The music line-up is quite something and is being headlined by none other than legendary hip hop artist Nas.
It seems like ages ago NASS announced their 2013 headliner in the form of the Notorious NASTY NAS but Friday is finally here and the gates are now open for NASS 2013. With the weather promising to be a weekend of glorious sunshine there is no reason not to get down to the Bath & West show ground to enjoy a weekend of stella music and sports activity.
Head over to the Main Stage to see hip-hop’s most influential MC NAS, dance floor siren KATY B, Radio 1 supremo ZANE LOWE as well as electrifying live band HADOUKEN! LOADSTAR, MONSTA, WE ARE THE OCEAN, SKEPTA and many more! Fill your head with Alt Rock, Punk, Dubstep, DnB, Hip Hop and House at this energetic Main Stage.
Dubstep and drum n bass lovers head to the Drum&BassArena and GetDarker Vs This Is Dubstep areas to witness stage takeovers from some of the biggest labels in dance history.
At the helm, dubstep innovator and legend BENGA will be whipping the crowd into a frenzy alongside a host of renowned dupstep and drum n bass troops including ‘The Executioner’ ANDY C, the master SHY FX, DJ MARKY, GORGON CITY FT YASMIN, ZED BIAS and P MONEY (to name a few!) for three whole nights of dirty tracks and insane drops.

Elsewhere on the NASS circuit, underground collective Sika Studios will be bringing the cream of their UK grime stable with DJ’s, MC’s, graffiti artists, jugglers, beatboxers, fire spinners, singers and a lot more.
