Hey London: The Vault Festival – Electronic Lockdown is this weekend!
Vault is a six week festival of music & the arts. Last year was a huge success, tickets sold out and in the press coverage was outstanding. Vault featured in The Times’ Critics Choice, The Telegraph’s Top 10 and was Time Out’s most viewed event in February. The festival brought together a diverse array of the arts from art installations, hammer horror screenings, and swing dance nights to silent opera and cabaret.
This year, with an extended license, one night has been designated an electronic music takeover. The venue is an incredible underground labyrinth of tunnels, situated in central London, underneath the hub of Waterloo station.
On February 22, 2014, The Vault Festival takes over the subterranean world for one night only. The Electronic Lockdown will bring you an eclectic mix of electronic music in a labyrinth of old access tunnels and secret chambers.
Room 1: Dark Bar
We are very excited to welcome Activia Benz to Electronic Lockdown, including the likes of Slugabed, ELOQ, My Panda Shall Fly and Activia Benz DJs. The groundbreaking record label will curate the Dark Bar, filling its cavernous space with anything from garage classics to brand new beat-scene weirdness. Headliner, Slugabed will be playing his own special brand of hip-hop, grime, club music, drum trax & anything in between and beyond. Representing the diverse sounds the label has to offer, Activia Benz is bringing in three of its new signings, London’s My Panda Shall Fly, Danish based ELOQ and Activia Benz DJs. Further to all of the above this is going to be an extra special event as Slugabed celebrates his birthday!
