Saturday highlights the vibrancy of electronic music in the UK today, zeroing in on Club music. Electronic music has never been so diverse & dynamic.

With Saturday’s line up ranging from Detroit mainstay DJ Stingray to Boiler Room’s own breakthrough artist Sherelle, Boiler Room Festival will be celebrating the DJs & crews who are pushing club culture forward, and re-shaping the sound of house and techno.
