What the bands say about Propaganda
Dan Smith, Bastille ‘DJing for Propaganda was genuinely one of the most fun nights we’ve ever had. There were so so many people in the room, everyone kept shouting ‘Play Pompeii!’ We’d love to DJ again soon.
Gary Powell, Libertines ‘We had an absolutely amazing time playing for Propaganda as part of a DJ tour, the crazy crowds, the amazing music, stage invasions, late night hospital visits, early morning McDonalds trips and hanging out with the Propaganda crew. It was A LOT of fun’
Jon McClure, Reverend and the Makers ‘I’ve enjoyed many a Propaganda, I’ve even had a bounce on a bouncy castle in a Propaganda... come to think of it there’s not much I haven’t done at one of the nights! Propaganda is about one of the only places left where you can scream along to the words of your favourite songs in your mates face.’
Jamie Maccoll, Bombay Bicycle Club ‘It’s a little hazy when I think back on DJing for Propaganda, we’ve done quite a few now. Let’s just say we always have a very good time...’
