:

“​Tom and I created XXL together out of a passion for music and realising that in the UK there aren’t many opportunities to experience this kind of Techno on such a large scale like you can in places around Europe. My home town is Manchester and to witness 10,000 people at XXL last year at The Warehouse Project was an absolute dream come true. We are back again this year with a supersized line-up packed with major artists that will be the largest indoor techno event in the UK for 2022.

Anton Stevens, Co-Founder of XXL
