Okay, so it's not yet been confirmed whether Jim West (desperado, rough rider, no you don't want nada) will be showing up on The Bund this weekend, but what we do know is that Bar Rouge will be throwing a big wild west-themed anniversary celebration for their 13th birthday, just in case you've not noticed from the lovely wallpaper surrounding this site.

Not your thing? How about some renowned reggae selectors, an Anticon alt-hop hero, a rising Japanese starlet, a (musical) super sharp shooter or a Horse Meat Disco? That's all coming your way this weekend and if you're still not satisfied, well there's always tip top EDMer Tiesto in town too.
