I Love Hard Beats ready to tear the roof off Basement 45 with first-ever Bristol party

Posted on: 06 Nov 2018

Never a city to shy away from some of the biggest parties in the UK, Bristol was an obvious choice for the next chapter of the I Love Hard Beats saga. Continuing their love affair with intimate, underground and downright filthy raves, the ILHB team are bringing their next event, Coming Up, to Basement 45 on Friday 16th November 2018. Advance tickets are on sale now at just £1 apiece but won't be around for long - act fast and book yours now!



Full details of ILHB's Coming Up on Friday 16th November.

Having kicked things off with a huge party at the legendary Light Box in Vauxhall, London in 2012, I Love Hard Beats has gone from strength to strength ever since with a string of parties in the capital that quickly earned the crew a glowing reputation.


Their original vision was to fill the gap left in the London rave scene after the end of the renowned Freeformation events, continuing to promote freeform as a genre - a sound that draws inspiration from several types of music but is most comparable to trance/psytrance.


The ILHB collective has repeatedly created party environments where people can truly escape the stress and seriousness of the working week, putting together club experiences that people can go to to have a genuinely good time. "Wise up, get stupid" is the ethos the crew has come to adopt over the years - rather than turning up, getting smashed and trying to look cool, ILHB partygoers are encouraged to turn up, get a little loose and enjoy the music whichever way they see fit.


With that, ILHB have made the move from London to Bristol - the undisputed party capital of the Westcountry - for Coming Up, one of their biggest events to date that sees brings their trademark multi-genre mayhem to Basement 45 on Friday 16th November. With freefrom & hardcore all night long in the main room courtesy of A.B, Transcend, Greg Peaks and more and the return of the Remix Room in room two, you can be sure that the energy will remain sky high throughout, all the way until the (estimated) 4am finish. 


Speaking on the decision to bring I Love Hard Beats to Bristol, co-founder Greg said "many clubs in London have been closing down due to planning permission - the city is forever growing which means it needs more apartments, which has meant we’ve lost a lot of the clubs we have used in the past. The other clubs are either extremely expensive or don’t have the vibe we’re looking for. It was important for us to drop the prices so that it’s easier for our followers to wise up and get stupid with us. Bristol seemed like the perfect choice as it’s not too far from London, but more importantly, it has a unique set of people who are open-minded to good music and always up for a real party - we can't wait for this one."


Advance tickets for I Love Hard Beats: Coming Up at Basement 45 on Friday 16th November are available now for just £1 per person and can be found here. For more information on I Love Hard Beats or to keep up with details on future events, check out their Facebook page.
