Party Tips: August 15/16
The heat continues in London town, providing us with one of the best summers we’ve had for a long time. As the sun continues to beat down on the city, so too does the beat of the music throbbing out of every club and warehouse space across the capital. This weekend there are some great, great events occuring, so check out our guide below to find out what’s hot over the next few days…
XOYO’s 2nd Birthday
XOYO has come on leaps and bounds since its relaunch two years ago, not only having a big refurbishment but also refining its music policy to curate some seriously impressive line-ups. This year of course they’ve had their run of short-term residencies with Eats Everything, 2 Bears and Jackmaster each taking charge of Saturday nights over 12-week periods. This week it’s their second birthday and they’re celebrating over two consecutive Fridays with massive line-ups.
