Former Radio 1 DJ and longtime presenter of ‘Future Sounds’, Annie Mac has announced a brand new club experience following her exit from the national radio station last year. ‘Annie Mac Before Midnight’ is dubbed as an “accessible nightclubbing experience designed for people who need sleep”.
The special event will take place at London’s Islington Assembly on Friday 20th May 2022. It will begin at 7pm and, unlike the traditional nightclub, will end at midnight. This might sound too early for many club-goers, but Annie believes she’s found a gap in the market that will appeal to the masses.
She commented: “Here’s the lowdown. Nightclubbing is not designed for people who need sleep. So I’m shifting the time parameters forwards, and bringing you a fully authentic clubbing experience that starts at 7pm and ends at the strike of midnight.
“I can’t tell you how excited I am about this. I know there’s an appetite for it because I’ve had so many messages from you who’ve grown up with me and listened to me on the radio every Friday night, who adore the clubbing experience but don’t want to wait until 1am in the morning to see me play, who need to be sharp and useful at the weekends and just can’t afford sleepless nights.
“Before Midnight is a chance for me to play long DJ sets with all my favourite records, those ones that spark joy, and a chance for you to have all the fun, the euphoria and the wild abandon you need and STILL get a good night’s sleep.”
So does this sound like something for you, or is this just a pre-drinks event before you move onto the real thing? Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 8th April from www.gigsandtours.com.
