Allister Whitehead to play The Terrace

Often described as one of the UK’s most prolific house superstar DJs, Allister Whitehead is most commonly associated with superclubs like Ministry of Sound, Cream, and Gatecrasher. However, he’ll be playing quite a different gig on 29th March when he swaps the superclubs for a ‘microclub’. The Terrace, here in Dewsbury has a capacity of just 100.

This will be a rare opportunity to see a huge name on the house music scene in such an intimate venue.

An original 90s superstar DJ

Allister started his career with a residency at the Koolkat in Nottingham but got his big break at the Hacienda in Manchester at the height of its infamy in the 90s. He went on to sell-out huge clubs around the world, as well as releasing his own material. 30+ years later, he is still playing those high-capacity venues due to the huge appetite for dance music that still exists. Allister will be playing bangers from the 90s as well as modern club classics at The Terrace.

An emerging club scene in Dewsbury

The Terrace is a small venue with big ambitions. It is focused on building its reputation as a hub for dance music and daring to rival nearby big cities such as Manchester and Leeds in delivering amazing club nights (see recent article in The Dewsbury Reporter). Having already hosted Secret DJ, Dewsburg Beatz, and Bizarre, huge 90s dance act, Utah Saints, will play at the end of January. More artists and club nights will be announced throughout the year.

Tickets available now

Tickets are priced at £20, available from Skiddle. Utah Saints sold out within days and with only 100 tickets up for grabs, anyone interested in seeing such an icon of house music in a venue like this is advised to book early.
