Glorious house, techno and plenty more besides in the (hopefully) blazing sunshine. This is Secretsundaze's bread and butter.
On July 25th Secretsundaze returns to its roots, with a Sunday day party at Hackney Wick’s Colour Factory, formerly known as Mick’s Garage. Two dancelfoors, one inside and another exposed to the sunshine, reminiscent of our Sunday All-Dayers at The Poet and Light Bar back in the mid-noughties.
Inside Secretsundaze’s James & Giles are joined by party favourite and Apron Records founder Funkineven, Balamii, BBZ and Touching Bass stalwart Shy One, North London production powerhouse K15 and rising Manchester selector and NTS host Tarzsa.
Outside our diggers delight bill features some of the UK’s most devoted crate-cruisers. London listening party favourite Donna Leake spins alongside scene stalwarts Nick The Record and Red Greg, with South Africa born, Manchester-based SNO and NTS’ Flo Dill rounding things off.
As mentioned, this one’s a day party with a midnight finish, so you can come have a dance but still be fresh as a daisy (or not!) for the start of the week. We haven’t hosted a non Bank Holiday weekend Sunday party in London in over 7-years, but the format is part of our DNA and the prospect has got us hot under the collar. Our summer events have been flying - our other July party sold out in five days - so don’t delay if you fancy joining us.
UPDATED COVID-19 POLICY
After some reflection, we have decided to tighten our policy on COVID-19, to keep yourself, our dancers, staff and DJ’s safe. In order to gain entrance to the party you must now show evidence of ONE of the following:
- a negative COVID test in the past 24-hours
- that you’re fully vaccinated (Covid Pass via NHS app or Vaccine certificate)
- that you have tested positive for Covid in the last 180 days and have now finished isolating
Covid lateral flow tests are free and widely available - link in our bio for more info. If you don’t want the NHS app, you can upload the result of a negative lateral flow test via the NHS website and receive a confirmation.
Please do not come to one of our parties if:
- you are feeling unwell / displaying Covid symptoms
- you have recently been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid / have been told to isolate
If the above applies, we’re happy to move your ticket to another future event, please just contact us via email.
We appreciate not everyone will agree with the policy - for some it will seem over the top, for others not extreme enough. We are enforcing this so that people feel comfortable coming to our events and as a collective measure to help our industry stay open after 16 months of closure.
If you work for the NHS, then we'd like to thank you for your tireless work over the past 12 months by offering you a concessionary ticket. Email us on [email protected] and we can sort this out. We know that COVID has had a huge impact on many people’s lives and as such have set aside a number of concessionary tickets for others that need it too - feel free to contact us if this is you.
Though we’re excited about returning to the dancefloor, we recognise that the UK recovery roadmap is subject to revisions. We will only go ahead with the event when we’re confident that it can happen safely under government sanctioned protocols. Should the event be forced to reschedule due to Covid, tickets will be transferrable to new dates, or refundable. The booking fee is refundable at RA’s discretion and is not something we are able to control.
Please note, a £1 'Green Tax' is charged on tickets and guestlist for all Secretsundaze events. This will contribute to Dance 2 Sustain, a green initiative aimed at reducing the amount of waste and carbon emissions across the organisation. This includes banning single-use plastic cups at our events and carbon offsetting all flights that we book.
