Looking further down the lineup, fans will appreciate names such as Little Dragon, Dr. Dog, Slightly Stoopid, and Papadosio who each bring a unique live band experience to the festival. And while NCMF boasts a uniquely eclectic lineup, EDM fans need not worry about being left out as international names such as Alesso, Nicky Romero, Dada Life, Zeds Dead, Adventure Club, Wolfgang Gartner and W&W will be spinning massive sounds all weekend long.
