We are overjoyed to announce that special guest for our 6th Birthday on Friday 7th May is the legendary Detroit techno superstar CARL CRAIG!!!!!

This will be a truly special, and very rare opportunity, to catch one of the world's best techno DJs / producers in a venue as intimate as the 350 capacity Reading Rooms in Dundee!

Recording under his own name and many aliases including 69, Psyche, BFC, Paperclip People, Innerzone Orchestra, C2, Tres Demented and others Craig owns a constellation of seminal recordings that have established him as an icon in the techno genre. He came of age as part of its second generation, learning from the trio of pioneers credited with technos invention: Derrick May, Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson. Though the genre has exploded in recent years, Craigs role as a producer, DJ and ambassador for the music remains as vital as ever. His new tracks and remixes have become contemporary dancefloor staples and he continues to spin around the world, from intimate venues in San Francisco and New York to large festivals in Detroit, Tokyo and Berlin.

In the last year alone Carl Craig has been a headliner at huge events and brilliant venues such as the Sonar Festival in Barcelona, I Love Techno in Belgium, Nuits Sonores Festival in France, Amsterdam Dance Event, Glade Festival, Get Loaded In The Park, Bloc Weekend, Pressure's 11th Birthday at The Arches, The Sub Club, Fabric, Berghain/Panorama Bar in Berlin, Rex Club in Paris, Air in Tokyo, Space in Ibiza and many more...

Carl will be playing an extended 3 hour set for us and we will be adding part of a Funktion 1 sound system to provide the deepest bass just for this event!

Doors open at 21:30 with Carl coming on most likely at 23:30 so please get down early! We will be keeping a limited number of tickets available at the door on the night!

Advance tickets on sale now from Grouchos for only 12!

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has supported Headway over the last 6 years, we really appreciate it as we could not have done it without you. We're still as enthusiastic about putting on a great party with great music as we were from that very first Wednesday night in Fat Sam's all those years ago! We hope you can all join us to celebrate our 6th birthday on Friday 7th May with one of the best techno DJs / producers on the planet!

Here's to the next 6 years! :-)

We are truly devastated to announce that Carl Craig will not be playing at Headway tonight, or indeed anywhere this weekend.

Unfortunately Carl's youngest daughter had an accident and was rushed to hospital.

Here is an official statement from Carl's agency:

http://www.club-headway.co.uk/CC%20cancellation.pdf

The date for Carl Craig has been rescheduled for Friday 4th June.

Any tickets already bought are valid for the new date on Friday 4th June or if you require a refund please go back to your ticket supplier.

Headway is still on tonight, we will be having a residents party which will be only 6 entry with doors opening at 21:30.

It's not all doom and gloom though, you all may remember when DJ Heather cancelled in 2007, we went with a residents night and it turned out to be one of the best Headways!

Don't forget we still have the D&B set up AND Funktion 1 so the sound is going to be amazing! We are still determined to have a great night so get yourself down to hear some quality house & techno!

We would like to thank everyone for making the effort to come to Headway on Friday despite no Carl Craig!

Rammed, great crowd, we really enjoyed playing for you all!

Sorry to the folk who travelled all the way from Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and beyond who did not know about the cancellation until they arrived at The Reading Rooms.

We hope you enjoyed seeing our residents play and that you'll be able to join as again next month for Carl Craig on Friday 4th June.

Remember, if you bought a Carl Craig ticket it is still valid for the rescheduled date on Friday 4th June!
