Next week I’ll be holding a big pop bash to celebrate 10 years of This Must Be Pop! It will take place from 9pm on 28th June, upstairs at Salvador & Amanda in Holborn, central London. It’s free to attend, but I recommend you join the event on Facebook to guarantee entry. Here’s what you can expect:


Joining us on the night to play a selection of pop favourites old and new are:

MNEK – He’s co-produced a hit for The Saturdays, featured on a no.1 by Duke Dumont, and he’s one of the most sought after UK pop writer/producers, even though he’s only 18! Check out MNEK’s Soundcloud for a taste of his talents, including his brilliant refixes of songs by Kelis and J-Lo.

Scandipop – is one of the best pop blogs around, and has hosted some amazing gigs and club nights over the years. Now Karl Batterbee, the man behind it all, is back in London after three years DJing in Stockholm’s top gay clubs. He’ll be playing a mix of Scandi and non-Scandi pop at our party.

Alex Bean – Alex is a pop crusader in the music industry. She was the label manager of 679 and now 37 Adventures, and has worked with acts including Marina & the Diamonds, Little Boots and Basement Jaxx. She’s a big fan of the Smash Hits era and was recently spotted boogieing to 5ive at The Big Reunion!

DJ Jon – This Must Be Pop Live’s resident DJ Jon always wows us with his poptastic choices, whether it’s 90s R&B or crazy pop mashups. He’s also DJed at London’s Playhouse club and the Popjustice Christmas Party, and he’ll be my co-host on the night, helping to keep things running smoothly.

YOU? – Stay tuned to find out how you could win the chance to join our fab DJ line-up! No skills needed, just impeccable taste.


Party bags – It wouldn’t be a party without party bags! The first 20 people to show up who have clicked attending on Facebook will get a selection of poptastic party treats.

Free drinks – Arrive early and you’ll get a free drink on me – it’s the least I can do for This Must Be Pop’s biggest supporters!

Free cake – Birthday parties need cake, of course!! If you’re with us at midnight, you can enjoy some tasty birthday cake with your cocktails.

I’m excited! Are you excited? If so, get over to Facebook to register that excitement, and I’ll see you at Salvador & Amanda next week!
