Intro: Summer may be over but XXL’s calendar continues to hot up this autumn/winter. Here’s what’s coming up under those hallowed arches over the next few weeks, plus we give you some dates for your diary including XXL’s New Year’s Eve celebrations starring Moto Blanco.
XXL Lumberjack with DJ Sin Morera
Saturday 14 October
Autumn has arrived, which gives you the perfect excuse to don your best plaid shirts at XXL Lumberjack next Saturday. Hitting the decks for this brute fest is none other than DILF DJ Sin Morera, who’ll be turning his brand of hot house music for a crowd of bouncing bears and blokes. There’ll also be pop, R&B and much more in the Fur Lounge from residents David Robson and Joe Egg.
XXL Bear with DJ Fat Tony
Saturday 21 October
Fast becoming an XXL favourite, superstar DJ Fat Tony is back at Pulse on Saturday 21 October, sandwiched between main room residents Paul Morrell and Alex Logan, so expect big tracks and feisty anthems to shake your moneymakers to on the podiums. Plus, as part of Do It London’s latest sexual health campaign, members of the programme’s outreach team will be in the house offering condoms, information and more.
XXL Halloween with Hoxton Whores
Saturday 28 October
Halloween comes round once a year meaning come the last Saturday of this month Pulse will be full of bloodied bears, wild werewolves, deranged otters and loads more ghouls and ghosts for you to sink your teeth into. And if that wasn’t enough flesh for you to feast on, special guest DJs and XXL favourites Hoxton Whores will be in the main room for your aural pleasure.
XXL Guy Fawkes with DJ Said Alimirzoev

Fireworks and pyrotechnics are part and parcel of every Saturday at XXL, but come Guy Fawkes night you can expect even more of a sizzling show when special guest DJ Said Alimirzoev joins residents Paul Morrell and Alex Logan for a special night of big room anthems.
