Resurgence Live Acts

A handful of international and local artists swap the turntables for drum machines, synths and much more this April as we crack open the doors of the Royal Highland Centre for the first time since October 2019.


In the 6 years since their inception, the Italian duo have imprinted an inescapable presence on the techno scene.

Drum machines, stabbing synths and the unmistakable Roland 303 acid sound play an unforgiving role in their hardware only sets; a staple 999999999 sound.

This is truly an act for the harder-edged techno fans out there. With every pounding kick, snare and acid line carefully curated to inflict maximum punch, this is not a set for the faint hearted.

They play our Hangar stage on Saturday 16th April.


Quite possibly one of the most seasoned live acts on the circuit in recent years, KiNK is certainly a live act to be reckoned with.

After having picked up his first modular synth in the 90’s, KiNK was voted the best live act in the world by 2016. He states “My goal was to be as spontaneous as a DJ in terms of selection and free as a beatboxer with a loop pedal in terms of live composing”.

The Bulgarian’s sets are notoriously fun and captivating; infusing house, techno, breakbeat and any weird and wonderful sounds in between. His musical talent is also abundantly clear, processing intricate beats and melodies on the spot, each twist of a knob creating a noticeably exciting result and even at times handing machines to those in the crowd to incorporate their input.

Don’t miss this live set magician doing his thing on our Hangar stage on Sunday 17th April.


Planetary Assault Systems is the influential alias of Luke Slater, who has been leaving his mark on techno since his debut release on the world famous djax records in 1989. But this was just the start for the iconic UK producer…

In 1993, Planetary Assault Systems was born and has stayed true to his roots ever since with his psychedelic, intricate and archetypal techno sound playing around the world over the span of his career.

Another act for the techno purists, expect dense, dreamy sounds which balance the tightrope of heady electronic music and an all out main room mauling.

He plays our Blackbox stage on Sunday 17th.


Dutch live set extraordinaire and Filth on Acid boss Reinier Zonneveld brings his massive live show to us once again in April.

His meteoric rise in recent years has been testament to the insane amount of energy he brings to his sets, which never fails to leave a long lasting impression on those on the dance-floor.

Having shown us exactly what he is capable of during his April 2019 visit, we are eagerly await catching him perform come Easter.


For the first time ever, we have the pleasure of Robert Hood touching down in Edinburgh this April not only as Robert Hood, but alongside his daughter Lyric, for a rare and special weekend residency under his Floorplan alias too.

On Sunday 17th, Robert Hood brings his signature Detroit techno influenced live set to 6,000 dancers at Area V. Expect weighty kick drums, menacing chords and a taste of true Detroit techno from one of the originators.

Neither of his sets are to be missed.

Check out a Robert Hood Boiler Room here for a taste of what to expect.
