You've come a long way, baby: Fatboy Slim to play parliament

By Ian Dunt

Fatboy Slim will make history when he becomes the first DJ to play in the House of Commons in March for the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Foundation.

The event will feature the iconic DJ as a support act for the winner of House The House, a competition encouraging young people to engage in their local communities through the medium of dance music.

"I’m a proud supporter of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and the work that it’s doing with House The House. Music is a huge part of my life and to give something back in this way is amazing", said Fatboy Slim.

The gig will take place on the terrace, where MPs and associates often socialise after working hours during summer months.

House The House is hosted by Hove and Portslade MP Mike Weatherly, who is an enthusiastic proponent of the benefits of engaging in music.

"House The House is giving young people the chance to have a voice, to be recognised for their endeavours and to engage with their communities to create change from the grassroots up.

"Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and House The House are great examples of what the whole music industry can achieve in an innovative way", he said.

The competition, also handed the winner an Audio Production degree scholarship worth £20,000.
