Amidst the recent saddening announcement that the lifting of lockdown restrictions has been delayed, a ray of light to help raise our spirits has just come out of Newcastle. News has just landed surrounding the launch of a brand new superclub. Set to open on the August bank holiday, ‘The Lofts’ will officially be the biggest club the North East of England has seen in over 10 years with 1,500 capacity spread across three rooms.
This exciting new project is in the very capable hands of John Dance, Marty Smith and Rob Seaman, whom together have over 30 years of experience in the industry. Their combined knowledge and experience in past events including working with the likes of Ibiza Rocks, Café Mambo and BBC Radio 1, will all play a pivotal role in the running of this new dance music institution.
Cutting the ribbon on the 27th of August will see dance music legend and tastemaker; Pete Tong performing alongside the groovy sounds of Horse Meat Disco. Joining them on the day are acts Hedges, Mighty Mouse, and Natasha Kitty Katt supported by resident DJs John Dance, Jonny Burn and Kev Cannon.
Speaking about the new venue, Director Rob Seaman said:
‘Our aim is to build on the excellent reputation Newcastle already has and raise its profile still further. We are booking international artists from different genres and can mix up the styles on the same night in the different rooms. We will have something to offer everyone at The Lofts and look forward to welcoming music fans not just from the local area but from throughout the UK’.
