The ticket-only event started at 7pm and finished at 11.30pm, and delivered a range of music genres including club classics, deep/soulful house, hard house, old school, and soul.
A huge crowd turned up and got their dancing shoes on whilst enjoying the vibrant sounds from the different acts who took to the stage on the night.
