To celebrate Crossfire’s 10th Anniversary of supplying unadulterated malarkey to the UK’s skateboard and music scenes, London’s most raucous Halloween party, The Crossfire Halloween Massacre in association with Vans returns to London on Friday 28th October 2011.
Those who know how to party hard will witness an evening full of explosive music and skateboard art at Hidden club, 100 Tinmouth Street, Vauxhall, London, SE11 5EQ. 3 rooms will be alive with a stunning line up of dubstep, electro, drum and bass, punk and metal DJs as part of the Found Series.
Crossfire has announced today that CEREBRAL BALLZY are this year’s special guests who will play live. The 5-piece hardcore band from Brooklyn will bring their destructive hardcore to the Vans room and have stated today that: "We’re playing the Crossfire party, come, there will be blood." Expect total carnage.
This year, the Crossfire Halloween Massacre will host the crème of bass and dubstep DJs on the night. Trouble and Bass trio TOMB CREW will be smashing the beats in the Front Magazine room with ILLAMAN MC on mic duties to kick start the night, followed by Black Butter Records’ producer and one of London’s most prolific bass scene DJs RACK N RUIN. 2 members of the mighty ENTER SHIKARI will also join the party and drop filthy dubstep on the decks, so lookout for ROUT and SGT ROLFY who will be followed by Brighton’s eccentric bass leader, HIGH RANKIN performingwith vocalist TIGERLIGHT.
The Vans room will also deliver the very best classic rock, metal, punk rock and hip hop all night long courtesy of Total Rock’s TALITA TWOSHOES who returns for her 4thyear at this event. Following their latest sets at the Kerrang! Awards and Reading Festival, Crossfire founders James Sherry & Zac Slack will be rolling out the CROSSFIRE SOUND SYSTEM with upbeat party tracks followed by the one and only STEREO:TYPE. XFM’s most requestedmash-up DJ of all time willbe unleashing a fresh, explosive 2 hour mash-up set of some of the best tracks out there, especially for this night. This room also now welcomes SWEET DREAMS and LAST RESORT DJ’s who will bring the finest hip hop and rock on the night.
To celebrate the 10th year of supporting the UK skateboard scene, Crossfire has invited 12 of London’s most exciting skateboard illustrators for a one off art exhibition called TOXIC WASTERS! Each artist will submit a limited edition, 3 colour screen print sticker design that will be exhibited alongside the original artwork in the venue. Only 100 of these sticker sheets will be printed, for sale online. Look out for a room full of deadly toxic nuclear mutated stickers designed by Paul Parker, Mr Gauky, Kyle Plats, Sam Taylor, Matthew Bromley, French, Stu Smith, Fos, Craig Scott, Dan Singer, Paddy Jones and Tom Slater.
