Gigs Of The Week
We've picked out this week's best gigs.
Housed in a Victorian warehouse in Kings Cross, London, Egg LDN boasts a state of the art KV2 sound system to bring the party throughout the week and into the weekend. Hosting a huge range of midweek events, Tuesday to Thursday, and weekend treats including daytime parties during the spring and summer, Egg London has established itself as one of the best clubs for house and techno in Europe.
Fridays welcome all-night house parties, dipping into drum n’bass or garage from time to time. Saturdays are all about the latest techno sounds, welcoming a slew of international headliners to the decks. Taking over the garden space and loft terrace, daytime parties are also a huge part of Egg’s success story, one that sees the club tour across the globe (including their recent ADE Boat Party), and boast their own What Came First label.

Have there been any “I was there” moments?
On Egg LDN’s first birthday the party went on for two days with hundreds of people enjoying Egg’s alfresco experience for the first time.
The first Berlin Berlin party in the early days of Egg LDN hosted incredible performances from Jonny Woo, Ryan Styles plus the Ostgut Ton Panorama Bar DJs playing.
Egg LDN founder Laurence Malice hosted the Trade 25th Anniversary there in 2015 with Trade regular Nicole Moudaber headlining alongside Nina Kraviz, Christian Smith and the Trade and DTPM residents back together on the decks for the first time in over a decade. And what a party! There was customised decor and production which ran for 24 hours to a blistering soundtrack of techno and house music to a super appreciative crowd.
For Sololumn’s Diynamic showcase there was standing room only all night.
How do I get there?
The club is situated a ten minute walk up York Way from Kings Cross St Pancras tube and National Rail stations. A wide range of tube lines run through this busy hub including the Circle, Hammersmith & City, Northern, Victoria, Piccadilly and the Metropolitan. Coming from out of town then both Kings Cross and St Pancras connect with different rail services.
If you don’t fancy the walk take the 390 bus from outside the station on York Way for three stops to the club.
Alternatively travel on the Piccadilly line to Caledonian Road tube and then come out the tube and turn left and take the 274 bus to the club.
Where should I eat?
Egg LDN offers authentic in house Italian thin crust pizzas with generous toppings, or just down the road there’s stacks of choice with an array of fine eateries at Granary Square and Coal Drop Yard.
Where can I stay?
There’s a huge selection of hotels, Airbnbs, or hostels within easy distance from Egg LDN.
Egg LDN boasts a huge range of beers and spirits, so that’s booze covered.
The best place to stand for sound is in front of the DJ booth in the Middle Room, or head up to the intimate loft space at the top of the club which boasts its own smoking terrace and bar.
Egg LDN asks that you call ahead for any accessibility queries, as only the ground floor is accessible.
Where can you carry on the party?
There’s absolutely no need to here. Egg LDN runs until 6am on Fridays and 7am on Saturdays. During the summer months there’s even daytime events on both days, so the party really does go on and on.
