Group Therapy Weekender London is just a few days away!
We can't wait to welcome you all to the all-new Dockyards London venue this weekend, Anjunafamily. Ahead of the festivities, we wanted to shine a spotlight on some of the brand new Anjunabeats talent you can check out – read on!
Despite only recently joining our Anjunafamily, Bexxie is no newcomer to electronic music. She began producing and DJing in the late 90's, drawing influences from modern techno, early 90's hardcore, and tech house. She’s had an explosive year so far, remixing the lead single from Genix's '199X' album, 'Numb'; dropping a rather addictive single called 'The Time' on Anjunabeats, and joining our Group Therapy Weekender festivities at The Gorge. She's a brilliant talent and we're excited to have her on an Anjuna lineup for the first time in the UK!

Set time: Saturday, September 10 @ 12pm BST | Main Stage
For those of you who tune in to BBC Radio 1 on the regular, you may know Leena Punks more than you may think! Her debut Anjunabeats single 'On The Floor' received support from Sarah Story, Charlie Hedges, Clara Amfo and Adele Roberts just on Radio 1 alone, racking up 250 spins on the airwaves worldwide. Having toured Greece and Ibiza this summer, the London-based artist is charged up for her slot at the Weekender.

Hailing from Sydney, Australia and now based in London after stints in the U.S. and the Netherlands, Naz is a phenomenal talent. She returned to music production in March 2020 after a decade away, and her comeback ‘Voodoo / Lost’ EP on Ruben de Ronde’s Statement Music caught our ear - what followed was 'Underwater' (feat. Deanna Leigh), a highlight from the Rising series so far.
With a jam-packed touring schedule including support for Fatum on his Worldwide 10 tour; joining us at our label shows in New York City and Montréal; and appearances at The Gorge, rest assured that her set this weekend isn’t one to be missed!

Alex Sonata & TheRio
These boys have been on a roll lately! Fresh off a heavyweight contribution to Anjunabeats Volume 16, 'Breath Of The Wild', Scottish/Italian duo Alex Sonata & TheRio capture the Anjuna sound with a progressive techno twist. We'd go as far as saying, they're tech-trance's answer to Batman & Robin.
To get you in the zone for their set, make sure to check out their recent livestream from the stunning surroundings of Porto Flavia, Italy.

Last but certainly not least, our very own Amy Wiles. She's no stranger to stepping behind the decks are our events - her set blew the roof off of The Drumsheds London at ABGT450 (metaphorically of course), and she’s graced our YouTube channel with an arsenal of incredible mixes and livestreams. After collaborating with Matt Fax and Mirror Machines earlier this year on ‘Remind Me Why’, we’re excited to see what she has in store for us at the Weekender. She has two sets on Saturday, so don't miss her!
