ith their truly excellent ‘2-4 hour party people’ tagline, Big Fish Little Fish have been bringing parents opportunities to get their party fix since 2013. Check out our review from one of their first wild parties.
The family raves give mums and dads a chance to dance to proper tunes spun by genuine headliner DJs, while the kids get in on the dancefloor action too. As well as popping up regularly across London, they’ve run events at Glastonbury, Bestival and LGBQT Pride, to name but a few.
The inter-generational bashes have a babies-only corner for the very tiny party people, craft tables, fancy-dress themes, confetti canons and bubble machines. It’s full-on fun for all the family, with a licensed bar and decent DJ sets, to boot.
Expect a line-up more usually at home in adults-only club nights, with the likes of Hot Chip, Basement Jaxx and Aphrodite taking to the BFLF decks in the past.
Kids can either sit on dad’s shoulders while he gets down to his favourite choons, or if they already can’t bear all that dad-dancing, disappear off to a dark corner to get themselves tattooed (by water transfer, of course). No babysitters needed, no stress.
On Sunday 3rd February, Big Fish Little Fish are getting the party started in New Cross at The Amersham Arms, with a ‘Vikings and Dragons’ theme – so expect a room of raving Thors, Lokis and Freyas, large and small.
For the music, there’ll be a set from DJ Will Nicol (Northern Soul Rave Patrol) who spins a mix of club classics old skool, acid house, hip hop, electro, techno, UK garage and drum & bass. So grab your pint, glow sticks and baby wipes, and get wiggling.
We’ve got two sets of family tickets (2 x adults & 2 x kids) up for grabs too. To enter our competition, fill in the box below.
