HODDESDON (HERTS) ‘Mythical Beasts’ family rave DJ Slipmatt 12 October

DJ ANNOUNCEMENT: unfortunately Mark Archer is no longer able to DJ this event but – GREAT NEWS! – the full on Godfather of Rave himself Slipmatt will DJ!

Dragons, unicorns and phoenixes assemble! Join the Big Fish Little Fish family rave crew in this Mythical Beasts themed family event featuring rave royalty DJ Slipmatt.

Big Fish Little Fish take the banging tunes, unity and escapism you remember from the classic days of rave and bring them to a new family audience. With Rave, Acid House, Techno and Drum n Bass you can re-live your clubbing glory years with a toddler on your shoulders and a pint in your hand.

BFLF Family Raves have something for everyone, young and, ahem, slightly older. Have fun at Captain Cookie’s craft tables; kids can make and decorate myth themed accessories then dance under glitter cannons, bubbles and a giant parachute.

Come fly and roar with us – see you on the dancefloor!
