For its move to Tobacco Dock, Summer Rites has adopted a nautical theme, combined with its usual mix of predominantly East London names.

Over 10 club arenas are promised featured long-standing London club brands Trade, Crash, DTPM and Love Muscle.

The East Starboard features Gutterslut, Batty Base, Hot Boy Dancing and Homoelectric.

East Bloc has its own room featuring its resident brands Handsome, Dish, Superelectric Party Machine, Blocheads and The Men Who Fell To Earth.

The “HMS Sink The Pink” features 1980s megastar and doyenne of X Factor Judges’ Houses, Sinitta, and Hazel Dean.

Also on offer is a Cabaret Stage, R&B terrace (featuring Bootylicious & Misfits), The Bear Brig (featuring Tonker, Dirtbox, Meat & Hot Fuzz) and Girls Arena (featuring Mint & She Bar), performances by Trannyshack and an arena by Vauxhall venue Barcode and after hours party Wrong.

Tickets are now on sale and more information is available online and on Facebook. Also listen out for free/VIP ticket giveaways on This Is Electric.

Shenagians will no doubt continue into the night in East London at Dalston Superstore (117 Kingsland High Street) and East Bloc (217 City Road).
