As far as student life goes it doesn't get much better than in Newcastle, you can pretty much go out on any night of the week and there'll be plenty going on. Whether you're planning to ditch pre-drinks for a few beers in a back street drinking hole or let rip on the Bigg Market, you're bound to find what you're looking for when it comes to a good and proper night on the 'toon'.
The clubbing scene in Newcastle is as thriving as ever, with a whole host of venues and promoters showcasing everything from underground house and techno, drum&bass and cheesy chart bangers. Hoochie Coochie regularly host outstanding soul, funk, disco and house form both DJs and live acts, whilst superclub Digital is the place to be for bigger club acts. House of Smith, Perdu, Cosmic Ballroom, Warehouse 34, Tup Tup Palace, and The Cut are likewise worth checking out.
We're constantly impressed by SSD Concert's run of shows which bring acts like Lambchop, Madness, Holy F*ck, Mac DeMarco and The Jesus and Mary Chain to the city, whilst O2 Academy is another big hitter on the live music front. Head here for more on live music in Newcastle.
