Known for its stunning backdrops and forward-thinking DJs, the Selectors party will host 2,500 dancers "prioritising room for people to relax, converse, dance, and otherwise express themselves."

"I'm a loner. I’m happy alone,” says Claptone. When he speaks — always in earnest, mostly with a sombre tone — you’re never sure whether this mysterious German artist is talking about the character he’s created, or the man himself. Truth is, there is probably very little difference between the two.
VARIETY is the spice of life at Hideout, with everything from grime and UK hip-hop to solid techno represented in the line-up; Paul Woolford, B.Traits, Charlie Sloth, Bicep, Bugzy Malone, AJ Tracey, DJ Sneak, Skream and Horse Meat Disco make this one very hard to turn down.
