As previous Essential events and the recent Homelands festie have proved, the big one-day dance event is a formula that works. Sheffield's enormously popular club promises state-of-the-art technology and four big arenas. Carl Cox spins a four-hour set and Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Judge Jules and David Morales are the other big names. The best tent looks like the Siam Arena where Goldie, the Prodigy's Liam Howlett, and Josh Wink perform. Expect lots of trance, and for those unable to get here, tune in to BBC Radio 1 for live broadcasts.
