18+ photo ID required

Todd Terje
DJ Paulette
Natasha Diggs

With Saturday 9 October fully sold out we’re excited to announce an extra day of Brixton Disco Festival 2021 on Friday 8 October, taking over Electric Brixton, with a pre-party and stage at Brixton Village. and what a line-up we have in store!

Norwegian synth wizard & disco demi-god Todd Terje headlines Electric Brixton in a rare London appearance.

Terje made his name with a string of remixes and re-edits in the mid 2000s, putting his own spin on a variety of iconic artists including Isaac Hayes, Stevie Wonder, Roxy Music, and even Paul Simon.

His breakthrough to wider success came with the huge crossover success of "Inspector Norse" in 2012, propelling Terje to headline shows around the world including Sonar, a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, and being listed at #17 in the Rolling Stone magazine list of "The 25 DJs That Rule the Earth". The ensuing long player, "It's Album Time", followed, with further synth weapons including "Strandbar" and "Delorean Dynamite" becoming two of the biggest club tracks of 2013. "Alfonso Muskedunder" from the album showed Terje had more than just pulsating house in his locker.

In 2017, he was nominated for Record of the Year for the Four Tet Remix of his song "Jungelknugen" at the Electronic Music Awards. Terje has also been a prolific remixer over the years, including remixing the likes of Bryan Ferry, Bombay Bicycle Club, Hot Chip, José González and many more.

In support of Terje, we are very happy to welcome Natasha Diggs to make her first London appearance post lockdown, after she has developed such an incredible following over the last 18 months with her online sets. Natasha is an NYC based Dj & Producer who has created waves with her diverse musical stylings throughout the globe. Coined the 45 Queen known for rocking crowds with her 45 vinyl sets, she follows in the footsteps of a rich NYC nightlife legacy. For well over a decade Natasha has been digging deeper to provide the soundscape for parties across the globe in cities such as New York, Tokyo, Sydney, Beijing, Prague, Los Angeles and Berlin.

DJ Paulette rounds things off at the Electric... for nearly three decades and over three countries, Paulette has held residencies at some of the most prestigious clubs and best parties in the world, including the Hacienda, The Ministry of Sound, Queen Club Paris, Cocoon Frankfurt, and at Pikes Ibiza.

From radio to bar to club to festivals, from back room to main room, from warm up to headline, she is a champion of great music – digging deep in the crates. Her dynamic and uplifting shows plus her award-winning PR work for Talkin Loud, Mercury Records and work overseas with Radio FG (France) have earned her gold records, awards and plaudits and much international recognition and respect. As capable of entertaining a club with an 8 hour odyssey or a 10 minute mini mix, Paulette knows instinctively how to read then flip a room. She pays and plays it forward, inspiring a new generation by channelling her energies into youth work, activism, mentoring and radio / dj workshops at conferences, Universities and colleges around the country.

Paulette also spins outdoors at our Brixton Village stage earlier in the evening, in support of the Brixton Village Lates Soundsystem, which includes residents the Handson Family, plus support from Bomba Bomba - a new South London label founded by award winning singer / songwriter Love Ssega and friends. With the intention of creating space for Black artists within electronic music genres and beyond, they will be showcasing exciting rising talent including DJ / producer Usher Lavelle.

* Line-up and venues subject to change




The safety of our music fans, artists and employees will always be our top priority. Let’s all work together to ensure lockdown rules do not come back.

The government has asked us to encourage the use of Covid Passports at Electric Brixton but it is not a legal requirement. We will not be asking you to prove that you have been vaccinated, had Covid in the past or a proof of a negative test . If you feel unwell, please do not attend the venue and put others at risk. We also recommend you test on a regular basis.

Masks
While masks are no longer required, if you wish to wear a mask inside the venue you can.

We will require all masks to be removed upon entering the venue so that ID checks and any security searches can take place.

All our employees will be wearing masks.

Temperature Checks
We will continue to temperature check everyone coming into the venue.

Sanitising
Everyone will be required to sanitise their hands upon entering our venue. This helps us keep things safe.

Additional sanitising stations will be located in the toilet areas or by asking any of our employees who will have additional sanitiser behind all service areas and security points.

Venue Cleaning
On top of our enhanced cleaning procedures, we have also implemented Nordic Chem a Antimicrobial spray coating which is a monthly procedure. Nordic Chem coating is a mechanical kill that creates a very thin layer of “nano-spikes” that penetrate the virus/bacteria that comes in contact with the coating and thus killing it.

Social Distancing
The venue will no longer be enforcing social distancing but we understand the venue can get busy so we will be creating additional areas (at the front of the venue) for those who smoke or need some fresh air

Medic Assistance
Our medic is on duty at all events . If you become unwell during your time with us please head to the medic room located on the ground floor and they will assist you. We also have a substantial quantity of Lateral Flow Tests at the venue so if the medic has any concerns with your well- being they will offer you the opportunity to take a test.

Employees of Venue
Our employees will be asked to take two lateral flow tests a week prior to starting work.

Air Quality
The venue is blessed with extremely affective fresh air ventilations that is circulating at all times around the whole of the venue.

Payments & Cloakroom
We strongly encourage you to use contactless/cards if you can, to limit cash transactions. We will be asking all promoters to provide a card payment facility at the box office so that cash handling is minimal.

Our cloakrooms are also now taking card payments so again this will limit cash transactions. Please bring minimal items so that we can space out customers items as much as possible.

We look forward to seeing you all back at Electric Brixton.
