That's right - it's now been two years since The Refuge opened their doors in the Principal Hotel (then the Palace) and it's been 2 years full of fucking great parties, some amazing food, top bevvies and even the odd exhibition or two. So to celebrate this occasion they've roped in a massive roster of DJ's and live performers for 3 days and 3 nights of bottle pooping, glitter raining mayhem. Here's what's going on...
