We are excited to announce the return of one of dance music’s most influential and important figureheads to Headway for our first party of 2017 – Skream! Skream’s path through
clubland and its genres has taken him on an unexpected journey; from his scene-defining beginnings at Big Apple Records to topping the charts as part of Magnetic Man and
holding down Radio 1 residencies, he’s become the poster boy for contemporary British music.
Groove Armada's Tom Findlay hits Dundee for a very special Dj Set at The Reading Rooms with the ALL GOOD Dundee crew. Groove Armada's importance to dance music needs no
explanation, and having already smashed DJ sets at the likes of WHP, Snowbombing, Space Ibiza and, closer to home, a sell out SWG3 party in Glasgow this year.
The mighty Mungo's Hi-Fi Sound System returns to the small town club for their first session of 2017 Joining Mungo's and making their Reading Rooms debut,
Samson Sounds play live on stage.
For March, we bagged ourselves a DJ, most other DJ's consider one of the best in the game, GERD JANSON. The guy's worked the room at some of the best clubs in the world, and been
resident at 3 establishments that are pretty much the tastemakers for the entire international house scene, Trouw, Panorama Bar & Robert Johnson.
After playing at sell out gigs at SWG3 and the Sub Club in Glasgow this year, as well as holding down residencies at XOYO London and Pikes Ibiza over the summer, we thought
it was about time we brought the notorious party starter ARTWORK to Headway for his Dundee debut where we’ll be leaving the man to his own devices all night long.
2017 promises to be one of the biggest years yet in the glittering career of the dynamic Glaswegian duo SLAM (aka Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle).
As Slam's Soma label prepares to embark on the 25th year of it's epic journey, you only have to take one look at it's release schedule to understand why they have remained on
the cutting edge and firmly at the forefront of musical innovation.
