Guys, take a rest from queuing for a 10 quid drink this evening and stay in to watch Channel 4's live, one-off House Party broadcastBasically, it's a stellar line-up of international DJs - like Annie Mac, A-Track, Soul II Soul (shouts to Jazzie B) and Grandmaster Flash - playingfor six hours straight, with no ad breaks and zero commentary.

To warm you up, there'll be a two-hour documentary all about the fine art of raving, presented by Idris Elba. Kind of like that hip-hop one back in the summer that everyone thought would be mad shitty and was actually really good. Except this one will feature the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong and, umm, notorious raver, former Home Secretary Michael Howard.

The event is all in aid of celebrating the legendary 1992 rave at Castlemorton in Malvern. 40,000 people attended the jumbo-party, which police struggled to to shut down as it raged on for an entire week. As a result, the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994 was drawn up to stop people having fun large-scale illegal festivals. But tonight will prove that YOU CAN'T STOP US HAVING FUN IN OUR HOUSES.

So tune in from midnight tonight (GMT) and for more info, go here.
