What makes the As One festival the top pick for partying over the Easter weekend?

Experience. We’ve been doing this festival for seven years now, in different formats. We know how to throw a party, so if you want to go out you’re guaranteed to find what you want at As One.

Will it just be Londoners attending the festival, or are you expecting people to travel to London for this event?

So far we’ve sold tickets in every continent – we’re expecting people to come from every corner of the globe.

How would you describe the music that people will be able to experience at the As One festival?

It’s going to cover uplifting house and circuit, to house and techno at the after parties.

It looks set to be a busy weekend – what’s the one DJ set, that is going to cause the biggest storm?

I’m particularly excited about welcoming Nacho Chapado to Matinee London for the first time – he’s at the top of his game and he’s set to rock The Grand.

Are there any special surprises planned over the course of the weekend?

I’ll give you an exclusive – we’re completely transforming Fire for Beyond Taboo. The shows will be outrageous.

Do people need to buy tickets in advance or will there also be tickets available on the door?

We always recommend advance tickets, as they’re cheaper. But tickets will also be available on the door at every event.
