Go Bang! Preview

YES YES YES! It’s that time again and the month of May is upon us. heaving it’s great fat lazy springtime of an arse over the humps of a bumpy April and seeing us well and truly into the good season (yes, I have decided that May has a big bottom). And what does May bring? GO BANG! of course…

This is just something by way of a heads up in case you are:

1) Living in Brighton in May

2) Thinking about living in Brighton in May

3) Going to be anywhere near Brighton in May

4) definitely, definitely like to dance and hang out with good people in good bars and pubs and listen to great quality groove and disco music….

OK the last one’s a bit long, but lets get started… All the information you need about this FREE month long extravaganza of disco / nu disco and groove can be found on the Go Bang Brighton blog RIGHT HERE!  Coming up over the next four weeks expect outdoor all dayers, bar events and sound system parties right in the middle of Brighton City delivered by a gaggle of local radio show hosts, producers, record labels, crate diggers and DJ’s, bringing the sound of groove based dance music past and present to the seaside for a third summer.

The Go Bang Brighton Festival started in May 2008 concentrating on using the cities “off piste” music destinations for the majority of the festival each year. Since then a community dedicated to underground dance music has enjoyed The UK’s only festival of it’s kind in settings such as beer gardens, seafront patios, back street bars and clubs that continues for one whole month each May. The festival was originally inspired by a relatively unknown deep house festival held in Cork in the 90’s which lasted all weekend in the areas boozers. However Go Bang Brighton takes things one step further by carrying on all month but still maintains the original D.I.Y ethic of the event in Cork by concentrating on the fundamental elements first and foremost MUSIC, LOCATION and PEOPLE.
