International football and dance music have always gone hand-in-hand, just check our current World Cup special featuring a Brazilian team of Norms.
We've all been to festivals while games are being screened and a club is always a good place to celebrate a big win — or drown the sorrow of a defeat.
Regardless of England's chances in this tournament, expectations are rising and it's all set to go off this Saturday when the boys in white face Italy for the opening of Group D on Saturday.
Kicking off at 11pm due to time difference, the game has caused a headache for some promoters. Others, like Egg, however, have embraced it. Screening the game on big screens outside in the massive garden, the match will provide the perfect warm-up for the night ahead.
Grand dame of techno Monika Kruse will bring a rare Terminal M showcase to the club's Terrace featuring 2000 and One, a Dutch veteran with strong connections to 100% Pure, and Paul C & Paolo Martini, who've released on the label as well as Moon Harbour and Hot Creations.
DJ Mag's Adam Saville is also in that room, while East Side Gallery host the Basement and White Label Project take over the Loft.
With the Garden opening at 6pm and World Cup coverage kicking off with Uruguay Vs Costa Rica at 8pm, the party is starting early and continuing well into the early hours with DJs Marta Del Valle, JB and NDR dropping some tunes after.
