Lily Allen, Katy B, Skream and Goldie were just some of the performers as a host of UK clubnights took the London Eye.

Each capsule on the wheel hosted one of 30 of the UK’s most celebrated club nights, including Wiley’s Eskimo Dance, Boiler Room, Bugged Out! and Warehouse Project as part of Red Bull Revolutions in Sound.

In Lily Allen’s pod, the pop star partied alongside Mark Ronson and gave the first live performance of her controversy courting new single 'Hard Out Here'.

Katy B performed on a small bench in the centre of the Rinse FM capsule, with Skream backing her up on the decks as she played tracks from her forthcoming new album 'Little Red', which is due for release next year (2014).

In the Eskimo Dance pod meanwhile, Boy Better Know was represented by MCs Skepta, Jammer, JME, Frisco and Shorty. The grime collective challenged the small twelve person audience to rave harder than any other pod – encouraging the crowd to taunt guests in the pods next door when ever they became visible. "We rave hard in the pistachio nut!" became Skepta’s rallying call for the night.??

Other artists to appear on the line-up included Erol Alkan, Bok Bok, Girl Unit, DJ EZ, Richie Hawtin, Gilles Peterson, DJ Luck & MC Neat, Goldie, Rudimental and Ben UFO.
