25 Years of Bugged Out!

  • Printworks London (map)

Bugged Out - one of the UK’s longest running club nights - mark 25 years since their inception on 16 November at Printworks.

Bugged Out celebrates their milestone year with a stellar cast.

Green Velvet played his first UK show at Bugged Out in 1996 so it is fitting that he closes the show. Since the mid 90s he has produced charismatic, evergreen club hits like ‘Flash’, ‘La La Land’ and ‘Bigger Than Prince’. Another much loved electronic act that came to prominence in the same mid 90s period as Green Velvet are chief exponents of mutant, absurdist techno Modeselektor. They have filled the Bugged Out stage at Field Day numerous times.

It wouldn't be a Bugged Out party without the inclusion of Erol Alkan who has played the night nearly 100 times. Erol was snapped up to be Bugged Out’s resident back in 2001 after one incredible set at Fabric. He resided for the club at The End and recorded the 2005 Bugged Out/Bugged In selection compilation – tonight he will play both rooms reflecting both Bugged Out and Bugged In (arrjve early for this).

Bugged Out first booked Dusky for the Weekender in 2013 and were firmly aligned with in London putting on their sell out live shows and starting their ‘all night long’ brand Dusky Takes a Trip. They play two sets at the party in the main room and then closing room 2 with a rave set (an era that has influenced the sound of their recent releases).

The club has, since its early days, given a platform for bands to DJ (if they are equipped with deck skills) and so Jungle, the Shepherds Bush soul collective, will man the decks in the afternoon.


Rounding up the line up will be rising London stars Fall Forward, Grainger, Jay Carder and Raw Silk.

Expect some surprises on the night in room 2 with some special 25 min x 25 year sets from Justin Robertson, Mylo, Simian Mobile Disco with many more TBA drawing on two and half decades of music.
