Revolutions in Sound, the event that crams the cream of UK clubbing into the London Eye's pods, returns for a third year, celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of its organisers, the Red Bull Music Academy. This time, RBMA are going grandiose by hosting 30 – count 'em – crucial UK club nights from across the years, saluting both classic clubs and newer nightlife entries. As you'd expect, there'll be a tidal wave of DJ talent crammed into the pods to represent the clubs, both of which you can feast your eyes on below.
Bad news is that tickets for the pods have all been snapped up. But good news is that a second batch of tix for the silent disco at the foot of the Eye will go on sale on 24 October. Here, you can flick between all 30 pods at your leisure or listen to exclusive sets from two house kingpins, Ashley Beedle and Felix Da Houecat. And you won't get slow-burning vertigo. And if that still don't appeal, you can just get the hell online, as all 30 capsule sets will be streamed on the web.
Plus, there are various after-parties going on, with Glasgow's Sub Club invading Corsica Studios, where you can catch Derrick Catrer, Damiano von Erckert and Hesseltime, and Horse Meat Disco busting out classic funk on their home turf at The Eagle in Vauxhall.
Clubs in the pods include: Fabric Vs. FabricLive, Rinse, Bugged Out!, Corsica Studios, The Haçienda, Boiler Room, Glasgow's Sub Club, The Hydra, Metalheadz, The End, Shoom, Eskimo Dance and Lost.
DJs: Ben UFO, Richie Hawtin, Derrick May, Skream, Jamie xx, Julio Bashmore, DJ EZ, Erol Alkan, Rudimental, Jackmaster, Goldie, Gilles Peterson, Paul Woolford, Todd Terry, Horse Meat Disco, Craig Richards, Bok Bok, Sasha, Grooverider, and one Lily Allen.
