Rescue Rooms

Since its inauguration into the Nottingham music scene in 2003, Rescue Rooms has developed some rich history...

Everyone from Amy Winehouse, The Libertines, Ellie Goulding, and Happy Mondays have taken to the stage in this 450-capacity venue from DHP Family. It’s also next door to both Rock City and Stealth, creating a powerhouse of a venue trio for the city’s music festivals.

There’s a bar area open every day from 4pm, two rooms for gigs, and two patios, so you can always do some al fresco sipping on the warmer days. There’s a large range beers on tap which includes constantly changing guest lines, as well as cask ales, and fridges with more beers than you can shake a stick at.

    PBR Streetgang have released huge tracks on both Hot Creations and 20/20 Vision recordings. Fresh off the back of a huge summer in Ibiza and touring the festival scene we're delighted to announce the duo will be gracing the stage at Rescue Rooms for what is set to be a sellout show!




    Laurence Guy has been making and playing music for a long time. However, it seems that now he’s really hit his stride. Over the last couple of years, he has proven his worth with a string of hyped releases on Church, Rose Records and Cin Cin.

    As a DJ, he’s gone from strength to strength, taking his all encompassing style and rampant musical enthusiasm around the globe, making his Boiler Room debut in 2016 and appearing on revered radio stations such as Rinse and Worldwide FM.



    LUKE WOLFMAN (El Dorado Festival)

    As one of the co-founders and head residents of El Dorado Festival and Cirque Du Soul Luke knows how to get a party started! After years of playing around the world his own record collection is extensive, drawing on influences ranging from tribal, afro, acid and disco all rolled into one progressive journey.
