Here’s Everything You Need To Know About York’s Alternative Friday Nights This Term

Starting this Friday night, YUSU are supporting alternative student-run club nights every week. Friday night now offers you some pure alternative indulgence, for when you fancy something a bit different and more musically diverse than the norm.

Here is a quick run-down of this term’s alternative student events. 

On & On Opening Party featuring Chesus AKA Earl Jeffers – Friday 9th October (Week 2).

Born out of boredom with the York club scene, On & On’s nights are about having a good time with some unexpected features thrown in along the way.

For the first time ever, On & On are hosting an event on campus, in the Roger Kirk Centre on Friday 9th October. The event plays host to Chesus AKA Earl Jeffers, who is a familiar face to many in the House and Disco scene. This is set to be a big night, with TheDT York team attending to make club gifs! Get excited.

Introducing an all new night in York: Closed Circuit, with the mandate of bringing some of the finest selectors in Europe to play in the small city of York. This isn’t an event about booking the ‘biggest’ DJs in the world, but instead about searching out the musical fanatics who are best at making people dance, ’cause that’s what you do when you go out, right?
