Patrick Topping presents Alternative Otley Run in Leeds

All roads lead to Mint Festival in Leeds on September 24th, especially for house star Patrick Topping, who will be making a special trip through the city on the 19th September with a full and crazy crew of psychedelic hippies in tow.

Taking the form of the famous Otley Run, this warm up event will find Hot Creations, Truesoul producer and Paradise resident Patrick Topping set off from somewhere in Leeds then ending up somewhere else in the city five hours later. He will be getting around in a specially Elrow branded VW Camper Van oozing 60s hippies vibes and trippy psychedelic colours and have his own costume plus and a loads of other props, glitter, wigs and various bits to hand out to those who join in. The idea is that he will end up like the Pied Piper with a merry band of party people all gallivanting through Leeds with stops at various different landmarks in the city.

Patrick will be playing at 5 secret locations between 1pm and 9pm which will all be free entry, ranging small 40 capacity venues to 550 capacity.

Patricks route will start around the Leeds Uni area at lunchtime, then will include 2 venues in Headingley, 1 in Hyde Park and finishing up in the city centre at 7pm.

The whole event will be tagged with the special #topplyrun #mintfest hashtag so people can follow the shenanigans there and find out where they can meet up with the crew. Locations will also be announced on the day through Patrick and Mint Fest’s own social media channels so there is no reason to miss out.

Those that can’t make it to Leeds on the day will be able to watch the all the fun as it will be streamed live online through Chew.TV – or on demand after the event. Chew is the live streaming platform for DJs and fans of electronic music. It connects over 200,000 DJs, music producers and personalities with a engaged, audience in over 190 countries.

Of course, this is all a bit of fun foreplay before Mint Festival take over the fantastic Tetley complex with its usual and fearless exploration of electronic music. Over 5 separate arenas there will be performances from the likes of Adam Beyer and Jamie Jones, Skream and Loco Dice, Steve Lawler and Kerri Chandler, Craig David, Ms. Dynamite and Nastia amongst many others.
