2012 has been quite a year for Just Jack and to top it all last night they picked up the Best Club Night award at this year’s DJ Mag Awards, nicely completing what has been an already amazing 2012 on a fabulous high.
Over 2012 Just Jack played host to some amazing parties, upping sticks from Bristol and making their grand entrance into the world of festivals. Travelling across the globe to appear at a whole host of events including Hideout Festival in Croatia, Farr Festival in Hertfordshire and London’s Eastern Electrics, they’ve expanded their horizons to bring their passion for house music to a whole new crowd of people. The likes of Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Dyed Soundorom, Craig Richards and Mr. G have set the beat along the way, marking 2012 as a landmark year for the brand.

They’re joined by residents Tom Rio and Dan Wild, who will bring their renowned track selecting skills to the fray.
The Tunnel is to be taken over by good friends at Troublevision, with the London titans taking us on a trip to the underground with Theo Parrish and Marcellus Pittman.
