Channel 4 is to broadcast a six-hour ad-free ‘House Party’ to celebrate the rave genre.
Part of the London 2012 Festival, the show will call upon the likes of Grandmaster Flash and Annie Mac to “turn the TV into the ultimate DJ booth,” The Independent reports.
In an attempt to replicate a real club, there will be no commentary or interruptions in the broadcast and viewers will be able to make requests for tunes via social media.
The show, airing from midnight August 24, will not be repeated or made available on 4OD.
It marks the 20th anniversary of 1992’s free rave at Castlemorton near Malvern in Worcestershire, which boasted attendance figures around 40,000.
Channel 4's arts commissioner Tabitha Jackson said that 2012 was "the perfect summer for this television event.
"Perhaps the most radically innovative element of the night is that, in direct contrast to the new on-demand TV landscape, House Party is a genuine one-off,” she added. “It will not be repeated and it will not be available on 4oD.
“Like all the best club nights and parties if you want to be there you have to turn up."
