Starting with the Labyrinth Stage, Fatboy Slim would be the most crucial artist to check out during his 10-11 pm time slot.  He has been playing more and more dates stateside this year, but good things always come to an end, so missing his set would certainly be a regrettable occurrence.  If unfamiliar with his work, a quick YouTube search of his videos should ring some bells, and provide amazing entertainment through the dance moves of Christopher Walken.

The Sunken Garden Stage offers one of the most essential artists on the entire line-up in Slovenia native Umek.  Notorious for dropping legendary festival sets and playing up to four tracks simultaneously, this is simply a performance that cannot be skipped.  The label owner of 1605 records will be sure to provide everyone’s ears with unreleased gems that will send the masses scrambling to YouTube for track identifications.

After Fatboy Slim, make sure to head over to the Queen’s Grounds stage to watch United Kingdom legend Andy C.  He is the most talented drum and bass artist in the world that should be enough encouragement.

No offense to the talented Fatboy Slim, but the most frustrating conflict of this festival is Green Velvet’s performance from 9:30-11 pm on the Alice’s House Stage.  Author of endless techno gems, Green Velvet will most likely deliver the most memorable performance of the entire festival and provide numerous individuals with the difficult decision of ditching out on Fatboy Slim’s set.  The “lazer beams” will be in full effect for this one.

The Discovery Project stage is an opportunity to scope up some unknown and upcoming artists on the scene, but don’t get stuck there and miss out on all that Nocturnal Wonderland has to offer.  Everyone have a safe and enjoyable experience, and remember to drink lots of water.
