On the main stage Oojami will be performing their tantalising fusion of Turkish-influenced beats, with support from Tough Love - the co-curators of White Mischief described by the Guardian as "the Afrobeat Scissor Sisters" - and Hooligan Night, the outrageous electro band fronted by delinquent showgirl (and founder of Glastonbury's Trash City area), Ruby Blues.
On the second stage, Ebony Bones, featured in every publication from I-D to Vogue, recipient of Radio 1's "hottest record in the world" and called "the most chattered-about act in London" by Time Out, will be stunning crowds with her outrageous diva presence and brilliant Bow Wow Wow-meets-Tom Tom Club tunes. Other bands include The Outside Royalty, originally hailing from Pennyslvania, whose "electro chamber rock" is reminiscent of Roxy Music and Pulp; there's also "petit gypsy swing orchestra" Ta Mere, who will rove around the building with spontaneous musical encounters.
In between the music there are death-defying vaudeville antics, with Mam'zelle Fifi performing an aerial rope act high above the audience's heads; Miss Behave, Guinness World Record holder and one of the world's last surviving female sword swallowers; Victorian sketch comedy troupe The Penny Dreadfuls, stars of their own show on BBC7 and at the Edinburgh Festival; brilliant "cheeky jazz" with ukelele and trombone from Tricity Vogue and her Slinktet; acerbic singer/ compere Dusty Limits; and the Hall of Oracles, hosted by Ophelia Bitz, which will feature Spanish snake-charmer Seffi, who will be appearing with a live serpent.
Finally there will be dancing late into the night, and White Mischief has hand-picked some of London's finest DJs: Todd Hart, of the Dalston Oxfam Shop blog and Durr, will be playing an all-African set; Scratchy, resident DJ at Gypsy Hotel and formerly tour DJ with The Clash, will play "the rock and the roll of the world"; the divine Lady Kamikaze of the Black Cotton and Lady Luck clubs will spin vintage jazz and blues; and there's also musician/DJs The Broken Hearts (Rakehell's Revels, Loss); dysfunctional Dandy Dickon Edwards of the band Fosca; and Theodora Goes Wild with Marshall Lawman (Shugapush, Nashville on Thames.)
Dressing up is not at all compulsory, but certainly encouraged - and there are prizes given at random to the sensationally-attired. A full list of dress-up inspirations is available on the White Mischief website.
