Edinburgh rave planned in wake of Prodigy frontman Keith Flint’s death
The return of a daytime clubbing event will mix poignancy with an afternoon of raving as DJs support mental health in the wake of Keith Flint’s death.
Proceeds from DayGlow at The Mash House on Saturday will all be donated to Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH), with part of the money raised being matched pound for pound by HSBC Bank.
The event, which will feature 23 DJs including residents from Taste, Nightvision, Rhumba, Musika, Main Ingredient, and Big Fish Little Fish, will play across three rooms between 2pm and 8pm.
Scotland Manager of Big Fish Little Fish, Kirstie Wilson, said: “Daytime clubbing events have been popping up around the country and we had such brilliant feedback from our DayGlow events last year, we decided to have a go again this year.
“Mental health is something that affects many of our lives, we’d already decided on SAMH as our cause before last week’s tragic news about Keith Flint.
“I’m a massive, massive Prodigy fan, tattoos and all, so Saturday’s event seems even more poignant now.
“It’s great to offer a party like this in Edinburgh and for a cause that’s so, so important.”
The main attraction of the night will be a live PA from Groove Armada’s MC M.A.D to top off the night.
Alongside the music, covering house, indie, disco and hip hop, there will be face painting, free glow sticks and a fully licensed bar.
