It’s that time of year once again, when inhibitions are shed in a masked rampage of ancient rites and exultant dancing to celebrate 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 Sheelanagig, 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!

For anyone that’s new to the ceilidh game, never fear- there's a dance lesson on the night from 7:30 - 8:30pm so you can get the moves down pat and really pick up some speed when its time to strip the willow. Plus, there’s no need to know the dances intimately as the callers will lead you through each tune.
