Final weekend action: crews from Brighton, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Herne Bay and, er, London, converge on London for parties in pubs and warehouses. Pictures include parents, sunbathers, James Brown, giant DJs, smaller Djs, dancing, fluorescent policemen, crutches and escalators (thanks to Mikkel and Moritz for supplying extra photo strength)
