Nightlife matter is an all year long series of events organised by The Night Time Industries Association to celebrate authentic British club culture. Starting off with first six nights in six different cities in the UK. The ongoing programme will bring together talks, exhibitions and club nights to everyone who seek to explore and celebrate UK nightlife culture.
In words of Tom Findlay of Groove Armada: ” Nightlife Matters across Britain because it nurtures and sustains all our creative industries. It’s part of what makes Britain great.”
The Night Time Industries Association came up with the series of events from the urge to reach out to British club culture that is facing the increase of strict licensing laws. Having some of the best contemporary musicians like Adele, Dizzee Rascal, The Prodigy and FKA Twigs, British culture is challenging changes and threat that is resulting in a closure of nearly a half of the UK’s clubs and live music venues in past ten years.
The nightlife matters will kick off with performances ranging from different music genres that were born out the UK club culture. Several venues from all over the country including Fabric (London), Sub Club (Glasgow), Haunt (Brighton), Hidden (Manchester), Rainbow Venues (Birmingham), Motion (Bristol) and Lakota (Bristol) will participate to support the project.
Take your stand on the side and let your voice be heard by signing up to the #nightlifematters manifesto as it seems that new Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan will be be doing his bit as well as he plans to appoint a “Night Mayor” for the city of London, taking the lead from nightlife capitals like Amsterdam and Berlin.
