Stage: The Sidesplitter Day: Saturday Set Time: TBA

Takes place on Friday night into the early hours of Saturday morning.

Slimelight was created in 1987, and has been located at The Electrowerkz in Islington, London since October of that year. Initially opening as a weekly members only club with just one dance floor playing what was advertised as “the only alternative”, in reality this was a mix of goth, post punk, industrial, new wave, indie, alternative electronic, and crossover 80s music.

Over the years the club has adapted to the ever changing dark scene, and has expanded to include multiple dance floors and performances from live bands.

The club currently runs once a month and is the longest running and most well known dark scene club in the world, celebrating its 35th year this autumn.

Resident Slimelight DJs GassMann, Emmerick Gortz and Steve Weeks will be representing the club at Download.
