In a relatively short space of time, The Stiff Kitten has come to dominate Belfast's underground music scene. On a techno and tech-house tip, recent guests like Joris Voorn, Adam Beyer, Eric Prydz, Sebo K, Josh Wink, Ben Sims, Derrick Carter, Ben Klock and Raresh offer a clear indication of the level of quality at hand, while names like Fake Blood, Alex Metric, Prins Thomas and Toddla T are also regulars. It also doubles as a live music venue with New Young Pony Club and Idlewild recently appearing.
"The Stiff Kitten guys have really pushed Belfast into the premier league as far as world class dance music events are concerned," believe Gareth Donoghue from The Japanese Popstars. "The music policy is diverse but always quality driven, and the team are able to make this work in a way that most clubs would maybe be afraid to even try."
