The Irish mini-festival Airbound has partied in Berlin and Croatia in previous years but this year, it returns to its London home for another round from March 29th – 31st to bring the party closer to the many Irish abroad in London and offers another reason for Irish natives to make the visit.

This year’s event takes in a night-cruise down the Thames on the Dixie Queen (a replica of a 19th century Mississippi Paddleboat) on the Friday before moving to a warehouse until the early morning. Other events will take place over the weekend including an Airbound meal planned by the Sett Food Club. Tickets are £25 on sale from Resident Advisor.
