Glasgow's Sub Club is about to turn 30.

On April 1, Sub Club residents Harri & Domenic will DJ all night long, 30 years to the day it first opened its doors. The celebrations will roll through the rest of the summer, with a live show from KiNK on April 8, and DJ sets by Kerri Chandler on April 15 and The Black Madonna on May 6. Larry Heard is booked in for his first UK live performance for over two decades, at local venue The Barrowland Ballroom on July 15. Later in the summer, the Sub Club SoundSystem invites the likes of Dixon and Maceo Plex for a two-day festival (on August 26-27).

“The music still batters the senses, pushing boundaries, constantly reinventing and hopefully setting the tone for what’s coming round the next corner. This is the space where underground clubs really exist, breaking new music, creating new energies, inspiring new ideas, and forging new friendships all along the way," said Mike Grieve, the club's director. "Having the Subculture boys bossing the booth for the April 1st birthday party pays due homage to their influence and the spirit of the Subbie! 30 years? Easy Peasy!”

First opening its doors back in 1987, the Scottish venue has become a legendary institution over the years, for its parties with the likes of Slam and Optimo.
