Three separate parties in two days will play tribute to the sounds that built the club
This weekend sees London's legendary Ministry of Sound celebrating their 30th birthday with a series of three parties celebrating musical styles associated with the club.
Things kick off on Friday with a trance all-nighter. Paul van Dyk will be playing a '30 years of electronic music' set in The Box, with support from Aly & Fila, Will Atkinson and John Askew, while in 103 former residents Judge Jules and Tall Paul will be joined by Paul Thomas, Lottie, Alex Anderson and Ryan Spicer. The event runs from 10pm-6am and tickets are £30, or £20 for students.
On Saturday, UK garage rules supreme during the day, with DJ Zinc, Todd Edwards B2B Majestic, Matt 'Jam' Lamont, Zed Bias and Heartless Crew in The Box, and Shosh, Sunship, Martin 'Liberty' Larner, Perception, Ramsey & Fen, Chip and Dilemna in 103. The party runs from 2pm-9pm and tickets are £18, or £10 for students.
And then finally on the Saturday night it's house music all the way – and indeed all night long, with another 10pm-6am bash starring Armand Van Helden, Groove Armada (DJ set), Justin Berkmann, The Menendez Brothers and Bellaire in The Box, Fat Tony, Arielle Free, Jimmy Switch B2B Griff, Brian Summers and Matt Francey in 103, Nualah and Mino in the Baby Box and Sarah Bo and DJ Liv in The Loft. Again, that one's £30, or £20 for students.
A very happy birthday from us to one of the world's most influential and storied discotheques. For more information, see Ministry of Sound's own website.
