Northern Bass has just made its first lineup announcement for this year's festival, and it seems to be one for the hip-hop heads.
The popular New Year's festival is usually home to largely electronic and drum-and-bass acts and this year is no different, but the first lineup announcement has also been headed by rappers Post Malone and Stormzy.
They're among 11 international artists on the first announcement, who will appear along with 14 local acts including Ladi6, Montell2099 and rapper Jess B.
More than 60 artists are expected on the final bill.
