Our autumn / winter diaries have been in a state of limbo since In:Motion announced their opening weekend parties last month, giving us a small taster of what was to come, including The Martinez Brothers and Jackmaster on Friday 29 September, followed by a massive party with The Blast including My Nu Leng, Caspa, Matt Jam Lamont, TC and Breakage on Saturday.
Finally, the next phase of In:Motion parties has been revealed, with some industry giant takeovers and very special all-night long shows. Tickets go on sale on 2 August, but keen beans can pre-register their interest at bristolinmotion.com.
