Weekends Matter - The Finale: Gareth Emery (Digital Society)

We're changing our podcast. For over two years we've brought you fortnightly insights into what we feel is the very best in clubland, but as our Mixcloud series of mixes got more and more we will be making the podcast monthly and about all the types of events we do on Skiddle... keep an eye out for the new one when it launches in a couple of weeks.

We've still got time for one more of the existing format, so we've got together the very best of what's on offer this Bank Holiday weekend. 

The top five includes the prison based madness at A-Wing, Derrick Carter bringing the house thump to Brighton, DJ EZ rocking it for eight hours in London, Ram Records' D&B brilliance in Birmingham and the opening party for Space in Ibiza - all worthy choices if you're still undecided about what to do this weekend.

The final main event we've bestowed the podcast upon though will be Digital Society, where Gareth Emery brings his Drive tour to the O2 Academy in Leeds on Sunday 25th May, and it's him in hte mix here. 

There he'll be joined by Eddie Halliwell, Bryan Kearney, Craig Connelly and more. Head here for tickets.
