Weekend long event announced
Pleasure Principle

Numbers and Dedbeat are to join forces on new weekend long event Pleasure Principle.

Two influential forces in dance music, Numbers and Dedbeat have long been sparring partners. Now the twin organisations are set to team up on a very special weekend long event, taking place in Newquay, Cornwall next year.

Running between April 26th - 28th, Pleasure Principle promises some very special performances. Numbers are toasting their 10th anniversary, and the event features some raucous hip hop from HudMo x Lunice project TNGHT.

Elsewhere, Rustie will be taking part while house legend Omar S is set to appear. Other names confirmed for Pleasure Principle include Robert Hood, Legowelt, John Talabot, Just Blaze, Rinse resident Ben UFO and Numbers own Jackmaster.

Sam Reid of Dedbeat recalls the early days of the Dedbeat x Numbers partnership: "We had a lot of fun in the early days since there was nothing around really like it. The intention was always to bring it back in a new form but with the same music standards. And since Numbers are old friends who we first met through Dedbeat, the new association for Pleasure Principle has genuine meaning."

Meanwhile, Numbers view the event as a great way to toast their anniversary with old friends. "This weekend is all about combining music and the life-affirming pleasure of escaping the daily grind. It has always been an ambition of ours to put on a festival and to be doing this with Dedbeat, a crew we looked up to when we started Numbers nearly a decade ago, makes it even more special for us."
