UK Glitch Hop 1st Birthday Party + Awards shortlists revealed! FREE PARTY Friday 15th February @ Juno, London

It's time to reveal the shortlists for the first ever UK Glitch Hop Awards! The winners will be revealed during out 1st Birthday Party at Juno, on Shoreditch High Street, London on Friday 15th February.



From 7pm-2am you'll be treated to sets from Glitch.fm resident DJs William Breakspear, Morbidly Obese Midget, Mike Wallis and Your Niece, plus a special live set from Terrorbyte & Automaton from Beta Test Records. The man behind the UK Glitch Hop logo will open with a down tempo glitch set to ease you into the weekend, so it's well worth arriving early. We'll also have free stickers and CDs to dish out.

Having considered every possible approach, we've decided to throw this as a FREE PARTY for our community, the producers, DJs, listeners and promoters who have put UK Glitch Hop, neuro-hop, drumstep, whomp, mid-tempo breaks and omni-tempo bass music on the map over the last year. We hope you can make it!
