epic solstice ceilidh
Masked Pagan Ball
FRIDAY 17TH JUNE 2016
7pm - 2am
Think Midsummer Nights dream meets Mad Max, where inhibitions are shed in a masked rampage of the ancient rites, reaching towards the heavens and howling at the moon in an exultant dancing celebration of the longest day.
Free your inner fawn in three hours of masked ceilidh jubilation with the Ceilidh Liberation Front, London's most exciting ceilidh band. Combining virtuoso musicianship with wild exultant moves and a repertoire of the most exciting tunes, there is no greater arena to join the CLF than Epic Dalston, a vast space of chintzy charm.
Following the CLF are Sheelangig, festival favourites and wild exponents of virtuoso balkan folk madness. Sheelangig are a whirlwind of high energy floor-fillers, with a reputation for exhilarating and intense live performance.
Hosted by the immaculately-conceived Shesus, part Ceilidh caller, part saviour and all woman. Be lead through the pagan rites of summer in the subterranean palace of Epic Dalston, a vast cavern where lay lines meet meet bass-line meet moonshine. Then special guest DJ to wind into the early hours, we are running till 2am!
Dance lesson from 7:30pm - 8:30pm
@ Epic Dalston, 13 Stoke Newington Rd, London N16 8BH
