Tonight at The Rifle Club in Fratton, DJ Alex Dutton (aka Portsmouth Party DJ) and Party Animals Events team up to present their ’90/00s UV rave night.

The event looks to be a sold-out steamer with classic rave anthems playing all night including the likes of the The Prodigy, Darude and Tiesto.

There will be plenty of UV face-painting, Co2 cannons, foam, glow sticks and photo wall opportunities from 7pm until midnight. Standard tickets are £7 or £10 on the door with all the details at facebook.com.

Tomorrow, for all those who want their weekend fix of rock, punk, alternative pop and synthwave, be sure to come down to The Fleet in Guildhall for Overboard with me behind the decks from 9pm until 2am. Entry will be free as usual and you can expect plenty of ‘kraken’ alternative/indie bangers all evening!
