TIMEOUT Recommendation: to the lazer cave this Saturday

to the lazer cave return for their 4th birthday!! 

We're very excited to be working with the guys over at to the lazer cave!!

The boys are back at ICan Studios this weekend for their 4th birthday and it is definitely not a night to miss!!

"It is the light in the dark night sky that signals the arrival of the lazer cave... the intense energy and curious sounds which leas us to it... the glistening core and the extraordinary experiences that await inside...where the lazer cave comes from no one knows but when it does, what is the best thing to do? Get inside it and have a freak'n party of course! YES. Night lords and disco warriors it is time to awaken, we have received the signal, it is time to return TO THE LAZER CAVE 4th Birthday WAREHOUSE PARTY XII."

"It’s back and we invite you to join us in experiencing the inner working of the cave...That means throwing a sick party and getting totally loose to the heaviest cosmic beats this side of Hackney. Get ready for a seriously stonking episode that is going to have you walking sideways and covered in glitter till Easter. AND YES this party is extra special as we celebrate our 4TH BIRTHDAY PARTY - This means cracking some serious budget to orchestrate the most pumped experiential rave we've ever thrown."

Time Out says:

"This warehousey party in east London combines tacky '70s B-movie references with hi-NRG disco, cosmic house and electro, with resident space cadets providing the tunes. There'll be thousands of laser beams at every turn, special effects, actors getting into character, makeup artists to transform you into a cosmic disco warrior and a laser maze. If you didn't get it before, these guys really like lasers. To sum up, imagine a Buck Rogers-themed party held at Laser Quest with sweatbox disco and cosmic funk soundtrack."
