XOYO Set to Relaunch With New Owners in September.


Having laid low for the last 6 weeks of the summer, East London’s staple musical haunt XOYO returns this September 14th to definitively change the capital’s clubland.

Here to deliver a next-level clubbing experience to London, in its prime Shoreditch location, XOYO is a club that can’t be ignored. Under new ownership (don’t worry- looking at the lines up below its still going to be a clubland fav) XOYO is re-launching with a new top-line sound-system, a selection of structural surprises and innovative lineups; heads are set on improving everything the club has to offer.

Pushing the strengths of past parties from the likes of Flying Lotus, Hessle Audio and Bugged Out; XOYO’s exciting new era will take its musical-output into ground-breaking territory.

Penned future dates include a Jacques Greene label showcase, Breakbot’s album launch, nights hosted by the 2 Bears and Troupe as well as special appearances from Frankie Knuckles, Omar S and Lindstrom.

Taking charge of programming is London promoter and the venue’s new owner Andy Peyton (South West 4 Festival, Scandalism, Together @ Amnesia); bringing both evolution and revolution to the venue’s booking and music policy.

“XOYO is an incredible space and London should be braced for some very exciting events. We’ve got a young and hungry team taking charge of a club we want to turn into a clubbing landmark.” Andy Peyton.

As well as a killer clubbing calendar, XOYO’s gig schedule will continue to produce some of the hottest live shows in the Capital building on past successes (check Frank Ocean, Grimes and Friendly Fires.)

Opening events

Spin Off Club kick-starts opening events. The initiation of London’s latest House night begins with a high-grade, innovative line-up including Foals and Friendly Fires’ new project Deep Shit. Disco-house legends Optimo have left the Sub-Club for a rare appearance together with cult-figure The Revenge also down for some inaugural fun. Infamous London party-starters Kranbrothers have taken time-off from raving on rooftops to play hard within four walls as Dalston’s Disco Bloodbath end the line-up.
