Competitive raving is a new one in our book. But when you have six heavy-hitting, genre-blurring collectives – including DJ trio Boko!

We're pretty sure you're already liking the sound of a festival of gin. We're VERY sure you will when you discover that at Tobacco Dock this weekend, not only will you discover more than 100 gins, four gin bars, gin liqueurs, gin cocktails, gin talks, gin gifts and ginformation (eh, eh), you'll also find live music and street food. But mainly gin, to be honest.
