A series of three covert parties to celebrate the 24-hour tube – details are only revealed 24 hours before each event
It's an established fact that Red Bull know how to throw a party, so it's no surprise that they're pulling out all the stops in this innovative series, which salutes London's nightlife credenetials. Future Underground is a programme of three parties over consecutive nights, angled with a typically enticing twist; information about the three shows will only be revealed 24 hours before each event – the only info first given out was the dates: September 9, 10 and 11. The artists and venue were kept a secret.
Time Out exclusively revealed that the venue will be the incredible Collins Music Hall, a subterranean theatre located three storeys beneath Islington Green, first constructed in the 1800s. And as planned, the first headliner – for the September 9 show – was revealed by Red Bull Studios as producer extraordinaire Hudson Mohawke 24 hours before the event. The second headliner was Charli XCX, and the final headliner for tonight's show has been revealed as the mighty Skepta – a true grime kingpin and basically the man of the moment.
Keep a close eye on @RedBullUK and #FutureUnderground, and at redbull.com/futureunderground, where exclusive codes that can be redeemed for tickets will be given out. Tickets are £5 each and all proceeds go to spinal injury charity Wings For Life. But don't worry if you miss your chance – highlights from the shows will be streamed online.
The final headliner, for Friday September 11, is still a secret, but watch this space. Props to Red Bull, then, for some creative party planning.
