In a surprising last ditch attempt to secure a larger proportion on the student vote share the Conservative Party this afternoon announced that Michael Gove will be performing at this year’s In:Motion series.

The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs will be headlining the main room with a three hour extended set delivering what the cabinet have promised to be, ‘a mind altering onslaught of industrial techno’.

The Labour Party have criticised this decision, branding it a ‘tragic attempt to win over a generation who feel totally disengaged with the current political elite’.

However, sources from inside Westminster assure The Whip that Mr Gove’s appreciation of ‘brutally minimalist and numbingly repetitive’ electronic dance music is exactly what the younger voters want.

The MP for Surrey Heath joins the long list of household names including Bicep, Ben UFO and Daniel Avery in the famous multi-event dance feature.

The Whip spoke to Economics and Management student George, 20.

‘I’ve been following him on SoundCloud for a while now, kind of before he got big actually. It’s basically Tech House Swing,’ he began, ‘it’s pretty raw. I rate him.’

But some other DJs have come forward.

One, Jamie Demack, branded the event a ‘total joke,’ he continues, ‘he’s not even that good. He just presses space bar quite a lot and occasionally yells ‘can you feel this bass?’ Still, at least he’s making the effort, in a way it’s quite endearing. He just really doesn’t get it at all.’
