By working with these iconic venues Project 6 highlighted the importance of London’s nightlife culture – and in doing so, extended their daytime party to unite music lovers and support local venues as the sun went down. Including 10 iconic London venues, Brixton Electric, Steelyard, Fabric, M.O.T, Village Underground, Colour Factory, Phonox, Xoyo & Hootananny.
