SecretCity + Void | Sat 14 Apr | Basement No.38 | From £10
This Saturday, tremors will shake the infrastructure of Birmingham as a fierce party rages in a derelict basement somewhere beneath the city centre. At the epicentre of this chaos, SecretCity and Void unite for one night only of non-stop underground house and techno, powered by a colossal Void Nexus sound system. With proceedings being stripped back to the only things that really matter – good music and good vibes – expect something a little different from your conventional clubbing fare.

Motive: Outlook After Party | Sat 14 May | Suki10c | From £5 OTD
Suki10c ushers in the straight-through ravers as they spill out of the Blackbox in dribs and drabs, launching a session of jungle, dub and hip hop at a time when clubs up and down Broad Street will be closing their doors. Appearing alongside the club’s resident DJs is Fish, who will be drawing upon the darker side of bass music for a high octane sunrise set.
