Marco V joins another of Holland’s biggest exports Ferry Corsten who takes to the helm and headlines the Go Dutch Arena which returns bigger and better on all counts this year.  Funkerman head up the house in the Go Dutch Arena for 2009, a man who’s label Flamingo Recordings was responsible for bringing you the anthem ‘Put your Hands up for Detroit’, he will be fronting up the dance floor for your pleasure. Also joining him will be Don Diablo, known for his production diversity, remixing names from Public Enemy & Newton Faulkner, his summer release ‘Hooligans’, a collaboration with fellow Creamfields artist and British rapper Example is set to take over the UK charts this summer. Other names on the Go Dutch line up include a DJ who has been at the pinnacle of Dutch house music for the last decade, Ericke, and some of Hollands finest, DJ Roog, Bingo Players & Benny Rodrigues. And to get the crowds hyped up, the arena will be hosted by the energetic, beautiful & talented MC Lady Bee.
