In 2001, the festival made a triumphant return to Liverpool where it called Liverpool Airfield home. Boasting a bigger capacity, the event delivered an unbeatable experience, treating fans to a thrilling 16-hour celebration of non-stop grooves. The lineup showcased performances by acclaimed acts including Fatboy Slim, Gorillaz, Carl Cox, and Erick Morillo, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all.

Gorillaz and their cartoon band performed, and even submitted a rider for the characters, that included a Dream Cast, Box of Bueno Bars, Bottles of Yop and a request that the dressing room floor be covered with Cat Litter.
