What: Vince Staples

After the critical success of his second album Big Fish Theory Vince Staples has been on a whirlwind tour. Make sure you catch him before he heads back to the US!

What: Field Maneuvers 2017

Where: Secret London Location revealed to ticket holders

Capacity is limited to under a 1000, there will no doubt be a smattering of fancy food trucks and eateries, and the line-up includes Midland, Ryan Elliot, Shanti Celeste. If you missed Houghton, this is the one for you. Find out more.

 

xoyo tung calendar culture music club

What: XOYO Loves: Detroit Swindle (live)

Where: XOYO

When: Saturday 2nd

It’s rare for a week to go by without us picking a Detroit Swindle record for our #morningmusic series on Instagram - we love their bouncy house beats. With only a few tracks having been released recently we're hoping there's lots in the pipe line, and where better to hear explosive new music than XOYO. If the recent ‘Tamarindus hollandicus’ premiered on THUMP is anything to go by, the live set will be something special. Support comes in the form of San Proper and Max Graef. Find out more.

helena hauff sunfall dj phonox calendar tung

What: Helena Hauff

Where: Phonox

When: Sunday 3rd

Helena Hauff's sets were at the forefront of our reviews of Dekmantel and Sunfall. Her meticulous blend of minimal and big room tech-house and techno has earned her critical success pretty much everywhere. Her BBC Essential Mix was revered and shared by both fans and big name DJs alike. Needless to say, it remains a big Tung favourite. Hydra and Ministry of Sound might both trying desperately to replicate the success of Phonox’s Sunday session formula but there's still only one place to be on the last day of the weekend. Find out more.
