London’s annual dance fest comes to Clapham Common for the 10th year to make sure the last bank holiday of the year goes off with a bang.
The two-day south London event has quickly become the must-not-miss dance event of the summer, taking clubland lovers outside for an all-day party. Saturday night is headlined by Armin Van Buuren, with Afrojack, Laidback Luke, special guest Eddie Halliwell, alongside Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold and with back-to-back sets, Carl Cox and Loco Dice.
Example headlines the Sunday night with Knife Party (aka Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen from defunct Aussie drum ‘n’ bass-ers Pendulum) alongside Nicky Romero, Andy C, Baauer, Benji B and Deviation, Strings, Dillon Francis, RL Grime, Friction and Friends, Kove, and special guest, Californian Steve Aoki.
Pete Tong presents the All Gone Pete Tong stage, with a Groove Armada DJ set, Erick Morillo, Steve Lawler, Dusky, Blond:Ish, Johnny Bloomfield, Jesse James and Scuba. Eric Prydz will be on hand too, with Boys Noize performing a live show and Laurent Garnier, James Zabiela, Tim Green and Sven Vath, with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (above) and The 2 Bears highlights on the Together Stage.
So cross your fingers for some top weather – on recent form, this is going to be the summer that comes through – and make sure you have the after party sorted as the show finishes at 11pm. Eric Prydz headlines the official after party, South West More, at Electric Brixton.

A charmingly-disarming piece of theatre for all.
Head to the Egg for a night you won't forget...
If you see a whale, man, sing out for it...
Art can be a grave affair...
Hang on to your hats - Greg Davies is back.
