QUEEN OF HEARTS (LIVE)
Mixing the cool vocal detachment of Annie with the electro throb of Black Cherry-era Goldfrapp (Guardian)
The sartorially striking Queen of Hearts performs a special live PA, combining glacial, dreamlike vocals with the pulsating synth beats that underpin her electropop sound. We feel very honoured to be receiving a visit from Her Royal Highness, who has recorded with artists such as Sound of Arrows, Johan Agebjorn (the man behind Sally Shapiro) and Stuart Price as well as teaming up with some of the hottest names in remixing, including legend Mark Reeder (Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode), Perseus, Ghost Beach and Lightwaves.

HORSE MEAT DISCO
Acclaimed London DJ collective HORSE MEAT DISCO bring their disco behemoth of classics, italo disco, oddities and punk funk; Its the queer party for everyone; Homos and Heteros, club kids, bears, fashionistas, naturists, guerilla drag queens and ladies who munch.. Inspired by the halcyon days of New York nightlife, Horse Meat Disco have built a reputation for fantastic parties and high quality disco sets.
Horseplay champions new, brilliant dance music; a frisky mix of nudisco & indie dance with a fine dusting of glitter and sleaze. Horseplay is a dance club with a mixed queer crowd and a houseparty vibe; the kind of party where people dance without inhibition through the haze of smoke, lights and lasers. Created as an alternative to Bristolâ€™s mainstream gay scene Jockeys Mike Pony, Bronco and Jim Carna continue to pack out The Cavern Club with their monthly Underground Homo Disco.
PUSH THE BUTTON
Top pop DJing duo HITS&MRS play ALL THE HITS: from Robyn & Gaga to Aqua & Schlager. PUSH THE BUTTON is a celebration of the last two decades of POP in what the Gay Times describes as "London's BEST night out". With a special performance by Harry Clayton-Wright.
Manchester drag / party / performance / music collective of trannies and show offs; switchblade sisters who throw parties to dress to distress for. Theyâ€™re performers, DJ's, Musicians, Film Makers, Misfits & Party Monsters and they want you to join their gang! Be yourself and then times it by a 1000. Got a hump? Throw glitter on it and come dancing! Tranarchy have already thrown some legendary parties with some up and coming legendary children, Vogue Brawl, Jilted Joyce's Gypsy Wedding, Dirty Minds, Tranarchy Does Showgirls and Zombie Pride!
