How Does It Feel To Be Loved? Virtual Dance Party
Saturday June 6th, 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 Christopher Geddes of Belle & Sebastian, who has put together an hour guest DJ for us. His set will run from 11pm for an hour.

Great set. So very happy to discover you and your playlists, I'm new to mix loud but thus far nothing beats HDIFTBL
