SecretCity: Abandoned Factory Rave | Fri 23 Dec | Secret Location | £15
You’ve probably already heard about SecretCity, the proudly underground house and techno brand repurposing disused locations dotted around the second city to throw good old-fashioned warehouse raves. If you haven’t, just know this: the dress code is all black (no exceptions) and the venue will remain a secret until the day itself (no exceptions). At 8pm this Friday, a phone number will be released; this number’s voicemail will reveal the first clue. You will then have until 11.30pm to find the warehouse before it’s closed for the night – no exceptions. Good luck.

Heavyvibez | Fri 23 Dec | Amusement 13 | From £9

Things get heavy at this grime, bassline and garage night hosted by Jaykae, featuring the talents of P Money, Donaeo, Bass Boy and more. This one’s not for the fainthearted; it’s gonna be raw, it’s gonna be gritty and it’s gonna be intense, so make sure you can handle the heaviness before you step through the doors of Amusement 13 doors this Friday.
