    probably are smaller nights knocking about if you dig around

    is probably the biggest bass music night in sheffield. one on every tuesday but they have all sorts of headliners, dubstep, house whatever. as stated above i think the next one is with dbridge and dub phizix.

    do ocassional dnb nights with 1 or 2 name headilners. the last few have seen jubei, commix & stray amongst others.

    if they have a big all nighter thing like a hospitality or detonate it will be there (but the rest of the time it's complete shit, avoid it like the plague):

    those guys do the occasional big party which usually has a few jungle or dnb DJs. last one had luke vibert, taxman and krome & time headlining

    south seas pub has occasional free jungle nights

    the harley has some occasional jungle too

    also keep an eye out for the warehouse clubs "hope works" and "dirty little secret", both occasionally have good nights.

    don't let me get your hopes up though, i wouldn't say there's a dnb night more than once every 2/3 weeks. tbh the best bit about the sheffield nightlife is the rave scene, you gotta know someone who knows someone kinda thing to hook you up with the where/whens though. if you make it to any of those there's a chance you'll see me playin a dnb set ;)

    easy man there is a dnb night at DQ called Skrooface which is sick and its mostly all techy/jump up orientated stuff. Not as big as some other nights in Sheff but the vibe is awesome they had Dub Motion on there earlier this year and they've got Dialogue playing there on the 26th October this is the event page https://www.facebook.com/events/608623175837716/?ref=3 worth checking out anyway!

    Funny someone should make this thread.. me and the girlfriend are thinking of moving to Sheffield next year and my biggest worry is if the dnb scene matches up with Bristol. think i'm a little more confident on the matter after reading this.

    Just thought this might be helpful to anyone new to the Steel City on the hunt for Drum & Bass!!

    Sheffield's wicked for D&B - all angles get covered pretty well :)

    We run a night called Displace. It takes place in the warehouse venues in the city such as Hope Works, The Night Kitchen and Yellow Arch Studios. Our next event is our 5th Birthday with Friction, Break, Hybrid Minds, & MC's AD & Linguistics,

    We're sound system fiends too so there's always a silly system involved :p

    Roots gets in all kinds of bass music but often gets D&B and Dubwise acts in - it's Sheffield's Sound System culture night. At the next Roots they have Mickey Finn and Jacky Murder in one of the rooms, as well as a dubstep room (N-Type, J:Kenzo, Taiko) upstairs.

    Detonate also runs big parties a couple of times a year and put on large scale Ram / Hospitality style line-ups that always do really well.

    The Tuesday Club used to be primarily D&B but now focus on all kinds of dance music - D&B still gets featured there though. They've got Hazard & Krakota in the 2nd Room at their opening party this year.
