Our Guide to OUTLAND London

OUTLAND 1920x1080 spacemaster

By Jack

With just a week to go till OUTLAND London opens its doors to the synth-loving public, we take a look at the biggest synthwave event of the year.

OUTLAND 1

Where would synthwave be without Drive? It doesn’t bear thinking about, and Nicholas Winding-Refn’s neon-lit masterpiece will be screening at OUTLAND.

Doors open at 7:00pm, with last admittance being 7.30. All being well the film will begin at 7.45. Plenty of time to perfect your stony Gosling expression.

OUTLAND 2

There will be an intermission after the screening before ‘A Moment in Time with GUNSHIP’ at 9.25pm. This is being kept fairly under-wraps but one assumes it will be a rundown of GUNSHIP’s music, something we are all for. That debut album was a screamer.

OUTLAND 3

OUTLAND promises ‘retro cocktails’ including ‘Deckard’s Cocktail’ and ‘Tannhauser Blue’. The precise make-up of these drinks is being kept a secret. Is Deckard a replicant? What’s in the retro cocktails? Some questions should never be answered.

OUTLAND 4

There are some fantastic synth artists playing throughout the night.

These are, in order:

80’s Stallone (9.55pm)

NINA (10.25pm)

Sunglasses Kid (10.55pm)

Neon Lines (11.40pm)

Timecop 1983 (12.30am)

OUTLAND 5

OUTLAND promises some fairly bangin’ merchandise. From the artist tables as well as some retro bling (that shutter-sun Star Wars tee though…) there should be plenty for those wanting to pick up some retro wares.
