AVA festival has announced the set times for this week’s event.

Kicking off this Friday (24th), The Surround Stage — streamed by Boiler Room — will start the weekend by hosting the likes of object blue, Kessler, Sputnik One and Helena Hauff, before Moodtrax, DART and Carista pave the way for epic closing sets on Saturday from KiNK, Sally C b2b Cromby and Hammer.

On the Nomadic and Grasses stages, performances on Friday will come from Optimo, Jayda G, Space Dimension Controller and Jordan Nocturne, with Percboi 3000, Carlton Doom and DJ Boneyard also confirmed for sets. On the Saturday, Anu, Sunil Sharpe, Gemma Dunleavy and Tommy Holohan will close out the festival, as well as R.Kitt and Kwame Daniels.
