Portal Day and Night Party | Sat 3 Jun | The Rainbow Venues | £15
Portal have perfected their party vibe, and this time they’ve even combated that ‘it’s over far too quickly’ feeling by providing a marathon day and night event. The sunset terrace is a must-see party setting for summer as it’s transformed into the roof garden. You can dance to some tantalising techno served up by some seasoned DJ’s such as Rothstein and Paradox City, who are ready to get you grooving on the terrace with the incredible backdrop of Birmingham stretched below as you party the day away. By night, it’s ready to move inside to the infamous Blackbox that has hosted some memorable events over the years. This time Portal’s incredible resident DJ’s Detlef and Latmun will be playing a back to back set, making sure you never tire of dancing.
