RED – Wednesday, BLUE – Tuesday

Let’s bring you back to the present day with the return to the 21st Century, featuring one of the world’s biggest dance acts Pendulum and their ‘partner in crime’ MC Verse. They’ve formerly headlined Glastonbury, Bestival and Download. Back in 2016 after 4 years of silence, they headlines Ultra Festival in Miami in March – one of the biggest electronic music festivals in the world. The electrifying energy of the Australian drum ‘n’ bass legends will be brought to our very own Students’ Union. Newcastle University Students’ Union Venue is a truly unique space situated in the heart of the campus, with a state of the art PA and lighting system, capacity for 1850 people and what is rumoured to be the longest bar in Europe. NUSU Venue hosts a number of club nights and live music events throughout the year which includes our regular Saturday night Throwback, gigs from Jack Garratt, James Bay and Kid Ink and a raft of other entertainment from comedy to dance. And that’s not all; we’ve also lined up a Capital Radio takeover in Mens Bar featuring the outstanding DJ, Martin Lowes! With a special guest DJ to heat up the night, this will be one for the history books.

Introducing Capital FM’s Martin Lowes!
