In a statement about the event series, Annie Mac said: "I can't tell you how excited I am about this. I know there's an appetite for it because I've had so many messages from you who've grown up with me and listened to me on the radio every Friday night, who adore the clubbing experience but don't want to wait until 1:AM to see me play, who need to be sharp and useful at the weekends and just can't afford sleepless nights.
"Before Midnight is a chance for me to play long DJ sets with all my favourite records, those ones that spark joy, and a chance for you to have all the fun, the euphoria and the wild abandon you need and STILL get a good night's sleep.”
Introducing Before Midnight - a fully authentic clubbing experience that starts at 7pm and ends at the strike of midnight. A chance for you to have all the fun, euphoria and wild abandon you need and STILL get a good nights sleep.
