Knees up Mother Brown are delighted to be joining up with Centreforce Radio in order to offer one lucky reader four tickets to this weekend's big event!

Centreforce FM was one of the capital's groundbreaking pirate radio stations back in the late 1980s, along with the likes of Kiss FM, before leaving the airwaves in 1991.

However having recently reformed, the team behind Centreforce are back on the airwaves and this weekend (Friday 23 February) are staging part 2 of their Warehouse Revival night, which is being held at The Steelyard in Allhallows Lane, EC3.



Running from 10pm to 6am, the night will feature the best house and club sounds from the late 1980s and early 1990s. And you can be there as a guest of KUMB and Centreforce - along with three friends - simply by answering the following question:

How long did it take London collective Bug Kann & The Plastic Jam to make their seminal 1991 rave hit? Was it...

a). Made In Two Minutes
b). Made In Ten Minutes
c). Made in Six Months

Send your answer along with your full name and telephone number to competitions@kumb.com before midday (12pm) on Thursday, 22 February to be in with a chance of winning the four tickets.

Alternatively, you can still purchase tickets for the big event - which features three rooms of music, four huge headliners (Majestic, Shades of Rhythm, Ramsey and MC Creed) along with all your Centreforce favourites - from ticketsource.co.uk, priced at just £15 each.




* Centreforce 88.3FM was founded on the 8th May 1989. This was the biggest and most influential underground radio station from the Acid House and Summer of Love era. It was the birthplace of the most influential DJs and record labels in dance music today.

Centreforce went down in the status books of dance music history. Having its roots in this scene, Centreforce would also become a place for listeners to find out where the next rave would be held.

The Government at the time outlawed these illegal raves and made life as hard as possible for the organisers, as such they couldn’t promote the location of the rave until the last minute and the pirates of the time - such as Centreforce - played their part in letting people know where the party was at.

There were plenty of reports at the time of large convoys of cars all driving to the locations of these raves, and thousands of people turning up to the larger events.
