Big Fish Little Fish Family Rave

Big Fish Little Fish Family Rave

Big Fish Little Fish take the banging tunes, unity and escapism you remember from the classic days of rave and bring them to a new family audience. With rave legends 2 Bad Mice and tech house don Terry Francis, you can re-live your clubbing glory years with a toddler on your shoulders and a pint in your hand.

BFLF Family Raves have something for everyone, young and, ahem, slightly older. Have fun at Captain Cookie’s craft tables; kids can make and decorate dancefloor accessories then dance under glitter cannons, bubbles and a giant parachute.

BFLF were named ‘Best Family Event’ both by audiences and judges at this year’s national Family Arts Festival Awards.

2 Bad Mice

Still living in 1991, 2 Bad Mice were instrumental in the birth of the UK Rave and Jungle Scene. Fast forward 25 years and the Mice hit the studio once more to remix top producer Breach ft Kelis and this led to their first new music together in over 20 years (released in 2016 on Hypercolour offshoot Sneaker Social Club). Radio play across the board from BBC Radio 1 (inc a 1hr mix for Benji B’s show), 1Xtra, BBC 6 Music (6 Music recommends), Rinse, NTS, Red Bull Radio, and a bunch of other pirates and online shows. DJ support from Shadow Child, Pangea, Skream, Goldie, Ben Sims, Falty DL, Axel Boman, S.P.Y, Mella Dee, Freestylers and Mark Archer to name a few made it the quickest selling EP the label has experienced. Their first material on Metalheadz will be landing in June 2017 along with a much anticipated 2nd EP in the pipeline.

Terry Francis

Since winning Muzik magazines “Best New DJ” award in 1997, Terry Francis has had what can only be described as a meteoric rise to fame. To those previously unfamiliar with his flawless mixing skills and instinctive ability to work a crowd it probably seemed as if he’d arrived out of nowhere. Fact is though, he had been blazing a trail through the underground for no less than ten years before the world at large sat up and took notice. In October 1999 he started a residency at London’s Fabric, where he continues to delight both old hands and new comers alike each and every Saturday night.

Children must be accompanied by an adult/parent/guardian at all times.
