Beyond Submergence


When: Saturday 1st - Monday 31st July 2023

Where: Propyard in Bristol

Experts in sound, movement, technology, space, and scale, Squidsoup, are hosting their first light exhibition at Propyard in Bristol. 

The geniuses behind Four Tet’s pioneering Ally Pally light show are known globally for their incredible ability to evoke deep emotional responses with their immersive experiences. Bringing the show to Bristol for almost an entire month, with both morning and afternoon slots, this is an opportunity to explore another stunning universe crafted by the best in the game. 

Squidsoup urges attendees to take a moment to shut out from the real world before allowing their exhibit to take them on a journey through light, sound, and space with their art.

When: Saturday 2nd September 2023

Where: Middlesbrough Town Hall in Middlesbrough

Cheeky House Masters day festival, anyone? With techno and house including acid house, disco house, and old skool, this’ll be a blast.

House Masters, rooted in house, disco, and classic house tracks, hosts events and festivals to spread the best tunes to eager music fans. This one in Middlesbrough is an open-air shindig with street food, outdoor bars, a huge lineup (TBA), and festival production.

Going down at the back end of festival season, it’s the perfect (and very affordable) way to squeeze in one last bash as our favourite festivals hibernate for the winter again.

Ben Hemsley - Biggest Newcastle Show to Date: Venue TBA!


When: Saturday 14th October 2023

Where: VENUE TBA in Newcastle-upon-Tyne

A homecoming gig for one of the biggest UK DJs right now, obviously this is going to be next level.

With an insanely busy year ahead of him, Ben Hemsley will be polishing off countless festivals in the UK and across the globe, kicking off his first Ibiza residency, and then coming home for a biggun in Newcastle. 

This will be the young star’s biggest headline show to date and we expect just about every raver in Newcastle will be there. With a few other ravers from the north making the pilgrimage to see the trance/house icon too, of course.

Teletech: DJ Daddy Trance, Funk Tribu, Lucia Lu, Baugruppe90


When: Friday 15th September 2023

Where: Hidden in Manchester

Teletech is a well-known events brand from Manchester, recognised for its carefree techno events with international DJs. This time, they’re throwing a trance bash! 

Alongside those names listed above, there's The Muffin Man (incredible name, by the way), and Billy Does. and it’s all going down in one of Manchester’s best clubs, Hidden. Hidden is a must for those who love nothing but tunes. A bit stylishly run down, simple, and industrial, it’s the perfect setting for a sweaty rave, if you ask us. (As a Manc, I’d say it’s my fave Manc venue altogether.)

So if you fancy checking out some killer trance tunes, especially now, when trance seems to be popping off again, grab your tickets below!
