Bid farewell to a summer we'll probably never forget with sets from Young Marco, Paquita Gordon and the brilliant Orpheu The Wizard.
Secretsundaze, Kala Festival and Stamp The Wax wave goodbye to summer on October 2nd down at Colour Factory, a spot fast becoming one of our favourites in London. Formerly Mick's Garage, the Hackney Wick venue has got two beautiful dancing spots; a high-ceilinged warehouse with a mezzanine, and a freshly renovated Garden space that can go till 4am.
Joining us in the main space on headline duties is Safe Trip's head honcho Young Marco, a DJ famed for ballsy, genre-defying eclecticism. We've been planning his Secretsundaze debut for what feels like years and can't wait to finally make it happen! Keeping things Netherlands, co-founder of Red Light Radio and killer DJ in his own right, Orpheu The Wizard, rubs elbows with Marco in the booth, as does Paquita Gordon, a longtime friend of the party who's been earning her stripes in recent times with celebrated sets for the likes of Dekmantel and Terraforma. James & Giles will be on hand to close the dance in true Sundaze fashion, with rising Bristol selector Tilly on warm-up duties.
Outside in the Colour Garden, we've brought together two dance music institutions close to our heart, Kala Festival and Stamp The Wax, to present the session. OG house-don Frankie Valentine, who played for Sundaze in the first year of the party, is joined by high octane party-starter iona, Soundway Records' Norsicca, with Aaron L, Mr Holiday, Rosie Ama & Zipporah repping Stamp, and ONO & AKA Juan flying the Kala flag. The festival will also be bringing down some signature decor flourishes to give a taste of the always-excellent Kala experience.
It's been such a memorable return to partying over the summer, and we're delighted by the prospect of one last day & night dance. Grab yourself a ticket whilst they're cheap!
In order to gain entrance to the party you must 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 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.
