Everyone in Sheffield knows Plug. A firm local favourite, the club is made up of three rooms ingeniously named Live, Neutral and Earth which regularly house the best in upcoming bands and DJs.

Riding high on its legendary status the electrifying draw of Plug has attracted some of the biggest names having played The Prodigy and local lads Arctic Monkeys giving fans the chance to see the sort of shows you’d normally see in a stadium in a far more intimate setting,

Let’s take a look at what’s coming up.


Plug will be launching the very first This is England Club Night on Sunday 1st of May. It is organised by Warp Films, the people behind the gritty film and accompanying TV series. The story of This Is England is loosely based on writer and director Shane Meadows real life and explores British youth, alienation and subcultures through the Eighties and Nineties.

Totally official, the night sees guest DJ appearances in Room 1 from Thomas Turgoose (Shaun), Andrew Ellis (Gadget) and Andy Shim (Milky) in the Indie/Madchester room. Room 2 will see Alistair Whitehead play Rave, Acid House and 90’s club classics while Room 3 is Ska and Reggae as curated by BBC 6 Music DJ Don Letts and SFL Sound System (Trojan Explosion).

What a way to spend the May Day Bank Holiday!

Blitzed out Australian psych kids Jagwar Ma will be getting plugged in on Wednesday 25th of May. Their debut album Howlin’ was an absolute smash upon its release in 2013. With big trippy anthems their dance influenced indie is so infectious.

This will be one great gig!

Glaswegian garage rockers Baby Strange new single Pure Evil is a wonderful wailing cacophony bemoaning a generation of wasters. The song is a relentless pounding of punchy beats. See them do their stuff on Saturday 28th of May.
