LWE Summer In The City Preview


After the huge success of their New Year’s Day event at Tobacco Dock, which saw the likes of house and techno heavyweights Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, Adam Beyer and Heidi (to name a few) shake the roof off the stunning Grade 1 listed building, LWE are back with Summer In The City this August and it’s set to be an absolute belter of a show. Tickets are on sale now and available to buy here.

Taking over Tobacco Dock on New Year’s Day earlier this year, London Warehouse Events have already set the precedent for what to expect from Summer In The City, and the standard is incredibly high. From the slick organisation to the calibre of talent playing on the day, LWE’s New Year’s Day offering was the perfect way to bring in 2014, so what better way to celebrate the summer with the same great stuff, but EVEN MORE than before?!


For their summer event, LWE have unlocked another room in the venue, meaning there are now three arenas open for you to dance away your day. Kicking off at midday and closing at 10.30pm, Summer In The City will provide the perfect environment for enjoying the beautiful weather and raving until your socks fall off. With proceedings ending at 10:30, this still gives you plenty of time to enjoy the playground of music that is London town after Tobacco Dock shuts.

The main room is hosted by LWE themselves and features dance music heroes Groove Armada and DJ Sneak, who will be heading up proceedings at the venue. Joined by one quarter of Hot Natured, Lee Foss, who makes his debut for LWE at SITC, Bump and Grinders, Waze & Odyssey, will also be hotting things up in the main room, alongside underground titans, Anja Schnider – who played a blinding set at the NYD event, Krankbrother – who recently released their debut compilation on the legendary Defected Records, and Enzo Tedeschi.

In the second room, home to some of the finest names in underground electronic music, Crosstown Rebels present REBEL RAVE. Headed up by label boss, Damian Lazarus, REBEL RAVE will host Germany’s Mathew Jonson who will be bringing along his live set-up for the ride. Joining them will be CR fave, Subb-An, as well as Sis and Clive Henry, who also plays as one half of the well-respected duo, Peace Division.

In the newly ‘unlocked’ third room, prolific London promoters, Percolate, will be bringing the vibes! Having played host to some of the best names in the up and coming house scene in some of the most respected venues across London, they haven’t disappointed with their selections for Summer In The City. Metro Area, Dinky, Kate Simko, Social Disco Club and Krywald & Farrer will be keeping things moving along nicely throughout the day.


If you’re the sort that likes to party in style, Summer In The City have got that covered, too. With VIP tickets including their own swanky designated VIP area which comes with its own private cocktail bar, plus fast track entry, a free cloakroom and separate toilets (which quite frankly, we feel  is quite high up on the priority list)!

We caught up with Jack from LWE to find out a little bit more on about what the deal is…

What is the spirit of the Summer In The City?
The spirit of the event is in embracing the energy from London in the summertime and the love for underground electronic music in the capital.  We want to see lots of happy, smiley people enjoying the music they are passionate about in the sunshine, all whilst making use of an incredible space with strong, London heritage.


Who is the event for?
The event is aimed at grabbing lovers of house and techno in London and beyond! Anyone who has a keen ear for the genre old or new, there will be plenty to choose from. As it’s an indoor and outdoor space, there is something on offer for anyone. We’ll be revealing an extra outside space next week.


Is there anything you could recommend for event goers to check out off-site? Will you be having another one of your legendary after parties?
After party details will be released closer to the event, but for now we can’t say much more… for now!


Is there anything we should be checking out onsite?
There will be a VIP area at the event which will include seating, bars and specific toilets for these guests.


Are there any special features at this year’s event?
Following the huge success of New Year’s Day we’re going to take it one step further with the production levels! There will be some more spaces unlocked and we’ll be tinkering on the layout from last time and maximising on creating the best atmosphere for a summer party.


So that’s Summer In The City! Will we be seeing you at the front? Tickets are on sale here, and remember to keep your eyes peeled on Facebook for a pair of tickets to the events!
