The 90s was undoubtedly the decade that dance music really established itself in the UK. After making its way over the pond in the mid 80s, the sound refined and caught on through nights at Leeds Warehouse and Manchester's Hacienda amongst a tonne of others. Once the 90s arrived, dance music was everywhere, enjoying its most fruitful successes and creating hype like nothing else before it.

Sorted hark back to the heyday of UK clubbing on the 16th August at Cleethorpes' Meridian Park by welcoming some of the biggest names in dance music history to deliver an authentic, vinyl only 10 hour rave up of prime 90s bliss.

Heading up the mighty line up will be veteran breaks heroes Freestylers, who will be armed with support from MCs Navigator and Tenor Fly whose combined vocal dexterity is sure to get the crowd fired up.

One of the most distinctive voices of 90s dance music joins them in the shape of Alison Limerick (relive 'Where Love Lies' above) for some soul filled, piano lead house magic.

Revered rave don Mark Archer, AKA Altern8 joins in on the action too with his high octane broken beats and hoovered synth stabs primed for maximum dancefloor carnage. Longstanding DJing legend Marshall Jefferson is another must see, with his classic house sensibilities sounding as fresh now as ever.

The always impressive X-Press 2 (hear their timeless house and hip hop hybrid 'Hip Housin' above) round off a barnstorming, vinyl only, strictly 90s throwback rave up. Grab your Sorted tickets here.
