Big Fish Little Fish ‘Classic Family Rave with rave legend DJ Mark Archer (Altern 8) 9 June, 2pm – 4pm

Get your glow sticks at the ready and prepare yourself for the legendary DJ Mark Archer who will spin the best of Altern 8 and rave classics from acid house to drum and bass at the award-winning Big Fish Little Fish’s ‘Classic Rave’ themed family rave on Sunday 9th June at Tramline, Dublin.

Rave legend DJ Mark Archer celebrates over 30 years in the music business – he was there at the start of the acid house revolution and is delighted to be playing in Dublin for the launch gig. Bringing together life-affirming dance music, craft and play activities, the award-winning BFLF crew invite you to dress up, paint your face and go wild with your kids on the dancefloor to banging tunes. Raise a glass at the fully licenced bar and experience the full panoply of dancefloor effects: giant balloons, club lighting, confetti cannons and a huge parachute dance to round things off in this great venue with full club visual lighting effects.

“It’s ACE!” – DJ Mag “Credible music… magical” – The Guardian “Where’s the after party?” – 3 year old guest

A chance to dance, laugh, craft and be daft with all your family in your seasonal finery. With a toddler on your shoulders and pint in your hand – see you on the dancefloor!
