A shubz, a motive, or, if you’re trying to placate your parents, “a small gathering” – whatever you might call a house party, getting trashed in someone’s gaff is one of life’s simplest pleasures. For all the talk and excitement of clubs reopening after the pandemic, we realised we missed sardining into a kitchen just as much as getting dressed up and going out-out. Sure, going to Pickle Factory is cool, but how about raiding someone’s actual jar of gherkins at 3am and passing out in their dad’s favourite armchair?
Which got us thinking: why don’t we throw our own house party to celebrate the launch of THE FACE’s latest issue, which has bubblegrunge internet sensation Beabadoobee on the cover, with her pals, her record label Dirty Hit and a little help from Levi’s? We usually go with our first idea, so that’s exactly what we’ve done. The alt-pop icon is heading up the best bash of the summer with a couple of notable friends (stay tuned for the full line-up – it’s a good ‘un), in honour of celebrating our latest issue in style.
The accounts department might need a stiff drink after seeing this, but, essentially, we’ve blown the budget and got the keys to a mega-mansion in an undisclosed London location. We’ll be gatecrashing the house for one night only, turning it into a psychedelic, phantasmagoric wonderland inspired by Bea’s trippy new album, Beatopia. She’ll be joined by some of her mates and we’re partnering with Levi’s for the occasion to celebrate their 501 jeans. And, truth be told, they know how to shake a leg or two.
Sorry, you missed the flight to Beatopia! Entry to win a ticket is now over — if you submitted your deets please keep an eye on your inbox — we’ll be letting you know if you made it soon.
