Andy C is returning to London's Wembley Arena this October.
Following his first sell-out show at the venue in 2018, at which he became the first drum & bass DJ to headline the venue and play an all night long DJ set there, he'll do it all again on Saturday, October 23rd. The previous event sold out in three days and with high demand expected again, a website has been set up to give fans a chance to sign up for pre-sale tickets here.

Drum & bass duo Ulterior Motive have called time on the project.
Announcing their split on social media, following 11 years together, the pair said a "challenging" 2020 had made them decide it was time for a change, following releases for labels such as Teebee's Subtitles (which put out their debut record), Metalheadz (which released their debut album 'The Fourth Wall' in 2014), and Shogun Audio. The duo also launched their own label, Guidance, in 2017, which will continue to put out records following the end of the Ulterior Motive project.
