How Does It Feel To Be Loved? Virtual Dance Party
Saturday May 30th, 9pm-2am BST

While everyone is on lockdown and self-isolating, we're running virtual dance parties, so we can feel connected and dance to our favourite indie pop and soul songs in our living rooms. Stock up on your favourite tipple, push the furniture to the walls, turn up the volume, and join us in a virtual party!

We're very pleased that we'll be joined this week by Helen Love, who has put together an hour guest DJ for us. Her set will run from 11pm for an hour.

Ian HDIF - First two hours
Helen Love - Guest set for 1 hour
