Headway with SKREAM
Friday 27th January 2017


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.

All Good presents GERD JANSON
Friday 3rd March 2017


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.

ARTWORK & Headway present Art's House
Friday 17th March 2017


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.
