Image for Playground Weekender announces bumper second line-up

If the first round of names for Playground Weekender 2011 got you desk-dancing, part two is sure to take that excitement up a notch. An illustrious roll-call of new additions will be heading up the Hawkesbury River to party at Del Rio Resort.

At the top of the list are a couple of acts who suit the ambience of the festival to a tee – Manchester duo Lamb and trip-hop trailblazer Tricky. Seeing those shows under the stars on the main-stage will be something special indeed.

While the first line-up was a little light on DJs, this next instalment more than compensates. House heads will be rejoicing at the addition of Derrick Carter, Ame, Dixon, Trus’me and Playground regular Ewan Pearson. There’s plenty more to celebrate over, too, from the dub king Mad Professor to soul serenader Mayer Hawthorne.
