Mike Skinner and Chris Lorenzo will top the bill at The Tuesday Club Summer Carnival, it can be announced today.

The last time Lorenzo packed out Foundry

The Carnival will take place on Tuesday 6 June, running from 4pm in Bar One right up until 4am in Foundry.

The legendary Skinner, best known for his work in The Streets, last headlined TTC in December 2015, while Chris Lorenzo has fast cemented himself as one of the most in demand names in the UK dance scene.

The line-up reflects a wide range of genres. Bassline, garage, grime and drum and bass will all be represented through sets from Holy Goof, Wookie, Swindle and Mollie Collins & IC3.

After his huge set at Detonate Sheffield in February, Holy Goof – playing TTC for the first time – said “I’ve heard great things about Tuesday Club, so I’m really looking forward to making my debut!”

Resident DJ Andy H will be on warm up duties as always, while Channel One Sound System return to Sheffield for a daytime mix in the Bar One gardens.

Also announced today were Displace and Coxie going back to back, as well as sets from Simmerdown DJs and Chief Pukka Sound System. More acts are still to be confirmed.

Early bird and first release tickets sold out rapidly before a single act was announced, with second release tickets currently flying out.

Last year’s summer party was a huge night which saw Preditah, Cause & Affect and Elf Kid deliver huge sets which more than compensated for a certain MC not turning up.

This year’s Carnival is looking like another roadblock event – don’t miss out on Sheffield’s biggest dance line up in some time.

This week’s Tuesday Club put four huge names on one line up – living legend Slimzee, fast rising grime star AJ Tracey and Sheffield scene staples Dr Cryptic and Forca. As usual, Andy H provided the first hour of tunes. He established the tone of the night perfectly with some inspired selections; there’s no denying TTC’s resident selector’s expertise or ability to warm up a crowd.

The founder of the independent Chip Butty Records, Dr Cryptic’s strong back catalogue includes My Style’ and ‘My Selector’. He took things up a notch in Foundry with huge basslines and impressive remixes. Cuts including bassline versions of a Whitney Houston song and the Countdown theme showed off Cryptic’s skill and creativity.

Next up was Forca, performing his very first solo live show but few people would have guessed. He already has a likeable stage presence, interacting well with the crowd and teasing a number of VIP and new tracks which show huge promise.


After half an hour, the stage was set for AJ Tracey. He immediately had the crowd entranced, causing chaos at the front and dropping massive tracks throughout the set. ‘Leave Me Alone’ and ‘Buster Cannon’ showed why everyone from Zane Lowe to BBC Music have tipped AJ as big in 2017. Rounding off proceedings with ‘Thiago Silva’, a collaboration with Dave, AJ justifiably remarked that the crowd was one of his best of 2016.


Seeing out the night was Rinse FM co-founder Slimzee, whose involvement in pirate radio and the grime scene across the years has been key to the success and development of many high-profile MCs. In keeping with his reputation, Slimzee delivered a huge hour of exclusive dubplates and grime classics. His years of experience were evident in how he commanded the decks, rounding off another TTC with a well curated range of acts and an electric atmosphere.

This year’s massive Tuesday Club line ups have arguably stepped things up from last year. Proof of this came in a massive return for Bondax, with special guests Maribou State also coming back to Foundry and Rev. Austin in tow to open the night.


Opening another sold out event, Rev. Austin got things going with a range of ambient big beats. His tune choices that ranged from funky house to hip hop, incorporating most styles in the process. Popular cuts from Disclosure, Kendrick Lamar and CHVRCHES ensured an upbeat start to the night. Rev. Austin’s impressive production and mixing skills were left in no doubt at all.

Foundry was packed out by the time Maribou State took to the decks. After their memorable back-to-back set with Pedestrian last year, the standard had been set. True to form, Maribou State delivered a fun, diverse set, featuring everything from their own tunes to a Tame Impala remix. This continued the variety and quality of the night, and Maribou State’s return delivered the goods.

The night was finished up with an hour and a half of tunes from the night’s main attraction Bondax. Armed with an impressive visual setup, they played hits ‘All I See’ and ‘Giving It All’ in the first part of their performance. Both tunes were remixed in the form of impressive edits, and the quality did not stop throughout the ninety minutes. Balancing the popular with a selection of deeper cuts, Bondax once again delighted all at TTC with a versatile, strong appearance which justified their continued ascent on the British dance music scene.
