How Does It Feel To Be Loved? Virtual Dance Party
Saturday April 4th, 9pm-2am

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 Stephin Merritt. His set will run from 11pm for an hour and 15 minutes. The running order for the night is as follows:

Ian HDIF - First two hours
Stephin Merritt - Guest set for 1 hour 15 minutes
Ian HDIF - Final two hours

All of our virtual dance parties are free of charge, but if you'd like to make a donation, that would be very welcome. You can donate here -

Great stuff, I have been on your mailing list for 10 plus years but never been to the club, but now realise what I have been missing!!! It's like someone playing my record collection with adding someone adding rounder and white Pearl's, which I did not know existed

Konstantinos Syrgiannis

Thank you so much for an amazing party night. Would you be so kind to post the tracklist?

How Does It Feel To Be Loved?

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!

The tracklist will be posted a week tomorrow. This gives people a week to enjoy the night without knowing what's coming up, as they would in a normal nightclub.
