London’s spectacular nighttime skyline will be visible for the first time from the ArcelorMittal Orbit.

Visitors to the twisting steel structure that towers over Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be able to see the capital’s iconic landmarks including Canary Wharf and the Shard for just three days this summer.

On Friday, August 8, new music will fill the 76m and 80m high platforms with live DJs playing an eclectic mix of tunes to a space theme. Tickers are £20.

On Friday, August 15, the UK’s tallest sculpture will host a silent disco with revellers able to text in requests as they flick between music channels. Tickets cost £17.50.

Finally, on Friday, August 22, the official launch party for East London Radio will see the station broadcast straight from the 114.5m summit with live DJ sets to listen to while enjoying the chill out area and views. Tickets cost £17.50.

Food and drinks will be on sale on each night.

Tickets are limited and can be booked online by arcelormittalorbit.com by calling 0333 800 8099 or visiting the office at the bottom of the Orbit.
