Symphonica: History of Drum & Bass

Expect to hear legendary tracks as you’ve never heard them before - performed by a live orchestra!
After their pioneering debut at Boomtown Festival in 2015, this unique combination of orchestra (led by conductor / composer Miles Hancock) & DJ (4 x world champion Mr Switch) has been tearing up dancefloors with their unique take on classic dance anthems.
They have taken on the biggest tunes from the worlds of house and trance, jungle and hip-hop, and give them a brand new twist - pitting breaks, beats, brass and bass against strings, synths and samples.

“Absolutely amazing!” - LTJ Bukem  

“The entire stage was electrified with energy… seamlessly mixing beloved dance tracks and transforming them into something powerful” - Continental Drifts
