Roar Venues Opening Party | Sat 13 Aug | Roar Venues | £10
Since the dawn of man, humans have congregated beneath the stars and escaped the trials and tribulations of everyday life through the time-honoured traditions of music and dance.

Setting the soundtrack to this afternoon of temporary freedom are Jack Swift, Sion, Apollo 84 and more. See our feature here.
