Epic Solstice Ceilidh - The Masked Pagan Ball. 

Think Midsummer Nights dream meets Mad Max, where inhibitions are shed in a masked rampage of the ancient rites, reaching towards the heavens and howling at the moon in an exultant dancing celebration of the longest day.

Free your inner fawn in three hours of masked ceilidh jubilation with the Ceilidh Liberation Front, London's most exciting ceilidh band. Combining virtuoso musicianship with wild exultant moves and a repertoire of the most exciting tunes, there is no greater arena to join the CLF than Epic Dalston, a vast space of chintzy charm. 

Following the CLF are Sheelanagig, festival favourites and wild exponents of virtuoso balkan folk madness. Sheelangig are a whirlwind of high energy floor-fillers, with a reputation for exhilarating and intense live performance.

Hosted by the immaculately-conceived Shesus, part Ceilidh caller, part saviour and all woman. Be lead through the pagan rites of summer in the subterranean palace of Epic Dalston, a vast cavern where lay lines meet meet bass-line meet moonshine. Then special guest DJ to wind into the early hours, we are running  till 2am!

Dress code: MASKS

The group dance lesson was great fun.. But so little air conditioning!! ..So hot in there! ..Plus once the group dancing was over, the party just went downhill from there and the place got empty really quickly. Shame! ..Hopefully better next year as this party could be great. Visited Epic Dalston on 2016-06-17

the night was nice, the place spacious, (maybe too much since the room looked empty) and the band really good fun. Unfortunately I got there too late and I missed one of the bands. Thank you for organizing. Visited Epic Dalston on 2016-06-17

Great ceilidh band and live music, I partied all night long! The venue was specious, the bar staff friendly and the moves on the dance floor easy to follow. I look forward to the next one!

Lovely night, including a friendly crowd and nice 'leading' of the dances, great bands afterwards too, nice venue which was big enough. The only down side was it got a bit too hot! Visited Epic Dalston on 2016-06-17

A wonderful night - a haven of fun and friendliness in an often unfriendly city! The music was grand and the dancing was a wonder to behold - my calves have been aching ever since... Visited Epic Dalston on 2016-06-17
