According to organisers, a "vibrant eccentric" cast of performers will take over the historic building, with immersive performance company RIFT staging an eerie site specific show in Ally Pally's rarely-seen Victorian basements.

Following on from the successful inaugural event in 2018, they hope to see the crowds jiving along to Groove Armada's live dance show and hits such as I See You Baby and Superstylin,' and rocking along to the Criminals' thunderous set with hits such as Love Unlimited and Scooby Snacks.

Meanwhile the gospel choir - a toe tapping mash up of house and gospel - will get audiences clapping and dancing along. Hip hop karaoke, Barnet based Chicken Shed Theatre and a family area are also promised for the summer spectacular.
