Time to WhatsApp your crew and get your dancing creps on: the weekend is looming. Here are our top four London club nights and parties this week…
Big Fish Little Fish: Parent’s Evening
Rye Wax. Wednesday.
BFLF’s family raves have done sterling work bringing parents and kids together. But this free Peckham one-off is an adults-only affair. Sorry kids. Expect mum and dad to be hazy as fudge the day after. Read more about Big Fish Little Fish: Parent’s Evening.
Village Underground. Friday.
Long since free from the shackles of only partying on a Sunday, the Secretsundaze crew drop a huge feast of house loveliness on Shoreditch this Friday, as guest selectors Miss Honey Dijon, Amir Alexander, Francis Inferno Orchestra bring the high-class hntz-hntz.
The Victoria. Saturday.
Reports of the death of the London indie night have been very much exaggerated. This Pulp-loving, self-identified queer night loads up on floor-filling alternative classics by the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Le Tigre, Talking Heads and more. Read more about Pink Glove or find more London indie nights.
Denim Leap Year Party
The Vaults. Sunday.
Celebrate the bissextile year with a whole spectrum of gender subversion at this sprawling Waterloo venue, presented by Time Out and Denim, party throwers extraordinaire, as part of VAULT Festival. Get tickets to the Denim Leap Year Party.
And two essential events for your party diary…
Tropicalista Boat Party
Tower Pier. June 11.
Start making summer plans by snapping up a ticket to one of the most in-demand Thames boat parties of the season. Held on trusty rave raft the Dutch Master, this jam from promoters Movimientos and Arriba La Cumbia should float any Latin lover’s boat.
The Pickle Factory. March 19.
Having worked the sounds at pretty much all of the city’s most prestigious nights and clubs, it’s long overdue that London selector Moxie got her own party together. On Loop kicks off at Hackney’s Pickle Factory with guest Tom Trago and good vibes promised.
