On Sunday 6th May 2012 two of London’s legendary pioneering trance clubs join forces to take over the majestic Coronet, in Elephant and Castle, London
Escape From Samsara and Pendragon are coming together to celebrate the Beltane full moon in style on the bank holiday with some of the happiest most up for up party people London will have ever seen.
The mere mention of this party on Facebook has sparked a major frenzy and it is been hailed as the collaboration of the year.
Both promoters have hosted ground breaking trance parties from the early 1990s until the present day.
Pendragon, were born out of the squat party scene in the early 1990’s, they dominated the legendary Tyssen street studios in Dalston, making it their spiritual home for over seven years. They also held monthly events at the Fridge for over 5 years.
Along with floats at the Notting hill carnival, the Carry on regardless parties in Wales, Out there festival in France and 9 massive events at the Brixton academy, plus many others far too numerous to mention. Pendragon have been fundamental in creating the London trance scene and have inspired a multitude of new promoters and DJ’s. They have recently been holding parties at The Jamm in Brixton were they have been quite literally lifting the roof off the building.
Escape from Samsara (EFS), were mainly famous for their Friday night slot at The Fridge in Brixton were they started off running monthly parties with indoor firework shows, wacky performers and massive balloon drops. Their success soon became apparent when monthly nights turned in too weekly nights and if you ask anyone who ever went to the Fridge what the vibe was like you will probably be graced with a grin and some very happy memories. EFS also held international parties in Australia, Israel, Czech Republic, Egypy, Germany, Greece and The Paris Techno Parade and they did parties in the UK at Brixton Academy, Heaven and Bagley’s Studios, Manchester, Bristol, Sheffield and Newcastle.
The Beltane celebration at The Coronet is set to be an awe inspiring night when these two giants of the trance world meet to give you four rooms, including an uplifting trance and psychedelic techno main room, a psychedelic trance room on the first floor with an adjacent chill out in the bunker bar and a funky house room on the top deck. Combine this with aerial and walk about performers and you will have one hell of a night that you won’t forget. So if you missed either of these two parties the first time round or you fancy a night out to help revive those hazy memories, this party is defiantly the one for you!
