We are really fond of a Bank Holiday party, especially with the extra time to recover from a mammoth dancing session...

So, without further ado, we have put together the best parties around the United Kingdom for your consideration.

The Rainbow Pub in Birmingham will be closing it's doors for the last time on Monday 29th May. The pub will be teaming up with sister venues The Courtyard and The Cellar to finish things off properly with a special three day party.

Rainbow regular FACE will be taking over the venues on Friday night, followed by new night HOME on the Saturday. (Praslesh, Sonja Moonear, Isherwood)

BELOW have the honour of playing the last few records in their long term home, revelling in sunrise and sunlight before the party finishes at 9am Monday morning.

Here's a mix from long-term resident Adam Shelton from the 8TH birthday.

Electric Frog and Pressure Riverside Festival are back for a right old carry on by the River Clyde.

The Weekender, based at the futuristic venue the Riverside Museum, will be hosting the an impressive selection of artists ranging from Sven Väth to Hunee and all in between (Nina Kraviz, Slam, DJ Koze, Groove Armada, Loco Dice and so many more).

With weekend tickets at just £80 and a host of after parties around the city, we recommend this one highly!

Love Saves The Day returns for their 6th weekend in Eastville Park, Bristol, boasting an inflatable church, a cocktail caravan and a cosmic laundrette.

The truly eclectic 2 day festival was the by-product of a vision for the alternative.

On the Saturday, disco does right in the form of Hunee and Move D. Little Dragon Crazy, P and Andrew Weatherall are also part of the well engineered and diverse day. Fat Freddy’s Drop heads things up on the Sunday.
