The transport returns at 7am and 8am, so prepare for a long night. A secret location, Sat 75 Jul.
Divine The Vic Bar mash-up of Northern Soul, sleazy funk, pop nonsense and the occasional breakbeat is ten years old this fortnight. As ever, Andy Divine and Hush Puppy will be programming your favourite anthems onto a suitably retro cassette, and this year there will be a posters and flyers retrospective in the gallery plus a glass of fizzy wine. Here's to another ten years. The Glasgow School of Art, Sat 75 Jul.
Electric Bogie Martyn and Ali Jengahead are joined by Dan and Jon Kahuna (pictured), the big beat DJs behind what was rumoured to be Norman Cook’s favourite night, The Big Kahuna Burger.
