Big, bold and bassy, the Urban Nerds Carnival Special packs out every year and is a great (some might say the only) way to prepare for the next day's world famous Carnival.
This year's all night event is headlined by titan of the UK bass scene Breakage (joined by MC Wrec), who'll be joined in the main room by Mala & Coki, Kode9, Jackmaster, True Tiger, Marcus Nasty & Shantie, RattusRattus and IC3.
In Room Two, The Heatwave brings on a carnival tirade with a host of artists on a dancehall tip. Heading up the room will be The Heatwave themselves, joined by UK underground heroes the Ragga Twins, Uncle Dugs, Terror Danjah, Fonti & Bushkin and Champion.
Trigger fingers at the ready as Room Three will be hosted by Merk Chicken; purveyors of all things UK garage.
