Saturday – Palms Trax @ Patterns
It goes without saying that Palms Trax is one of the most promising new artists to date, with a sound rooted firmly in Chicago-Detroit. He’s established himself as one hell of a formidable selector… and a dance floor party-starter at heart.
Saturday – Seamus Haji presents Big Love @ Green Door Store
Brighton’s very own House legend/International DJ/Producer/Remixer/Big Love label owner and the man you can hear each Saturday night 10pm-12am on Juice Brighton will be live in town spreading big love to all! Expect the best house music all night long.

The Lie-in King returns with a brand-new show. Described by The Guardian as ‘unquestionably the best observational comic of his generation’.

Saturday – How to Die of a Broken Heart @ Brighton Dome
Heartbreak changed Femi Martin’s body and life forever. This is her solo theatre show about love, illness and not giving up. Full of truths, laughs, and uncomfortable moments ‘How to Die of a Broken Heart’ is an intimate storytelling experience.
3 pm and 6 pm (1 hour long)
Sunday – The Cosmonauts @ The Hope and Ruin
The Cosmonauts don’t exactly fit neatly into the fabric of their scene: too psychedelic to be punk, too punk to be psychedelic, and too absorbed in making their own brand of music to care.
Sunday – International Women’s Day Extravaganza @ The Brunswick
One weekend before their big celebration at the Dome, Brighton Women’s Centre take over the Brunswick for a night of Brighton and Hove’s finest singers and bands, all hosted by up-and-coming comedian Ali Macfarlan.
The organisers say: “All ages and genders are welcome, as we come together to celebrate the empowerment of women and enjoy some amazing live music!”
