Midsummer Ball tonight!

It’s been North Cyprus’ biggest annual club event for years and tonight the London rapper DJ Ironik will top the billing as thousands of revellers are expected to descend on the Girne’s Colosseum for the 10th “Midsummer Ball”.

Ironik, who’s had three UK top ten hits including Tiny Dancer which featured Chipmunk and Elton John, headlines. He’s joined by Rinse FM’s Sam Supplier and MC Dadge who’s warmed up the crowds for superstars such as Nelly and Flo-Rida. There’s a special PA from Moy Moy – one of the UK’s hottest new singers whose vocal style straddles R&B, Reggae and Hip Hop effortlessly. They line-up alongside residents Ramsey and Fen, Original Memzee, and local favourite D-Loose from Dream Live FM.

Borne out of the UK Garage scene, The Mid Summer Ball (MSB) is an annual celebration of British dance music. Its first outing was in Lion’s Garden, Mağusa, back in 2005 when legendary Turkish Cypriot DJing duo Ramsey and Fen, together with friend and fellow DJ Jason Kaye, aimed to bring a slice of Ayia Napa over into North Cyprus with a phenomenal line-up.
