WHIRL-Y-GIG SUMMER CELEBRATION SATURDAY 17th JUNE 2017
with DJ MONKEY PILOT plus Special Guests SAM AND THE WOMP
Sam and the Womp first shot to fame when their first single reached No 1 in the UK download charts. Several nuggets of perfectly formed pop masterpieces followed. When we first approached them for a booking we were so pleased to hear that it all started for them on the whirly dance floor and that they had actually written a song called ‘Whirl-y-Gig’. So this is a truely special moment when we welcome the great and wonderful Sam and the Womp at Whirl-y-Gig’s Summer Celebration 2017!
The Camden Centre has the biggest and best sprung wooden dance floor and stage of all our past venues. The main space contains the bar and cafe and has plenty of tables and comfy seating.The back stage Mush Rooms are open to all and offer a refreshing and restful alternative.
Whirl-y-Gig embodies the spirit of community in a carnival atmosphere. Bathed in rainbow rippling lights and wrapped in exotic décor, it is a festival of delights for people of all ages and places.
Dance to the Whirl-y-Beat and journey through Whirl-y-Gig’s unique electronic landscape, where many diverse elements blend into one cohesive and unifying experience. From deep dubstep and hot drum’n’bass to tropical house and tribal trance, the Whirl-y-Mix embraces hints and flavours of celtic or global, classical or psychedelic, rock and pop, roots and radical. Whether it be African or European, Arabic or Asian, Whirl-y-Gig finds inspiration from around the world, yet is rooted firmly in the here and now of London’s alternative club scene.
Whirl-y-Gig is an event difficult to describe and a moment difficult to miss. With a strong and loving life force, the Whirl-y-Sound is a musical heartbeat for a future global family.
“Whirl-y- Gig has been in existence since the 1980s and for very good reason, for a fun filled, amazing night with great music and people it is without a doubt the place to go in London.” (Rock Industry June 2016) http://www.rockindustry.co.uk/london-life/
“The intense atmosphere, the diverse clientele, that constant intimacy and openness – this is the way that Whirl-y-Gig has been since its inception in the 1980s.” (Vice January 2016) http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/look-at-londons-longest-running-club-night-whirl-y-gig
