Rave on the waves this summer

Beatfreakz August Bank Holiday Daytime Boat Party

  • Critics choice

The boat party scene is awash with house, tech and disco voyages, so it's good to see this badass drum'n'bass fest hit the shores of the Thames to add a bit of WOOMPH to things. After partying hard to celebrate their ninth birthday, d'n'b crew Beatfreakz are bringing a host of underground producers onto a boat that's sure to be bobbing about in the water like nobody's business on its daytime dance journey. Alica King, Resistance Fammo, Mr Traumatik and many more will be belting out all kinds of drum and bass heaviness.

  1. Westminster Pier Victoria Embankment, SW1A 2JH

Twisted Audio Boat Party with Danny Howells

  • Critics choice

Veteran house selector and UK club stalwart Danny Howells leads this party along the Thames on rave boat the Golden Flame. All aboard for some serious four-four grooving! Just don't fall over the edge when you're going for it on the dancefloor. Or if you do, make sure you swim/thrash around in time with the beats.

  1. Temple Pier Embankment, WC2R 2PN
