More than 100 bands, artists and DJs will perform in the area, dubbed 'a festival inside a festival', as Shangri La picks up the reigns from the recently departed Lost Vagueness.
All manner of random goings on will also be taking place in the Green Fields sub-hub over the weekend, in keeping with the spirit of its predecessor.
VF has learnt that plans are afoot for Dizzee Rascal to perform in a tank, just one of the small, alternative venues that will characterise Shangri La.
Other potential treats include Hayseed Dixie, the incredible Shantel and The Bucovina Club, A Guy Called Gerald, a collective of 17 stone Bearlesque men and even the actors from TV show Shameless.
Situated next to the Mutoid Waste Trash City, the area is bound to be a noisy and lively one long into the night.
Chris Tofu, from organisers Continental Drifts, said: "Never have such a vast array of performers, freaks, secret acts and strange vibey places been so intensely arranged before your eyes. We are bastards of the boutique festival!"
