Techno mainstays Pulse stage their first event in 18 months with Edinburgh’s NEIL LANDSTRUMM playing live. “We are very excited to announce that we will host the Bongo Club’s opening weekend on Saturday Aug 14th,” they say. “During the festival the space is normally reserved for Underbelly so this is a rare opportunity to get inside the venue for a club event. As restrictions are removed these will be the first line of events in 18 months so we’re sure everyone is as excited as us. For this event we welcome along once again NEIL LANDSTRUMM. It’s always an easy decision to bring Neil to the club, who we still regard as one of the best live performers touring the world (when it was normal). Support the artist, check out his Bandcamp for his most latest releases and also much of his mint back catalogue.” DJ support from Darrell Pulse. Tickets from Resident Advisor. Late license is subject to change. Can’t wait to see you all dancing again!”
