Dance outside with your family to the greatest rave music in the beautiful Horniman Gardens surrounded by flowers, bubbles, balloons and explosions of colour. The award-winning Big Fish Little Fish family rave crew are taking over the Horniman Gardens with DJs Alex Paterson (The Orb) and drum and bass legend Aphrodite on the decks, plus BFLF residents Baker and Beale, with the absolute best in acid house, techno, drum n bass and more.
And it's not just music and dancing, there's food, bars, craft activities with Captain Cookie, and the glorious fun of a climactic colour powder throw.

If you want to dress up, the optional fancy dress theme is ‘festival flower power’.
During the colour throw, there will be areas you can stand away from it but please do bear in mind that although it is made from natural ingredients some colour powder may mark some fabrics.
Please note this event is outside so come along, embrace the festival atmosphere and dress appropriately for the weather on the day. The event will take place whatever the weather and refunds will not be offered in the case of bad weather.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
All ages welcome but activities are designed with 0-8 years olds in mind. Music is played at safe levels for everyone.
How loud will it be?
BFLF sets and monitors the volume using World Health Organisation guidelines - so that is it at a safe level for everyone, even the youngest babies, over the 4 hour duration of the event. Though quieter than at adult events, it is still loud enough to feel like you are at a club. Most parents do not use ear defenders on their children but if yours are particularly sensitive to noise or if you want them to nap then you might want to consider it.
Please note: a maximum of 3 children per one adult. A maximum of 4 adults per one child.
