Event description

Description

Curated by residents Paul Purgas and Estela Oliva in association with Somerset House Studios.

River Rooms and Lancaster Room

What is the state of London night club culture and what are the views for the near future? Nocturnal City brings together the city’s communities to celebrate and debate with a day-long programme of panels, performances and partying.

Berlin’s Berghain nightclub recently received the same tax status as the city’s concert halls in recognition of its contribution to culture. Yet in London, nearly half of our nightclubs have closed in the last ten years. From illegal warehouse parties to London’s recently established first queer Jewish club, our underground, progressive scenes have pushed forward irrespective of spiralling rents, stringent noise restrictions and the prioritisation of property over underground culture.

From algorave to activism, all-female techno collectives to the return of Leigh Bowery-style, foot-to-the-floor club kids and their audacious fashion; a celebration of the scenes, the sounds and the first tube home.
