Alan Fitzpatrick, Bicep, DJ Hype, Artwork and Todd Terje are amongst those appearing in the final autumn-winter run, with Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor playing a Prince set on 1st December with disco legend Nicky Siano also on the bill.

Back in September, Geordie DJ Patrick Topping teamed up with MiNT to take on infamous Leeds pub crawl, the Otley Run — or as he calls it, the Topply Run!
Hitting the road in a VW campervan with a crate of beer, a cheeky smile and a set of CDJs, Topping played four secret locations, including a fancy dress shop, a barber's and an inflatable igloo, before arriving at Mint Club for his final show.
The run took place during Freshers Week, so as you can imagine, things get a tad boozy! Check out the trip via the video below.

Come the end of September, even the most robust, diehard ravers reluctantly accept that the UK festival season has finally run its course. Up North though, they’ve got a different agenda going on; earlier this month DJ Mag headed to Mint Festival — a two-day extravaganza dedicated to showcasing a deluge of heavyweight electronic music artists amidst the picturesque grounds of Weatherby Racecourse near Leeds.
