Lord Mayor holding a charity rave to celebrate Fair Saturday

Get your glow sticks and white gloves ready, because the Lord Mayor of Cardiff is holding a rave to celebrate Fair Saturday Cardiff - a global movement founded in Bilbao that celebrates the power of the arts, culture and heritage to change the world. 

All profits from the event, which is being promoted by The DEPOT, will go to the Lord Mayor's two chosen charities, Welsh Women's Aid and BAWSO. 

The rave which will take place in the Old Library on The Hayes on November 30th, will include DJ sets from: stalwart of the Cardiff dance-music scene, Craig Bartlett; Esyllt of long running club-night Dirty Pop; Nick Saunders founder of club night Shangri-la; Cardiif-based collective, Ladies of Rage, and a special guest spot from the man with the gold chains, the Lord Mayor himself. 

Lord Mayor, Dan De'Ath: "I said when I became Lord Mayor that I wanted to do things a bit differently, and I think I can safely say that this is the first time any Mayor of Cardiff has hosted a rave. 

"Music's always been a big part of my life, so to be able to use it as a means to raise funds for two charities, who do some really important work to help women facing incredibly difficult and distressing circumstances is fantastic. 

"It's going to be a real party - Cardiff's such a creative city and there's going to be lots going to mark the city's first involvement with the Fair Saturday movement so I'm hoping we're going to see lots of people out, enjoying some of the fantastic events and rounding things off with a night dancing for some great causes."
