The Insomniac's Ball is a strange one. You'd think it'd be something full of plush beds with soothing ocean sounds playing while the walls cycle through calming colours. Either that or just an all-night Coldplay gig.
Virtual Festivals have a somewhat different interpretation, though. It's a mini-festival split between five rooms - three featuring live music, two featuring more of a club vibe. The line-up looks a cracker, especially as it gives us an excuse to put up a photo of the lovely Pipettes. Other bands of note are British Sea Power, Battle, Art Brut, Vincent Vincent & The Villains.
The Insomniac's Ball takes place at SE One on 13th April and tickets go on sale on Thursday 16th Feb via Ticketweb. Tickets start at £19.50 but there's also a VIP ticket available which gives you free drinks, promo goodies and, more importantly, allows you access to a room where all the bands and DJs will be hanging out (when they're not playing). Unfortunately for Londonist, The Pipettes' restraining order against us prevents us from taking up this special ticket but don't let that stop you, if you fancy shelling out £60.
