Why buy?

Hosted by Chiara Wilkinson, Time Out's staff writer, you'll get an insight into what a career in the world of nightlife looks like right now. Whether you’re fascinated by DJs driving dance music into the future, you’re set on starting your own club night, you’re fascinated by the new generation of queer parties or you dream of curating lineups in the capital’s top clubs, you’ll find loads of inspiration here. Join Chiara as she hosts a discussion with these three luminaries:

Andrew Blackett, programming director at fabric nightclub

With over 15 years in the nightlife industry, Andrew Blackett started out distributing club flyers outside venues at 3am in the pouring rain. He’s now the current head of promotions at fabric, responsible for handpicking the most exciting DJs and acts around to get the dancefloor going every Saturday night. That means interacting with all sorts of international and local talent and curating lineups from the top down. As well as his 12 years at fabric, he’s worked at Ministry of Sound as a marketing and promotion manager for six years, and used to promote his own club nights while at Leeds university.

Nadine Artois, DJ, cultural consultant, co-founder of Pxssy Palace club night.

Nadine Artois is the definition of a jack of all trades. As well as being a DJ themselves, they’re the co-founder of London’s beloved monthly club night and party collective, Pxssy Palace, prioritising womxn and queer, intersex, and trans people of colour in the dance music scene. Pxssy Palace also hosts ‘the sanctuary’, creating safe spaces for LGBTQ+ people and women in festivals – most recently at Body Movements in Hackney Wick.

Sherelle Thomas, DJ

Since 2019, Sherelle has swiftly climbed to fame as a super-speed DJ, blasting jungle, drum ‘n’ bass, and footwork to a new generation of ravers. As well as circling the UK club and festival circuit and holding down a two-year-long Radio 1 Residency, she’s started her own Hooversound record label and founded BEAUTIFUL, a platform spotlighting Black and queer artists in the dance music community – all while working with some of the leading names in the underground club scene. As well as being behind the decks herselves, Sherelle previously worked as an intern at Shazam and used to video electronic music events for Mixmag.
