Back for a second year after wowing audiences last summer, Ruins returns to transform Coventry Catherdal into a one day epicentre of house, tech house and UK garage, with huge names joining the best in homegrown talent.

Partially demolished by the German Luftwaffe in World War II, The Ruins of St Michael's Cathedral are deeply embedded in the history of the city, even Winston Churchill visited the ruins in 1941. The site is perhaps the most visible modern day reminder of The Blitz.

The setting, akin to Liverpool's Bombed Out Church is a remarkable backdrop for the party, which alongside the sound system and artists like wAFF, Sam Divine and Eats Everything last time round resulted in one of the year's most arresting blowouts.

For Ruins 2 they follow suit with some key dance names, with party starters Skream, Richy Ahmed and Tommy Vercetti tackling the main arena, whilst over in the Igloo Disco garage favourites Artful Dodger will be in control.

Tickets for Ruins 2 are available below.
