Last weekend Portsmouth saw another 48 hours full of brilliant atmosphere and it was good to put on my first event of the year with The Renegade Project, starting a brand new residency at Shack Bar, Albert Road. Big thanks to all who came down and got involved, including our headliner Liz Cornick!
Kicking it all off tonight are mighty drum and bass promoters Murky DnB, presenting their third birthday bash with headline act Voltage at The Old Barn, Milton.

The event will run from 8pm until 3am with advance tickets costing £8 (£1 off if you’re a student and £2 off if you’re a UP DnB member – but only with advance tickets). For more information visit facebook.com.
