Sigma
The popular club is pulling out all the stops as it continues to bring in the new party season in style. Having previously played at the beach venue on New Year’s Eve 2017, Sigma returns for another magical set of big drum and bass beats. Duo Cameron James Edwards and Joseph Aluin Lenzie are famous across the globe for their dancefloor-enticing tunes and have collaborated with the likes of Paloma Faith, Ella Henderson, Rita Ora, Labrinth and many more, so basically, you’ll be in safe hands. Some of their biggest tracks include the thumping sounds of Nobody to Love and Glitterball in recent years, and hot summer 2018 hit Anywhere. Tickets are free for the gig, but get down there early to avoid disappointment. This is just a small slice of the superstar acts coming up at Zero Gravity, we can’t wait to see what’s coming up in the coming months.
