Danny Rampling’s Balearic baby is approaching a milestone anniversary.
Heralded as a founding father of the UK’s electronic club culture, Rampling will celebrate 30 years of Shoom in London on Friday, December 8. Founded in 1987, Shoom emerged as the UK’s first Balearic rave club, an establishment that became central to the expansion of the acid house musical movement. Then located in Southwark, the club sought to bring a bit of Ibiza to London, but found its institutional impact to be of a worldwide scale, greatly influencing the development and expansion of dance culture.
Come December, Rampling will throw Shoom a booming birthday bash at London’s Pulse nightclub. Bushwacka!, Saytek, and a variety of additional supporting artists are slated to spin at “Shoom 30.” With the event’s “legendary co headliners” yet to be announced, the roster of event performers will only continue to elongate as the occasion approaches.
Those interested in attending Shoom 30 may purchase tickets to the event here.
