Home to Slam's appropriately titled Pressure parties for over a decade now, Glasgow's Arches is a venue that is match made for ceiling-sweating, panel-beating techno raves of Pressure's ilk. From the first time you step into the Arches's bricked-out and stretching railway arches, you know there's only really one choice - rave like fuck or get the fuck out of here. Although, it's not usually a hard one to make given that Dave Clarke, Joris Voorn, Carl Craig and Boys Noize all Pressure regulars. Noisy electro session Death Disco and trance-loving glowstick orgies like Inside Out and Colours also reside here.
"A cavernous warehouse style venue with an outstanding Funktion 1 system and an atmosphere that you don't find anywhere else on the planet - it's like playing a festival every month," say Slam on their spiritual home.
