The Essential 97 Weekender (2-3 Aug) in London's Finsbury Park plays host to more than 100 acts and DJs who will perform over the two days. There will be six separate dance arenas, each housed in a circus big top, and music for all tastes, from the enthusiastic drum'n'bassers, to the brassic beaters, dubsters and jazz lovers.

The headliners for the six stages on Saturday's Dance Day include Massive Attack, Aphex Twin, 808 State, Goldie, Bentley Rhythm Ace and Future Soundz of India.

On Sunday, Roots Day features Lee "Scratch" Perry, Horace Andy, De La Soul, Jungle Brothers, Steel Pulse, Gill Scott Heron and Transglobal Underground.
