Never let it be said that we at Star Shaped are anything other than hopeless romantics… This Valentines, we give you, Britpoppers, the sixth band for Star Shaped Festival: the return after nigh on 20 years, completely exclusive (for these dates only!) shows, from… SLEEPER! It was only ever going to be at Star Shaped: The Home of Britpop.
Tickets will now shift pronto as this spreads across the internet, click the link and grab yours now! Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
We love you, Star Shapers! Thanks for continuing to make the club night and events what they are x
It will come as no surprise that Trainspotting has been a bit of an influence on us here at Star Shaped (ahem)… Well, the smack addiction notwithstanding.
Suffice to say, we’re a little bit excited about the forthcoming release of Trainspotting 2 and as it falls on our opening night at our BRAND NEW LONDON HOME of O2 Academy Islington, it would be rude not to…
So we present – Star Shaped Club: O2 Academy Isington Launch Party Trainspotting Special! Friday 27th January!
We’ll be playing every track from the soundtrack over the course of the night, complete with visuals from the film, loads of character masks for you all, a special Sickboy cocktail, and all the related 90s Britpop fun you’ve come to expect and love from the best club night in the country!
AND to follow it up, for those seeing the film the day after or who missed out on a ticket for Star Shaped OR who just want to do Star Shaped all over again (hardcore!), we’ll be repeating all the fun in Brighton on Saturday 28th January! Wow. These will be VERY special events. Our launch parties have ALL ended up as real ‘I was there!’ events, you really need not to be missing these. Tickets are now scarce (we announce/update our socials far more frequently, join us over on those!) so you’ll need to grab one of the last few QUICK if you want to coe and party with Mark Renton, Sickboy, Begbie, Spud and the gang!
Oh boy. It’s a big one…
Following the completely sold out inaugural Star Shaped Festival in 2016, this time Star Shaped Festival is coming to a city near you!
Remember the NME Brat Bus tours or when V was good? Great line ups moving across the country as one unstoppable force? Accredited by artists of the era as ‘The Home of Britpop’, the legendary national club night Star Shaped is bringing six wonderful Britpop bands to four cities, across four consecutive Saturdays! All the bands you loved under one roof!
This is not your standard festival. There are no tents, no overpriced food, no need to fund a whole weekends worth of drinking, just one perfect day/night. No being miles away from the bands, watching them on a little screen and having the sound blown around everywhere, just great venues, great bands, great atmosphere, and great DJs.
Needless to say, tickets for all cities will go QUICKLY! They go on sale tomorrow (Friday 2nd December) at 10am and can be purchased here:
Oh, London, what a treat…
Following his show stealing performance at Star Shaped Festival, Chris Helme returns with a special ‘For Star Shaped Only’ singalong acoustic set comprising purely of The Seahorses classics (and maybe a surprise cover or two). He absolutely blew us all away last time. Ask anyone who was there, this is not to be missed!
We’ll also be joined by the excellent Pete Donaldson of Absolute Radio 90s and XFM fame. Pete started his career as co-presenter on Lauren Laverne’s breakfast show (which was a pretty big deal for a massive fan of Britpop like Pete!) and has since worked with just about anyone who’s anyone. We particularly enjoyed his Liam Gallagher interview about the Idris Elba incident (oh, Liam!). Anyway, he’ll be treating us to an extra special set, hitting the decks just after Midnight.
On top of that we’ll have all the usual you expect from a Star Shaped Christmas party – visuals, artwork, mince pies, inflatables, our fabulous Xmas Fishbowl Cocktail and loads of other festive paraphernalia. Oh, and over 5 hours of the purest, sweetest Britpop!!
We’re expecting this to be another absolutely rammo one for which you’ll need a ticket to be sure of getting in but, oh, what’s this? They’re on sale NOW! GO! QUICK!
See you on the dance floor x
Blimey! What a few months! Sorry we’ve not updated the website much of late… Follow us on social media, it’s the future, don’t you know? We never had social media in 1995! What’s that? Oh, yeah, right, we never really had internet either… ANYWAY! Busy, busy: Completely sold out club nights up and down the country, Official Aftershow Parties For Shed Seven and The Bluetones feat. guest DJ sets from Rick Witter and Mark Morriss, oh and Star Shaped Festival! That was pretty special, huh? Well, there might just be an announcement about next years VERY soon… Watch this space (or follow us on social media! We’re much better at updating that! Promise!).
In the meantime, here’s a little clip of what you missed. Or, for you lucky ones who shared that experience, see if you can spot yourself singing along!
