Shindig is undoubtedly a great bastion of northern nightlife has announced the line-up for their huge 22nd Anniversary on Bank Holiday Sunday 4th May in Newcastle.
Shindig focuses on innovative house and techno, and over the last few years have found a new home in the city’s raw industrial space Warehouse34 located in Hoults Yard, Newcastle. ByDay and ByNight for a 14- hour session and will start at Spillers Wharf, with electronic music’s most iconic names across an impressive festival site.
Revered Cocoon figurehead and living legend Sven Vath, Hot Creations head honcho Jamie Jones, man of the moment Hot Since 82, the epochal Marc “MK” Kinchen, DJ talent Nina Kraviz, dynamic party starters and arguably the hottest DJ duo in the world right now The Martinez Brothers, jazz-meets-techno virtuoso Guti, Catz ‘N Dogz and wAFF as well as local talent Cristoph, head the bill during the day.
ByNight, the event continues at top pitch inside Warehouse34 with Desolat label boss Loco Dice and Robert Dietz taking you through to the early hours, this very limited 1000 capacity ByNight After show sold out in just under 4 hours of going on sale.
“Last year felt like the right time to for us to revisit outdoor daytime events” says Shindig director Neil Bainbridge. “We had gone firmly back to Shindig’s roots with the Hoults Yard Warehouse events so it was only natural to look carefully at how we could replicate Shindig Birthday events of previous years at Times Square or Baltic Square sites and combine it with new sense of excitement we had captured during the last two years.
“This time round being able to transform the vast space on the banks of the River Tyne with festival production is a massive step up for Shindig. Spillers Wharf allows us to present such a huge array of electronic artists across two stages and be very creative with the site setup…”
Co-Director and Shindig founder Scott Bradford comments “After 22 years we’re still committed to keeping Shindig at the forefront of UK clubbing – it excites us as to what is around the corner. We’re certainly not a club night to stand still”
