She won over the world when she performed at this year’s Eurovision (and taking the crown, might we add) and now Conchita brings her anthem ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’ to the arches of Heaven after a huge debut a few months back. Ever since she won the competition, drag queens around the world have allowed themselves not to freak out if they forgot to shave. Wurst has become a representative for Prides around the world, supporting the themes of Love, Respect and Tolerance. Don’t miss this inspiring powerhouse vocalist!

Heaven, Under the Arches, Villiers Street, Charing Cross, WC2H 6NG. 11pm-5am. £4 wristband from G-A-Y Bar.



It’s the last Bank Holiday of the year so it’s no surprise that everyone is pulling out the stops to say farewell to our favourite season. To help celebrations go down smoothly, Horse Meat Disco’s Jim Stanton will be in tow along with The Meat Boys, and TheMenWhoFell2Earth guys themselves. Ollywood will be on hosting duties with new boy Leon Osaro and Chester Hayes. It looks set to be out of this world…

East Bloc, 217 City Road, Shoreditch, EC1V 1JN. 10.30pm-6am. £6/£10.



“And I’m like, why are you so obsessed with me?” As standard with Bank Holiday weekends, Beyond intends to throw the mother of all after parties. In June we heard the talented Ben Mason playing to a packed out event, and now he returns for another – alongside residents Steve Piton, D’Johnny, Maze&Masters, Chris Brogan and Terry Vietheer – to name a few! And with this theme we’re expecting one helluva kinky stage show!

Fire, 39 Parry Street, Vauxhall, SW8 1RT. 4am-Superlate. £10 advance. 



Returning for their second installment, after a giant open-air affair last May Bank Holiday, Matinée are back for more! The DJs are just one of the selling points of this huge event (as are the hoards of men with big pecs and lower slung shorts, you gotta love a fittie). Fabio Luigi and Michael Mizrahi will be dropping the beats on the terrace, while loveable Mike Dower and Lee Harris team up for room 2. Ale Amaral and Arnaldo Novais duo for room 3, while Johanna Londinium is the hostess with the mostess.

Ministry of Sound, 103 Gaunt Street, Elephant and Castle, SE1 6DP. Midday-9pm. £10-£30. 



It’s a day we all knew would come sooner or later, but the transformation of Albert Embankment is finally nigh. On the plus side, Area are throwing one f*ck off soiree to say goodbye in style! You can expect almost every one of their big name DJs to be playing a set, including; Steve Pitron, Mike Dower, Fat Tony, Jamie Head, Paul Heron, Lee Harris, Maze&Masters, Matt Bogard and more! It’s going to be something of epic propotions – like Nicki Minaj’s bootay.

Area, 67 Albert Embankment, Vauxhall, SE1 7TP. 9pm-very late



Well they’re the two things that you’d usually find at Blocheads anyway – shorts and beards – so it was only natural that one weekend they’d adopt it as an official theme!  Just £5 entry to fuzzy faces and guys with their pins out! How it should be all the time, everywhere, no? Pagano, Per QX, Done & Dusted, Dave Kendrick, Andrew Moore, Ray Noir and Alessandro Londra are all on the DJ roster.

East Bloc, 217 City Road, Shoreditch, EC1V 1JN. 10pm-8am. £8 b4 1am, £10 b4 4am/£8 after. £5 all night for beards & shorts.



It’s the last Bank Holiday of 2014 (we know, totally depressing), but all the more reason to make this one count! And to help you get royally mash-up for your day off on Monday, all the HMD residents are showing up to turn it out! Jim Stanton, James Hillard, Luke Howard and Severino will be working the decks, which leaves it to you to work the dance floor!

Eagle London, 349 Kennington Lane, Vauxhall, SE11 5QY. 8pm-4am. £8. 


24/08/14: CHAPTER 10

Have you got the stamina for Chapter 10’s latest warehouse party?! The all-nighter runs for a whopping nine hours over August’s Bank Holiday. Tama Sumo brings you an intense Berlin-style set, while Marco Shuttle serves deep and dark techno. Randomer will be dropping his new EP ‘L.I.E.S’. Go show them how you do and get stuck in for an old skool warehouse rave!

Chapter 10 Warehouse, Autumn Street Studios, 39 Autumn Street, E2 2TT. 11pm-8am.



24/08/14: Sundays down at the RVT see a packed-out venue enjoying the comedic characters of Charlie Hides TV. Before Simon Le Vans and Sean Sirrs take to the decks to play the soundtrack to your Sunday night. With huge dance anthems and commercial house, it’s no wonder these blokes palm off Sunday lunch for this!
12pm-2am. £6.

25/08/14: Opening for a bank holiday Monday special, we’ve no doubt the regulars and locals will be out again for another boozing session! And with residents Simon Le Vans and Sean Sirrs returning for a second dosing, why wouldn’t they be? But it wouldn’t be the RVT with all house and no comedy, so La Voix shows up to douse the stage in camp frivolity.
12pm-midnight. £6.

Royal Vauxhall Tavern, 372 Kennington Lane, Vauxhall, SE11 5HY.  



Adam Turner DJs the main room alongside special guest DJ (and Olympic diver) Chris Mears and Jamie Hammond. Keyth David and Trex are also on the decks, while Sam DMS plays the best in R&B. There’s always time to squeeze in a summer blow out just before the sun disappears! So naturally we’ll be throwing on our skimpy shorts and attending!

Heaven, Under the Arches, Villiers Street, Charing Cross, WC2H 6NG. 11pm-5.30pm. £5 b4 1am, £8 afterwards.
