Azealia Banks throwing Mermaid Ball at London Aquarium

Gigs & Festivals

Azealia Banks

Yeah… so as above, Sam Cam’s rumoured favourite rapper Azealia Banks will throw the first ever British example of her ‘Mermaid Ball’ concert/costume gala at the London Aquarium, which isn’t to be mistaken for Club Aquarium in Shoreditch. No, this is the actual London Aquarium, a not especially subtle concession to the party’s under-the-sea theme.

It’s all happening on 13 Oct, and should – as per Mermaid Ball tradition – feature live sets by Banks and special guests, who in the past have included Robyn, Charli XCX, Rye Rye and Maluca, plus plenty of vogueing. Buy tickets here.

And for hints of what the night might sound like, refer to this mixtape:
