Silly season is just around the corner (that’s Christmas party season in case you didn’t know), so why not get prepared for the crazy month by getting in there early and training yourself up? Ok, we’re messing, but on a serious note whether next month will be a busy one or not there’s no excuse to miss out on all the brilliant parties happening this weekend. Check out our guide below for the best of the best…
Studio Barnhus: Baba Stiltz + Kornél Kovács at Plastic People
Two of Studio Barnhus’ best come to London for the capital’s strongest Thursday night party, hosted by Huntley + Palmers at Plastic People. This is serious one of the most consistent events on the weekly calendar. Be there.

Studio 89 presents: 3rd Birthday with Craig Richards
A party that started in the basement of a 5* gourmet eaterie in Cardiff is transposed into the London landscape to celebrate its 3rd birthday with one of our best DJs on hand to spin a bit of disco. Craig Richards is at the controls for what should be a fantastic party.

Just Jack London
Next door to The Colombian, where Studio 89 host their birthday, their friends from one of Bristol’s best events, Just Jack, will be getting busy alongside the mighty Smokey Bear for an equally mouthewatering affair. Buy tickets for both, as they’re right next to each other and both more than worth a look. And there’s an after party just down the road… boom!
Just Jack: Delano Smith | Point G (live) | Jane Fitz | Tom Rio | Dan Wild | Robin Sure | Jethro Binns | Smokey Bear: Jane Fitz | Chrissy Meraki | The Wizard Of Odd |
The world’s biggest dance music magazine brings in one of the world’s biggest DJs for an almighty party. MK has been around since the last eighties, dominated the nineties with his ‘MK dubs’, disappeared for a while and was brought back to the house scene by Lee Foss and Jamie Jones. Now he’s even bigger than he was 20 years ago. This should be THE ONE this weekend.

Ten Walls (live) and Andhim at XOYO
Ministry Of Sound is one of London’s most iconic venues and rightly so, they’ve been at it for a long time now and have maintained a consistently strong ethos since they opened many moons ago. Henry Saiz will be a big draw this weekend, as will the legendary Nick Warren.
Ten Walls (live) | Andhim & more TBA |
Half Baked 5th Anniversary
One of our personal faves, Half Baked, celebrate their 5th anniversary with an almighty 18-hour soiree at the always excellent Studio 338. The line-up is ridiculous, Zip is worth the ticket price alone! Be there, be there… BE THERE.
Zip | Hold Youth | Sammy Dee | Mike Shannon | Bruno Pronsato (live) | dOP (live) | Vera | Julietta | Yakine and many many more! |
Lightbox Nights: Mosca & Jus-Ed All Night Long
Two badboys get busy all night long at Lightbox this Saturday. Mosca and Jus-Ed will be throwing down some serious jams at the south London venue no doubt, so it’s definitely worth a shout.

Find Me In The Dark 1st Birthday
Another fine promoter celebrates their birthday this weekend with a strong line-up. Happy Birthday Find Me In The Dark!

Simian Mobile Disco Residency at XOYO
SMD keep their residency at XOYO rolling with Crosstown Rebels visionary Damian Lazarus, along with Kiwi and the big man himself, Artwork keeping things bubbling in room 2 all night. Sick.

A Night in Paradise at Ministry Of Sound
As we all know, the Paradise Garage is pretty much where all this music came from (along with several other key clubs back in the mid to late eighties). It’s atmosphere and ethos has maybe dissipated over the years, but this special night at Ministry Of Sound aims to celebrate the permissive, free-thinking vibe of the Paradise Garage with a suitably strong selection of DJs to bring the party all night, in all three rooms. Essential Sunday destination… go on, call in sick!
The Box: Paradise Garage 1977 – 1987: Danny Krivit | Joey Llanos | David DePino | Victor Rosado | PA by Jocelyn Brown | 103: Ministry of Sound – The First Ten Years: Justin Berkmann | Kenny Carpenter | Ricky Morrison | Frankie Foncett | David Piccioni | PA by Bryan Chambers | Baby Box: Handsome (Disco/Hi NRG/House): Horse Meat Disco | Jeffrey Hinton | The Reflex | Fidel |
