The sun brought the capacity crowd out in numbers and saw the return of Carl Cox. The king of Ibiza, house and techno pioneer and one of the best to ever grace the turntables closed the day with a searing set fuelled with the infectious energy only he can bring. Joseph Capriati joined the party today, as well as DJ Boring, Joy Orbison and Overmono with a very special live set.

Dave Clarke, Festival Director, said: “The Riverside team have worked incredibly hard this year to bring fans one of the most diverse lineups we’ve ever had with some of the biggest in the scene playing alongside more underground names – plus a whole host of homegrown talent that we’re really excited about. As always, the energy from the crowd has been unrivalled and the great weather was just an added bonus.”
