Whirl-Y-Gig invites you to the Global Disco winter warmer with special guest Captain Flatcap and as always your legendary and ever present host DJ Monkey Pilot.
Captain Flatcap: “a live dance band with influences of swing and ska, funk, folk and filth, with trumpet, flute, guitar, mandolin, keyboard, percussion, and a sh*t load of squelch!”
Dj Monkey Pilot: taking you on a trip through an electronic landscape where diverse elements blend into one cohesive and unifying experience.
Whirl-y-Gig embodies the spirit of community in a carnival atmosphere. Bathed in rainbow rippling lights and wrapped in exotic décor, it is a festival of delights for people of all ages and places.
Dance to the Whirl-y-Beat and journey through Whirl-y-Gig’s unique electronic landscape, where many diverse elements blend into one cohesive and unifying experience. From deep dubstep to funky drum’n’bass and tropical house to tribal trance, the Whirl-y-Mix embraces hints and flavours of celtic or global, classical or psychedelic, rock and pop, roots and radical. Whether it be African or European, Arabic or Asian, Whirl-y-Gig finds inspiration from around the world, yet is rooted firmly in the here and now of London’s alternative club scene.
Whirl-y-Gig is an event difficult to describe and a moment difficult to miss. With a strong and loving life force, the Whirl-y-Sound is a musical heartbeat for a future global family.
Whirl Y Gig has been in existence since the 1980s and for very good reason, for a fun filled, amazing night with great music and people it is without a doubt the place to go in London.”(Rock Industry June 2016)
