Running on September 9 and September 16, Honeyverse will takeover spaces of Southbank Centre such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer which will transform into a club night running late into the night.
The second event will see Dijon lead a panel discussion in the Purcell Room, focusing on the future of dance music, design and fashion with guests.
Commenting on Honeyverse, Honey Dijon said: “Discovery, Love, Joy. These are the tools of my creative practice and it gives me great pleasure to share with all of you the music and artists that inspired me in the curation of Honeyverse.
