Days Like This (DLT) started from humble origins, a small brunch hosting around 200 people at the Luxford in South London.

Now, founders Michael, Bosun, Ife and Anthony host some of the most highly anticipated events of the year, having sold out over 35 events in total in the UK, Nigeria, Ghana and Ibiza.

Earlier this year, they took the the sounds and rhythm of Afrobeats, Dancehall and more to the coasts of Malta, with headliners Wizkid, Rema and Shenseea

DLT is all about the Black experience and providing a space for that to truly thrive, so with the holiday blues in full swing, they brought their infamous brunch back to where it all started, London.

Offering a delectable brunch with a bottomless option, DLT started their day party right and kicked off their partnership with popular drink brand, Hennessy, embracing every inch of Black culture. 

Throughout the day, a number of DJs, including DJ Davada and DJ L.A.J were in rotation, blasting out the latest tracks from the likes of Burna Boy and BNXN as well as classics from Beenie Man and Ashanti to every corner of Greenwich’s Studio 338.

The venue is huge, spanning across two rooms and an outdoor terrace, but DLT’s attendees make it seem snug, selling out the event and maxing the 1.6k capacity.

Rumours of DLT being “too lit” were confirmed, as no matter where you were, the party followed. Out on the terrace, party-goers made the most of the London sun and host Tiny Man Music brought along the soundtrack. 

A pop-up stand offering plantain bites, dirty fries, burgers, jerk chicken and more added to the summer vibe and brought the extra flavour to make the overall experience complete.

DLT are undeniably the saviours of London’s party scene, and it comes with no surprise that the best events are those that are overflowing with culture.

With a success rate that London clubs can only dream of, DLT tickets sell quickly the second they drop, so make sure you’re ready when the next event is announced. You won’t want to miss it.

The next DLT event will be taking over Horniman Museum & Gardens in Lewisham on the 13th August. Find out more here.
