Digital Newcastle has set the bar for clubbing in the North East of England since day one. Originally built as part of the city's Millenium developments, the space was taken over by Tokyo Industries CEO Aaron Mellor in 2006, who made it instantly clear he intended to rival the UK's most renowned locations by importing the club's prototype Quadrophoic dancestack system from Miami. Digital has racked up multiple awards in the years since, including Best Large Club at DJ Mag's 2010 Best of British ceremony.
Residents include Hot Creations and Relief Records favourite Patrick Topping (who hosts his own Motion nights at the venue), whilst visiting talent comes in the form of techno and house giants such as Ben Klock, Kerri Chandler, Skream and Hannah Wants.
Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, Digital Newcastle is looking to lead the way for the next decade too, with (a rather appropriate) 10 developments in the works. The expansion includes a new bar named the NEST (an outdoor terrace), a revamped Room 2 focusing on up-and-coming talent and a dedicated live stage, the latter of which is a particularly enticing addition given the wealth of electrifying live shows on offer at the moment.
