Here we go again:
We are overjoyed to announce that special guest for our 6th Birthday on Friday 4th June is the legendary Detroit techno superstar CARL CRAIG!!!!!
This will be a truly special, and very rare opportunity, to catch one of the world's best techno DJs / producers in a venue as intimate as the 350 capacity Reading Rooms in Dundee!
This date is exclusive to Headway, Carl will not be playing anywhere else in the UK this weekend!
Recording under his own name and many aliases – including 69, Psyche, BFC, Paperclip People, Innerzone Orchestra, C2, Tres Demented and others – Craig owns a constellation of seminal recordings that have established him as an icon in the techno genre. He came of age as part of its ‘second generation,’ learning from the trio of pioneers credited with techno’s invention: Derrick May, Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson. Though the genre has exploded in recent years, Craig’s role as a producer, DJ and ambassador for the music remains as vital as ever. His new tracks and remixes have become contemporary dancefloor staples and he continues to spin around the world, from intimate venues in San Francisco and New York to large festivals in Detroit, Tokyo and Berlin.
In the last year alone Carl Craig has been a headliner at huge events and brilliant venues such as the Sonar Festival in Barcelona, I Love Techno in Belgium, Nuits Sonores Festival in France, Amsterdam Dance Event, Glade Festival, Get Loaded In The Park, Bloc Weekend, Pressure's 11th Birthday at The Arches, The Sub Club, Fabric, Berghain/Panorama Bar in Berlin, Rex Club in Paris, Air in Tokyo, Space in Ibiza and many more...
Carl will be playing an extended 3 hour set for us and we will be adding part of a Funktion 1 sound system to provide the deepest bass just for this event! Lots of cool visuals too!
Doors open at 21:30 with Carl coming on most likely at 23:30 so please get down early! We will be keeping a limited number of tickets available at the door on the night!
Advance tickets on sale now from Grouchos for only £12!

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has supported Headway over the last 6 years, we really appreciate it as we could not have done it without you. We're still as enthusiastic about putting on a great party with great music as we were from that very first Wednesday night in Fat Sam's all those years ago! We hope you can all join us to celebrate our 6th birthday on Friday 4th June with one of the best techno DJs / producers on the planet!
Here's to the next 6 years! :)
