We might be midway through the month, but there's still a raft of choices for you to keep things strictly Earth, Wind and Fire - dancing in September.

This Weekend

Rave season is well and truly back. Nightvision in Edinburgh launches this weekend (check our look at the season's highlights), whilst down in Birmingham the 24 hour rave experiment will test your dedication to partying - hardcore enough?

Elsewhere there's Greg Wilson's Super Weird Substance tour starting in Manchester, Benny Benassi helps Ministry of Sound turn 23 and Liverpool welcomes Carlo Lio to the Garage. Oh, and the massive Haus Festival in Newcastle, M.A.N.D.Y hitting Gorilla (check our interview with them), Seth Troxler in a warehouse in Southampton (check out his 'Cheeky Tech House Set' above), and Carl Cox closing off another bulldozer of a season in Ibiza. Phew!

Coming Up

There's a heck of a lot to look forward to beyond the weekend horizon as well, Cocoon London and the huge line up at Coventry's Outbreak Festival being two shining examples, not to mention Cream Birmingham's 8th birthday (read our interview with headliner David Morales).

Mercury Music Award nominees Jungle (above) have another date in Manchester, with Urban music sensation T-Pain hitting the city a little sooner. Garage rockers The Subways are off on tour, whilst on a ravier tip bass duo Gorgon City are also playing live around the nation, with We Love all set to bid farewell to Ibiza for one year and Showtek on their way to Glasgow.

Final note, we're at Freshers fairs this week giving you young students all the advice you need (something Danny Howard did too), plus we've got a great new competition for young promoters - check that out here.

I'm out to overdose on Curb Your Enthusiasm boxsets, till next time.
