Tay Late: And the Beat Goes On

Clubbing through crisis

Beaming remotely into your hearts and minds, this online party brings us together while we remain (safely) apart. Lockdown has been a huge and ongoing struggle for clubs and all those in the industry, so we’d love you to join us for a night of talks, film, experimental performances, DJ sets and dancing - celebrating the resilience and cultural value of night clubs.

From Dundee to NYC via Glasgow, Dublin, Edinburgh and London.

Meet us on Perth Road in Dundee with a DJ set from Le Freak Records, before heading over to Dublin for a special Director’s cut of the 2021 mini-documentary Clubbing is Culture, a love letter to Ireland’s nightclubs.

Join writer-musician Kayus Bankole, of Mercury Prize-winning Scottish band Young Fathers, to explore dancing, communal experience and togetherness in a specially commissioned new film featuring spoken word, original sound and visuals by Chizu Anucha. Experience mesmerising audio reactive visuals from designer Connor Campbell that will punctuate the sets throughout the night.

Watch moving image work created by Glasgow DJ, performance artist and producer TAAHLIAH and Middle Eastern visual and performance artist HUSS. Have a dance break with V&A Dundee’s Young People’s Collective, and explore club and queer aesthetics through a short film created by artist and DJCAD student Farah Hussain.

Let the iconic Ana Matronic soundtrack your dance floor with an exclusive live-stream collaboration with artist and designer Seth Kirby, direct from their current NYC residence Glamourship Down.

And finally meet us (virtually) in London for an after party with award-winning LGBTIQ+ hosts Queer House Party.

In the wise words of The Whispers.... And the beat goes on.


Please note, this event includes flashing lights.
