We’ve got London’s Locus coming up to Manchester for its debut, a reggae carnival, Teletech's wildest rave to date, Marco Carola with loads of other boss names at The Asylum, Jezza & Jod, MC Bassman's Halloween Ball, a cracking family festival and more.

Birmingham Reggae Carnival


When: Saturday 23rd September 2023

Where: The Mill in Birmingham

Reggae and summer is a match made in heaven. And those at The Mill clearly know this, so they’re blessing us with the reggae summer party we deserve! 

Coming in with a lineup featuring the best of the best, there’s The Marley Revival, General Levy, The Dualers, and Aswad. And there are still more to be announced! 

As an all-dayer running from midday to 11 pm, you'll need some fuel. So of course there’ll be award-winning Caribbean street food on site to keep you going. Soak up some rays in the outdoor seating area before heading back in to enjoy the irresistible riddims.

Where: The Progress Centre in Manchester

Locus is a London-based record label from the team behind FUSE with the ethos "by the ravers, for the ravers." This August Locus brings a house, tech house, and minimal party to one of Manchester’s best clubs

Progress Centre is one of Manchester's newest venues. Open-air but covered and boasting a custom Funktion One Soundsystem and matrix lighting installation, parties here are simply mind-blowing. And this one will be no different. 

Locus arrives for its highly anticipated Manc debut, bringing Rich NXT, Dungeon Meat, Locklead, Casey Spillman b2b Pach, and OBP. If you’re a proper partier with incredible stamina, you can find afterparty tickets here. But for now, secure your place at the day party below.

Teletech: ADE


When: Thursday 19th - Friday 20th October 2023

Where: HEMKADE 48 in Zaandam

If you’re looking for a good excuse to visit Amsterdam, we’ve got it right here. 

Teletech, once a humble little brand from Fallowfield, has blown up. And for bloody good reason. Known for booking the best acts and attracting some of the wildest but most positive and friendly crowds, there’s no party like a Teletech party.

Bringing huge names including Azyr, Hannah Laing, Basswell, Funk Tribu, Shlomo, and more to the Dutch capital this October, you know this one will be next level. And the Dutch seriously know how to rave. 

Don’t forget to pack your Pro Plus because this one kicks off at 8 pm and will take you all the way to 6 am.

Running from 2 - 10 pm, you’ve got plenty of time to head to an afters or be well-behaved and get a good night's sleep.

PRTY Presents Jezza & Jod [ALL NIGHT LONG]


When: Friday 18th - Saturday 19th August 2023

Where: SWG3 in Glasgow

Jezza & Jod bring earth-shattering thumpy kick drums and tracks that sound Red Bull infused to SWG3 as they conduct a night of pure techno madness. 

Having already kicked off the craziest parties alongside Pawlowski, blk., OTTA and more across the globe, Jezza & Jod have more than enough experience in turning parties into sweaty, filthy raves. This one’s their biggest headline show to date too, so you know they’re going to give it their all. 

Tickets for their last headline gig sold out in 24 hours so we wouldn’t wait around with this one if you’re up for catching this duo before they dominate the world.

Bassman Halloween Ball


When: Saturday 28th October 2023

Where: The Tunnel Club in Birmingham

Time flies when you’re having fun. So now it’s time to start thinking about Halloween plans! 

The man, the myth, the legend, the pioneer, the OG, MC Bassman leads this spooky Halloween ball in the perfect location, The Tunnel Club. Head down beneath the railway line, under the archways for a wild night of drum and bass and jungle madness. 

Halloween only comes around once a year and with the shadow demon himself in this pretty spooky venue, we really can’t think of a better way to do Halloween celebrations.

When: Saturday 26th - Monday 28th August 2023

Where: The White Hotel in Salford

High Hoops is a queer run "sweat-fest" and they’re throwing two huge Pride weekend parties at one of the best clubs in the area

If you haven’t been to The White Hotel before, get ready to be amazed. Originally a car repair shop, it now showcases the weirder side of club music. With its bizarre characteristics, unassuming exterior, and impeccable vibes, it really is unique. 

The music policy for the event is diverse, showcasing house, techno, disco, electronic, and acid house over the weekend. Saturday sees Roza Terenzi b2b D. Tiffany, Cormac, and Fastlove b2b k.h0lle. And Sunday sees Marie Malarie, Seb Odyssey, and a special guest TBA.

It’s going to be a belter.

When: Saturday 7th October 2023

Where: LAB11 in Birmingham

Two of the Midland's biggest brands link up again for the third time to deliver yet another smashing night of bass and DnB. 

We’ve got DNB Collective, party starters who’ve been causing pure mayhem since 2016, and 02:31, another Brummie brand that many huge DJs cut their teeth with before blowing up. 

Not much has been revealed about the event so far but we’ve been promised colossal headliners, never seen before b2b sets, and state-of-the-art production. And with it all going down in one of Birmingham’s best clubs and with these killer brands, we’re beyond ready for this one. Sign up for tickets below!

DYSFUNCTIONAL V: Complex Takeover


When: Saturday 14th October 2023 

Where: SWG3 in Glasgow

Over 30 DJs from the heavier side of electronic music - techno, hardstyle, and hard trance - will treat Glasgow's hardcore ravers to nine hours of pure chaos this October.

An insanely stacked lineup, for this one, there's Nico Moreno, Basswell, Dominique, TLO, Riot Code, Alignment, F I I S H I R, and more. Seeing as Dysfunctional sold out its last three events, and considering the European and Scottish techno royalty on the lineup, tickets for this one are, unsurprisingly, selling fast.

If you can handle nine hours of madness, secure your tickets below, dig out your best all black outfit, and strap in!

LeeStock Music Festival


When: Saturday 25th - Sunday 26th May 2024

Where: Kentwell Hall in Sudbury

LeeStock '23 wrapped up in May following performances from Black Grape, Natalie Imbruglia, T'Pau, The Supernaturals, and more, and it’s coming back next year!

A lovely family-friendly festival, there’s always lots of fun for littluns to get stuck into like face painting, reading, storytelling, colouring, and a sandpit to play in. And for the adults, the fest is renowned for putting some of the best British 90s acts on its lineup. And of course, there’s the bar and food stalls that use the finest, locally produced ingredients. 

The proceeds of LeeStock go to Willow Foundation, a charity that works with seriously ill people to give them unforgettable days out. The fest has already raised over £100,000 for them!
