Hazy club scene of people dancing in moody red lighting.

The cult queer rave celebrates Chaka Khan’s musical contribution to queer dance floors over the years, with Shay Malt, Josh Caffé, Prosumer and Hannah Holland.

The cult rave that epitomises London's queer scene – chaotic, hedonistic, fun and friendly – throws the after-party for London Queer Soundsystem Day (L.Q.S.D).

The line-up includes house and techno stalwart Josh Caffé, Adonis founder Shay Malt, Prosumer and Hannah Holland.

Adonis has kept its DIY aesthetic since beginning in a small north London warehouse in 2017.

The collective takes over Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer to throw the official after-party for London Queer Soundsystem Day (L.Q.S.D), Meltdown’s free outdoor sound system event celebrating Chaka Khan’s musical contribution to queer dance floors over the past three decades.

Harvey’s Space takes place in the Purcell Room during the event.

Conceived and delivered by the Harvey Parker Trust, Harvey’s Space is a space of welcome and an icebreaker space for the shy, the curious and anyone else who wants a little support to ease into the night’s fun. Find friendly faces, welcoming voices and some silly nonsense to get stuck into, as well as therapeutic support for if you need some time out.
