That Lib Dem Disco set list in full

It is almost time for the Lib Dem Disco. A little bird has let us have details of the tunes our intrepid DJs will be playing.

Here is how the night will unfold

Of course, these are just the tunes. The success of a DJ set is all about the performance.

In the meantime, I have my dancing shoes on.

10:40 Tim Farron

Last Nite – the Strokes
Rock the Casbah – The Clash
This Charming Man – The Smiths
Girls on Film – Duran Duran

Have you got your Lib Dem Disco tickets yet?

In recent years, the hottest place to be on the Saturday night of Conference is the Lib Dem Disco. This year it’s back for the fourth time.

This year, the organisers are being uncharacteristically cagey about their line-up, tantalising us by drip-feeding out the contestants who will be competing for the prized accolade of Best DJ. The title has been won for the last two years in fantastic style by Jo Swinson. The last time I spoke to her about it she was adamant she wasn’t going to go for the hat-trick.

So far, we know that Lib Dem Newbies co-founder and force of nature Daisy Benson and Lib Dem Peer and former MEP Sarah Ludford will be taking their turns at the decks.

A sneak peak at the Lib Dem Disco set list

Disco 2014It’s just a couple of hours until the event that’s rapidly becoming the only place to be on Saturday night at Conference: the Lib Dem Disco run by Cambridge Liberal Democrats.

I will brag for the rest of my life about how I beat Tim Farron two years ago. Who would have foreseen that. I was second only to the mighty Alistair Carmichael.

Anyway, tonight’s DJs are include a knight, Sir Simon Hughes, the Lib Dems’ only cabinet minister, Kirsty Williams,  a councillor known for her ability to hold off a massive challenge from Labour, Abi Bell and the defending champion Jo Swinson.

Strictly always puts up the dances and music in advance of the show. I asked the disco organisers very nicely if they’d let me have a sneak peak of tonight’s set list.. Ok, I admit it, I had to beg.

It’s coming up under the cut, so if you want it all to be a complete surprise, do not go there.
