Digital opened in Newcastle a decade ago, and DJ Mag immediately dubbed it “the Fabric of the North” due to its quality underground line-ups. Boasting the UK's first quadrophonic Funktion One Dancestacks, it helped raise the bar for UK club venues.
Situated right on Newcastle's Times Square in the city centre and owned by Aaron Mellor's Tokyo Industries, Digital's nights were promoted by the charismatic Dave Stone for many years until his recent retirement to run a pub in the city.
Next month (May) Digital, along with regular night Elektriqa, are staging an external festival in Times Square itself, while recent bookings have included EDM big-hitters such as Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Nervo, emerging house acts like Martinez Brothers, Breach and Hot Since 82, and trancers Paul van Dyk and Sander van Doorn. Digital Newcastle has also recently added a new 'room four', the Think Tank, which has seen acts such as The Orb, Reverend & the Makers and NYC punk-funkers ESG do their live gig thang.
