From 29th - 31st of July, London’s Southbank Centre will be transformed into 21 acres of captured past celebrating art, fashion, music, film, design and all things cultural from the 1920’s to the 1980’s.

This time you can catch the likes of Disco Bloodbath, Horse Meat Disco, Chris Duckenfield, Joey Negro, Leo Zero, The Revenge amongst many others.
The Penthouse 1980s celebrates all things new romantic, bebop and jazz with DJs such as Jeffrey Hinton and Mark Moore representing clubs such London’s Blitz, Wag and Le Beat Route, to Manchester's Legend and Berlin .
