Party Lines: Dance Music and the Making of Modern Britain

From the illicit reggae blues dances and acid-rock free festivals of the 1970s, through the ecstasy-fuelled Second Summer of Love in 1988, to the increasingly corporate dance music culture of the post-Covid era, Party Lines is a groundbreaking new history of UK dance music, exploring its pivotal role in the social, political and economic shifts on which modern Britain has been built.

Melodic Distraction are excited to host a Q&A with Party Lines author Ed Gillett, hosted by Alien Izz with DJs Griff and Sakers on board to soundtrack the night!


DJs 7pm – 10pm
Q&A starts at 8pm
