Following the latest advice from the government, we have decided to temporarily close Lakota with immediate effect until further notice.

We will be looking to reschedule as many of our up and coming events at the club and we will be updating information when we have it via the website and other social platforms.

We want our staff, artists and ravers to stay safe and healthy. The government is now recommending that everyone avoids social gatherings. So we have decided we have to close Lakota in order to play our part in stopping the spread of the virus.

We have offered the building to the City of Bristol to provide support in this time of need.

If you have any questions over the coming weeks please contact us via email on [email protected] this email will be regularly checked and all emails responded to.

Keep safe everyone x

The Arcade, a new concept from some of the minds that brought you ELEMENTS FESTIVAL that has MUSIC and FUN STUFF to do BUT IN THE SAME PLACE. We combine a fat lineup of some of the funkiest, bangingest GHETTO FUNK, BREAKS, ACID and DRUM AND BASS DJs with a SENSORY OVERLOAD of FLASHING LIGHTS, RETRO VIDEO GAMES, INTERACTIVE INSTALLATIONS and PERFORMERS so you’re never stuck for something awesome to do on or off the dancefloor.

The tempo increases through the night from FUNKY BREAKS and GLITCH HOP to BREAKBEAT, HOUSE and ACID polished off with a barrage of DRUM AND BASS and JUNGLE. We will be debuting our very own INTERACTIVE VISUALISER, a video game visualiser on a huge screen above the DJs that you can literally play from the dancefloor. To make matters even MORE AWESOME the ARCADE PERFORMERS will be showing off what they can do; GETTING WEIRD on stage and in the crowds.

THE COINLESS ARCADE is where you go to play, challenge strangers, get co-operative, get competitive and WIN AT STUFF.
Break from dancing? MARIO KART!
Want a stretch? TWISTER!
Settle an argument? STREET FIGHTER!

Loads more to be announced soon!

There’s nothing in this world quite like RAVING ON THE FLOOR but if you haven’t tried it then THIS IS YOUR CHANCE. The Lazy Raves Room is a PROPER COTCHING AREA full of COMFY STUFF, CUPS OF CHAI and a SECOND LINE UP of DJs and producers playing TRIP HOP, FUNK and LO FI loveliness til dawn.
