If you have a friend who hate surprise parties, perhaps you should let them sit this one out. For the rest of you who are unafraid of the unknown, The Experiment is back. Previously being held across multiple days, this year everything is being thrown in together and left to unfold across eight hours of open-minded enquiry into music and art.

From the evening of Friday 11 August, Whammy Bar – below the iconic tiled floor of St Kevin's Arcade – will become a space dedicated to finding out how people react to one another's creative pursuits. Brought to life by the mad scientists over at Monster Valley, The Experiment 2017 is an event for those who believe the periodic table should be revised to include the elements of interactive art, dance, spoken word and of course music. In all their various forms.
