Our top weekly event picks from around the globe.
Lights Down Low, the veteran West Coast event series known for its warehouse parties in Los Angeles and club nights in San Francisco, returns this Friday with another booming techno-focused lineup at a TBA location in Downtown LA. Following on from several successful events this summer featuring the likes of DJ Stingray, Pangaea, Scuba, and more, this weekend sees LDL organizers continue their streak with another stellar set of techno selectors, with Magazine co-founder Barnt and Mike Servito of The Bunker at the top of the bill. LA’s own Silent Servant will also play the party, along with Lights Down Low resident Corey Sizemore. Presales are highly recommended; get them here.
This weekend marks the third edition of Lost Village Festival, one of the newer boutique electronic festivals making headlines in the UK scene. Taking place in an abandoned woodland just north of Norton Disney, Lost Village aims to combine a range of quality electronic acts with intimate crowds, gourmet food, spa treatments, and theatrical performances. The lineup for this year’s edition is arguably the best yet; headliners Moderat and De La Soul will be joined by some of electronic music’s hottest acts, including The Black Madonna, Bicep, Jeremy Underground, Horse Meat Disco, Greg Wilson, Nina Kraviz, and many more. Tickets are already completely sold out, but you can find more info about Lost Village by going here.
And on Sunday, Unleash returns to Shoreditch for their legendary Bank Holiday gathering, which begins in the streets of Shoreditch for a daytime block party and continues all-night-long at Studio Spaces E1. Following on from their sold out party with Guy Gerber in July, Unleash organizers have locked in veteran French house masters Apollonia, along with several of the trio’s friends and labelmates, including Ion Ludwig, Moment Records boss Barac, and the German live act Wareika.
