BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: ᴏᴠᴇʀɢʀᴏᴜɴᴅ started as a one-off acid themed special in March 2016. Every following instalment has hit capacity and we keep getting asked when the next one will be, so it’s with great excitement that we can finally announce that it will be taking place at Bongo for the first time!  If there’s one thing we know at ᴏᴠᴇʀɢʀᴏᴜɴᴅ, it’s acid. Starting out with spaced-out ambient electro, and then going via jackin’ acid house into acid techno and hardcore. We’ll be regularly posting a selection of our favourite acid trax on the event wall, which always ends up as a great resource for sharing and discovering hidden gems. Get involved.  L I N E U P : Wrisk [ᴏᴠᴇʀɢʀᴏᴜɴᴅ], Jai Dee [Tim & Barry / ᴏᴠᴇʀɢʀᴏᴜɴᴅ], Vera [EPIKA Edinburgh], Renáta [Rossz Records], Emilio [Disorder Edinburgh], Darío Fp [Unconscious Collective].  FACEBOOK

We're more than a little bit chuffed to be hosting this one at the Bongo.  Hard to believe Axel Boman hasn't played Edinburgh before.  Even more exciting that he will be making his debut here at the Bongo...
