Nightlab: Volume 2 will provide an intimate insight into the past, present and future of UK club culture, with a double bill of discussions featuring dance music royalty.

Session one brings together two legends of the "Madchester" scene - DJ Greg Wilson and A Guy Called Gerald - who will share their enviable journeys across three decades of club culture in a conversation hosted by Bill Brewster. The in-depth discussion will explore the evolution of British club culture, from the golden age of the Hacienda to the present day.

Session two will explore the resurgence of politically driven nightlife, featuring voices from the contemporary club scene - a new wave of cultural activists that are fighting for inclusive dancefloors, empowering marginalised artists and raising awareness on global issues. This panel will feature Frankie Decaiza Hutchinson, co-founder of Discwoman; Nadine Artois, co-founder of Pxssy Palace; and Ryan Lanji, curator and creator of Hungama. The discussion will be moderated by Luis Manuel Garcia, dance music academic and co-founder of Room 4 Resistance.

The evening will be introduced with a presentation from Harjeet Sahota, senior policy advisor to the Youth Violence Commission. Labour Youth Officer for Camberwell and Peckham and a specialist in BAME Mental Health, she is also a social activist actively involved in London's grime community, playing a pivotal part in campaigning against the removal of the discriminatory 696 form.

The event forms part of the second edition of Nightlab, a collaboration between Mixcloud and Eventbrite that brings together the leading thinkers, promoters and entrepreneurs from across the UK's night time economy to create a platform for wider discussion and debate.

By uniting voices of the past and present, Nightlab hopes to inspire the next generation of nightlife.
