Whirl-y-Gig’s Winter Warmer opens early at 10pm and features Captain Flatcap, “a live dance band with influences of swing and ska, funk, folk, and filth, with trumpet, flute, guitar, mandolin, keyboard, percussion, and a sh*t load of squelch!”
One of the bigger clubs in Hackney, BLOC provides the perfect blank canvas for Whirl-y-Gig’s unique colourful and friendly environment.
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.
