Also to be announced are line-ups from Hip Hop Brunch London and Rompa's Reggae Shack, with Big Beat and drum 'n' bass parties also to be confirmed on June 11 and 13 respectively. Paul Oakenfold and Perfecto guests close the series on June 14.

Pete Tong said: “As the original music director of the film, I am delighted to return to the same role for the live experience. This film has stood the test of time because all the emotions and feelings we have, that excitement before a night out, the tracks that keep us on the dance floor and then wanting to do it all again come the next weekend, it hasn’t changed.”

Human Traffic Live consists of three other elements, one being the 50-minute live theatrical experience which will recreate iconic moments from the film. There will also be a '90s-themed exhibition and themed pop-up featuring adaptions of the film set, notably the record store, and food hosted by Kerb.
