Series one was launched in September 2014 and ran through until 31 December with the likes of Chase & Status, Nina Kraviz, Skream, Hot Since 82, Annie Mac, Jackmaster, Gorgon City, Waze & Odyssey, Kink, Subb-an and many more.
Series two kicked off in January 2015 and ran until May and included sold-out shows from Duke Dumont, B.Traits, Hannah Wants and Mele, along with a mighty B2B night with Eats Everything and Green Velvet.
Series three began in the later part of 2015 and saw the likes of Joris Vroon, Route 94, Tale of Us, Ben UFO, Floating Points, Hot Flush with Scuba, Pan-Pot and so much more.
In 2016 series four saw Xplicit’s 11th Birthday at the Liquid Rooms with Calyx & TeeBee and DJ Zinc.
