Also set to perform at the event this weekend is London-based producer and DJ India Jordan. In a recent five-star review of their second EP ‘For You’, NME wrote: “‘For You’ is 2020’s most joyous release so far, full of beaming rave weapons and would-be summer festival anthems landing at the perfect time. But at its vulnerable heart, India’s largest body of work to date is as much a love letter to themselves.”
‘Ministry Weekender’ is due to take place May 29 and May 30 – get notified when the stream is live here and check out the full line-up below.
