Forced to leave the Tivoli Theatre in January, the pop-up venue finds its new home at Jam Park.
The popular pop-up club was forced to close in January due to redevelopment at the Tivoli Theatre, its home since 2014. Now, it's found a new base in Jam Park, the multipurpose venue run by local promoters Bodytonic. In the higher-capacity space, the club's team promise "better sound" and "bigger production."
District 8 will curate 20 parties each year at Jam Park, with the first coming on September 7th. For the occasion, District 8 has invited back party favourites Kerri Chandler, Jeremy Underground and Brame & Hamo. Future lineups are still TBA.
The team has been teasing the new space on its social media since the beginning of May. Read their full statement on Instagram.

We at District 8 are both proud and excited to announce the next chapter in our journey. Following on from the closure of the Tivoli Theatre earlier this year, we, like everyone else, were left searching for what might be the next step for Dublin clubbing. But out of adversity comes opportunity, and we are delighted to announce that District 8 will reopen this September at the multi-purpose Bodytonic venue, Jam Park (Airside Retail Park, Swords, Co. Dubin), curating 20 select shows annually in this incredible new venue. In this new space, District 8 will pick up right where we left off, bringing you the same high quality electronic music from around the globe, but with better sound, bigger production and bigger lineups in an even bigger space. And to coincide with this announcement, we are delighted to reveal the lineup for our opening night... On the 7th September 2019, we kick things off with a very special lineup of artists that we have long admired and have themselves been responsible for some unforgettable District 8 moments… Kerri Chandler, Jeremy Underground and Brame & Hamo. Kerri has been an Irish favourite for over two decades, with a back catalogue of music that transcends generations. His shows are always incredibly uplifting experiences that connect with us Irish, every time... A World-class DJ and producer, always super modest, humble and laid back, he recently cited D8 as one of his all-time favourite clubs, ever! And often refers to District 8 and Ireland as “coming home”... We couldn’t think of a better person to open our new home. Keeping things special for the occasion, Kerri requested to present this event as Kaoz, his label and brand that features at select clubs and festivals across the globe... And with Jeremy Underground and Brame & Hamo joining him, who are we to argue? As always, we looking forward with great excitement to the return of the King of House. This is just the start for us and we will be announcing many more huge shows over the next few weeks so keep an eye out for weekly updates - we have many more big lineups to reveal. #District8
