And you’re certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to big nights out in London this Easter weekend. Expect hangover-inducing, but unforgettable nights of great music… and some even better dance moves.
1. Idris Elba @ Egg
One of Britain’s favourite multi-talented men, Idris Elba, is making a much-anticipated appearance up on the DJ booth at Egg this Easter Weekend. On Thursday 24th, Industry London and Egg have combined forces to bring you an incredible night inside the North London warehouse style club. Other guest appearances include the talented Saytek, Barber and a secret special visitor… Perhaps it’s your chance to ask Mr Elba if the Bond rumours are true.
