Roll up, roll up, as the capital’s favourite & UK’s biggest fancy dress spectacle hits town for Festival season with its Summer Festival event hosted at new location, Proud2. With the sun shining and festival fields and urban spaces calling, Fancy transform Proud2 with its amazing spectacle and sounds that compliment its uniquely dressed party crowd.

From the dazed n’ confused, to the Loveboxers and old school ravers, anyone for tennis or croquet on the lawn? Hawaii beach paradise or that fancy dress up idea that you’ve just been hit with. “Anything goes” is the Fancy mantra in the dress stakes, so come as you like but be ready to party.

The Fancy Summer Festival is a multi-themed and crowd hopping event that brings together many of the capital’s most colourful and hedonistic party crowds. Headlined by uber-blogged and Twittered London three piece, Is Tropical, whose new single “The Greeks” has had over a million hits on you tube, fire up the decks with a fusion of NYC basement disco, full on indie rave through to “tracks for a banging hell ride in Estonia.” Signed to French music and fashion label Kitsune (Digitalism/Two Door Cinema Club), Is Tropical are about to release their debut album and catch them as they light up the Fancy dancefloor

Flanked by VJ/DJ, Beat ä Maxx, this is next level turntablism cutting together buzzing club bangers, pop hits and some of the most memorable tunes and classics from the past. Topped off with state-of-the-art video technology, Maxx also mashes the tunes together with film and TV clips, making exclusive video remixes and ingenious video scratching that pushes video DJing to the limit.
