Whirl-y-Gig Global Disco Rave Drum n Bass and Psytrance in Hackn on Saturday 20th October 2018
Now renamed simply as BLOC, this space provides the perfect blank canvas for Whirl-y-Gig's unique colourful and friendly environment.
Whirl-y-Gig embodies the spirit of community in a carnival atmosphere. Bathed in rainbow rippling lights and wrapped in exotic décor, it is a festival of delights for people of all ages and places.
Dance to the Whirl-y-Beat and journey through Whirl-y-Gig's unique electronic landscape, where many diverse elements blend into one cohesive and unifying experience. From deep dubstep and hot drum'n'bass to tropical house and tribal trance, the Whirl-y-Mix embraces hints and flavours of celtic or global, classical or psychedelic, rock and pop, roots and radical. Whether it be African or European, Arabic or Asian, Whirl-y-Gig finds inspiration from around the world, yet is rooted firmly in the here and now of London's alternative club scene.
Whirl-y-Gig is an event difficult to describe and a moment difficult to miss. With a strong and loving life force, the Whirl-y-Sound is a musical heartbeat for a future global family.
“The intense atmosphere, the diverse clientele, that constant intimacy and openness – this is the way that Whirl-y-Gig has been since its inception in the 1980s.'(Vice January 2016) http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/look-at-londons-longest-running-club-night-whirl-y-gig
