World’s First Drive In Family Rave with Big Fish Little Fish 18 July London

Get your motor running for the world’s first drive-in family rave!

Join Big Fish Little Fish family rave and guest DJ Slipmatt (SL2) for this exciting new event at London’s biggest outside entertainment experience this summer The Drive In Club UK. Brent Cross on Saturday 18th July. Slipmatt will DJ live under the big screen with cameras showing the stage action around the event space.


As you know, safety is always the number one priority for Big Fish Little Fish, and this is why we linked up with The Drive-In Club, who have worked closely with local authorities to ensure rigorous safety practices to make these events possible. Venues will be cash-free, ticketing will be contactless along with food and drink purchases. Cars will be parked at safe distances with a strict 2-metre spaced queue. There will be extensive handwashing stations and toilet facilities with clear safety messaging that all follow government protocols.

Watch the screens from either inside or outside your vehicles listening via Drive-In Club FM, their very own radio frequency. You will also have the option of bringing chairs to sit (or dance!) in a safely allocated area next to your car. They have even got food and drink covered, delivering directly to your car.

Each vehicle must have at least one child under 16 in it – it’s a family friendly show! Tickets are £40 per car for the 90 minute set.

Our regular events have a strong festival feel with dress up themes, confetti, foam, bubbles and giant balloons plus high quality multi-activity crafting areas designed by Captain Cookie Crafts. When these gatherings became impossible in March, we wanted to find another way to cheer people up and help them connect – and so the Kitchen Rave was born, a free, live-streamed virtual family rave with 70,000 families tuning in on Mothers Day. These still take place every Sunday afternoon.

The Drive-In Club will be a new chapter in family raving and Big Fish Little Fish will bring the same creativity and sense of fun to this completely new format, along with the Godfather of Rave himself DJ Slipmatt (SL2) – so you are guaranteed a banging set of perfect rave classics from one of the scene creators.

Big Fish Little Fish have won the Audience Choice Award or Best Family Event at the Fantastic for Families Awards every year since 2014 and Hoop Gold Awards for the last two years. Here’s what others have said:

“Reliably excellent” – The Guardian

“magical…credible music” – Time Out

“The maddest crowd I’ve ever seen!” – DJ Food

“The greatest day of my life” – 6 year old attendee

“3 best days: getting married, having my son, this event.’ – 41 year old attendee

So get your motor running for another Big Fish Little Fish first: The Drive-In Family Rave.

Big Fish Little Fish. By Families. For families. Together on the dancefloor.
