Picnic will be celebrating its 7th birthday on March 30th, at FOLD, a venue located in East London. The ever growing party promoter have strewn together a very tasty line up for their huge 7th Birthday celebrations. Seven years as one of the most prominent promoters in the underground scene of London capital is no easy feet but the guys behind the brand keep pushing boundaries and exceeding expectations.
For this milestone event, Picnic have put together a special line-up! Joining picnic front man Andy Luff will be Julian Perez, Digby and Martinez.
Julian Perez is a Spanish selector with an impressive international reputation, playing in some of the most prominent festivals such as Outline in Moscow and Sunwaves in Romania, as well as in the finest underground club parties around Europe such as Rex, Fabric or Robert Johnson. Frequently invited to Sven Vath’s Cocoon Ibiza, Julian is guaranteed to heat up any dance-floor.
Coming from South Africa, Digby grew up playing in many bands for years before focusing on becoming a master of analogue sound. An obsessive vinyl collector across genres, he is rapidly becoming known for his esoteric sets and bold selections. Expect the unexpected from his set.
A familiar face at Picnic parties, Danish-born Martinez is regularly booked for the organisation’s events, which is not a surprise considering his great skills as a DJ along with an impeccable taste which gave him a strong reputation worldwide, allowing him to play in venues such as Space Ibiza or Panorama Bar in Berlin.
Founder and resident of Picnic London since it started in 2012, Andy Luff perfectly embodies the definition of a vinyl digger. Searching and collecting records for 6 years has brought him a selection coming from all angles, giving him the possibility to always express a different side to his style.
Unfortunately early birds tickets are already sold out, but you can get your hands on the first release tickets immediately following this link.
FOLD is a new institution for the arts based in the heart of East London. Home to music and creative studios with a 500 capacity, the venue promises to be the perfect place for this memorable party.

Ivan Iacobucci is debuting on the landmark label we all love with a four track EP, to be released on the 22nd of March. The EP trotters between strong house grooves and IDM experimental beats, bringing its listeners into unknown territories - especially the title-track 'Logic Solution' manages to be a dancefloor bomb with a strikingly original sound, making us think it's going to be one we'll hear a lot at parties in the next months.
A1 Logic Solution
A2 Platinum Tooth
B1 Magic Tribulation
Originally from Bologna, Italy, and relocated in Berlin, Ivan Iacobucci came from a funk background before encountering electronic music in 1988 with the birth of Detroit techno and Chicago house, quickly resulting in him launching Hole Records, the first independent Italian house music label. He counts many releases on renowned labels such as Cabaret recordings and Imprints records.

Round Up just announced a series of events throughout Europe. While we are waiting for the second edition of the mighty Up Festival, this year taking place on the 13th and 14th of July in Prague, the Round Up agency announced three special events happening throughout the Spring, in Turkey and their homebase Prague.
15.03.19 - Round Up x MU @ Istanbul, TR
On the 15th of March the warmer season will be started off with an extraordinary collaboration with the Istanbul creative space “MU”, a venue based in Seyrantepe Sanayi - the industrial district of Istanbul - hosting a different variety of music events. Psychedelic minimal maestro Barac will be headlining the event, and accompanying him into this music journey you will find Round Up’s own Bruno Curtis and MU’s resident Seko. All in all this one promises to be a wonderful event for the flourishing Istanbul scene, and a perfect occasion to visit the city for underground sounds lovers too!
29.03.19 - Round Up x Resolute @ Prague, CZ
A couple weeks after the first event, Round Up will be back in Prague, this time joining forces with the renowned New York organization Resolute. The two promoters are landmarks for their cities underground scenes and beyond, so we expect this party to be a special one too - also considering the jaw-dropping line-up. Three of the most wanted and best selectors around will perform at this event until early hours. The long-time queen of the scene Sonja Moonear will be headlining along the Italian selector Francesco Del Garda; you probably found yourself looking after one of the record he played in the last year. The cherry on the cake is Shonky, part of the Apollonia trio and a guaranteed party-starter. Mari.te, Bruno Curtis & Eddie Mur & Agustin Alvarez complete the line-up. The event is celebrating the 3 years of Round Up parties at the Microna Bunker, and you can get tickets here.
10.05.19 - Round Up x Cocoon Showcase @ Prague, CZ
Round Up will also bring for the very first time the full Cocoon showcase to Prague. This event will be much more than a simple party, bringing the full Cocoon experience to Czech Republic with it’s main artists Sven Vath, Ilario Alicante and André Galuzzi, accompanied by original Cocoon visuals.
