This guy has really made a huge mark in the last year or so. He plays big, brash, textured techno that is designed for huge spaces. He scaled up his sound for the vast crowd in Portugal and hypnotises as much as punished us with his well paced and balanced set.

Slick and crisp techno from Magazine made for a real dance-off in the crowd. People loved the kinetic energy and stripped back approach of the set and the mixing was tight and technical. Futuristic graphics looked 3D as they unfold around the DJ and it set us off for the final day on this stage in fine fashion.

This French icon smoked his way through a strobe-lit set of electro, acid and macho disco that kept the Anti-Stage lit. It was rugged and raw and as ever took us on a real trip into electronic weirdness.

This Spanish techno titan pulled no punches. He steppe dup to the Neo Stage after dark and brought heavy drums and brain frying synths. His smart use of filters added tension and had the thousands strong crowd marching to his beat.

This was another of the key performances on the Anti-Stage. It was light up with all manner of lasers and visuals and Rush, dress din a sleek black leather jacket, went in hard. Her drums were powerful and the acid lines ripped dup the giant crowd with real force.
