Other artist that showed up in this special Tribal Gathering edition of the Essential Mix were the Sneaker Pimps, Justin Robertson, DJ Sneak, Kraftwerk, Pete Tong and Way Out West, consisting of Nick Warren and Jodie Wisternoff. Livesets from Nick Warren, Fluke, Speedy J and Orbital recorded at this event can also be found on this site. It is not clear if these were broadcasted by BBC radio 1 Essential Mix, but after the Paul Oakenfold set the presenter Annie Nightingale mentiones  that Fluke and Speedy J are upcoming after Way Out West. So it is not unlikely that these were broadcasted by the BBC.
