New City Gas is Montreal’s sprawling, 40,000 square foot power plant-turned-dance-haven. Despite the raw, industrial space it inhabits, the club’s music vibe is less underground grit and more big-room beats. Pumping out EDM on a regular basis with some of the biggest names in the international dance music scene, New City Gas serves night revellers in search of something other than the techno and experimental electronic sounds the French Canadian city is known for.
Showtek, Markus Schulz, Dannic, and Dyro are just a few of the recent acts to grace this club’s booth, and New City Gas’ state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems might be one reason why. What DJ doesn’t want to play to a crowd bombarded by a dazzling audio-visual spectacle accompanied by their beats? Four years strong and going, this old power plant that once supplied the city’s street lights continues to illuminate Canadian nights.
