The best clubbing events of 2013
With loads of hot party tickets being announced, we think it's about you filled in your clubbing calendar
Tue Feb 5 2013
Know what you could use? A trip out of London to pastures anew. And what better place to revitalise your weary senses than an aerodrome in Essex. But wait, there's a method to the weirdness: We Are FESTVL, a bloody huge 15-hour dance party with a blistering line-up, including Eats Everything, Ricardo Villalobos, Joy Orbison, Sven Vath, Kerri Chandler, MK, Art Department, DJ Sneak, Dusky, Boddika... You get the idea. House and techno of all forms are very well represented, but if you can think of a genre it's probably covered here somewhere. Except perhaps clownstep. But apart from that oversight we're sold. See you in Essex.
