‘Wish you were there’
Last year saw no let up in the trend for immersive events that are booked before details are divulged. And by the powers invested in me, I can tell you that experiential nights will become more edgily clandestine. How? They won’t even tell you when or where they’re taking place.

In 2013, you had discos for a lunchtime boogie, 6am parties (see ‘E’) and nights specifically for clubbers over 28. Taken to its logical conclusion in 2013, I foresee the trend for niche nightclubs becoming so micro, they begin catering to audiences of none.
