It's the official start of British Summer Time as 1500 bashment ravers roll out on Easter weekend. 100% energy,
exclusive performances and the maddest dirty dancing and debauchery you've ever experienced. Hot Wuk = dancing,
drinking and no behaviour. But things are about to get WILDER than ever. Two words: SPRING BREAK!
Formidable dancehall-force The Heatwave have been providing the UK's bashment soundtrack for the past 10 years.
The Heatwave sound ties together music from Jamaica and the UK. Their powerful, energetic and exciting compilations
and mixes aim to show how dancehall can be found at the root of jungle, garage, grime, dubstep and funky music.
The Heatwave launched 'Hot Wuk' as a regular club night in 2009, and their weekly bashment party at The Social in
Central London followed in 2011. Early London success saw Hot Wuk roll out country-wide in 2012, hitting Bristol, Leeds,
Nottingham, Manchester and Brighton.
As part of their evolution The Heatwave's parties have now become a self contained live spectacle of dancehall culture;
stageshows, carnival trucks, dance crews, MC's and DJs... here's to the next ten years!

"their collisions of dancehall, soca, one-drop reggae, grime and UK funky are always future-minded but with a firm
understanding of heritage." Fact
