Opened in 2011, District 8 is located in central Dublin, a short walk from Christ Church Cathedral and the Guinness Storehouse. The 1,000 capacity venue has made a name for itself as one of the best places to catch big-name house and techno DJs in Ireland. Originally a theatre, today the revamped space more closely resembles a former warehouse. District 8’s programming is overseen by a core group of local promoters, including Subject, Archetype, Bedlam & Connection, Hidden Agenda and Bodytonic. Past District 8 guests include Ben Klock, Loco Dice, Rødhåd and Omar-S.
