DJ MAG’S LONDON HALLOWEEN GUIDE

Get spooky late at night in the capital this weekend...

Halloween – the third busiest night of the year after New Year’s Eve and Saturdays – rarely disappoints with an almost endless list of top parties, with DJs and events splattered all over the capital. The only thing scarier than not knowing witch(!) party to go to, is picking the wrong spot, so we’ve put together a Halloween guide to calm your nerves. Just maybe avoid the Night Tube this weekend.

KRANKBROTHER PRESENTS HALLOWEEN – FORT ROMEAU / B TRAITS
Great Suffolk Street Warehouse, Southwark, Friday 28th October
Tickets

The unofficial kings of All Hallow’s Eve, the brothers Krank return for a suitably dark line-up of team techno, with Fort Romeau the pick of the bunch. Final tickets are still going so hit the above link for kick drums of all shapes and sizes.

FUTURE DISCO – THE REVENGE / SEVERINO / WOLF MUSIC
Prince of Wales, Brixton, Friday 28th October
Tickets

The top prize goes to Future Disco for booking the ultimate pun-filled lineup for their Hallowe’en special (Sever-ino? get it? do ya?). All three headliners are guaranteed to bring the good times through disco and house edits, remixes and stompers.

GQOM OH! – NAN KOLE / DJ LAG / TASH_LC
Stour Space, Hackney Wick, Friday 28th October
Tickets

Gqom Oh! are teaming up with Clock Strikes 13 at Stour Space for a lesson in the darker side of Durban house. Following their recent Boiler Room appearance and RBMA article it’s a good time to catch them in a more intimate space. Nothing intimate about the music though – perfect to dance away your inner demons.

PERCOLATE: ANDROMEDA 54 – TODD TERJE / CRAZY P / KRYWALD & FARRER
Great Suffolk Street Warehouse, Southwark, Saturday 29th October
Tickets

We fell in love with this line-up from outer space – the Percolate crew have done it again. Nothing but high quality house and disco from start to finish with the Norse man himself leading the pack. This one is on its final release for tickets and will almost definitely sell out — if wonky arpeggios, walking basslines and immaculate claps sound like your thing, get ready for the launch.

LOCOMOTIVE DISCO – THE GHOST TRAIN
Oslo, Hackney, Saturday 29th October
Tickets

If you’re looking for something a little more low key, Hackney’s Oslo and their Locomotive Disco parties rarely disappoint. It’s taking a spooky turn this weekend with The Ghost Train featuring Metronomy’s Olugbenga, Harrison and the usual Locomotive lads. Entry is a fiver, vibes are priceless.

BIG WAVE: HALLOWEEN WRONG MEETING – ANDREW WEATHERALL / IVAN SMAGGHE
Bloc (Autumn Street Studios), Hackney Wick, Saturday 29th October

Big Wave have the gruesome twosome in tow, as Andrew Weatherall & Ivan Smagghe take up their Wrong Meeting moniker all night long - their much-loved party that ran on a Thursday night at the infamous T-Bar before going global.

Last year Half Baked turner Number 90 into an Aztec Temple for their Halloween shindig, and this year they’re transforming the space into a haunted house.
