Every night of the weekend the space of the sleeping trains and their platforms transforms to host music events. The best way to get there is to jump on the night tube and interchange where the day and the night tubes intersect. The underground club exists independently of the outside – no more getting wet or sobering up on the way to your dancing destination. What happens underground stays underground.
While the night tube works as usual, the sleeping trains move only once every hour.
As the standing time of the train is much longer than its journey, tube dancers experience the feeling of constant suspense – as if the club was just about to depart.
We believe that transforming familiar spaces we use everyday eases the idea of clubbing. ‘Going underground’ rather than ‘going out’ is more universal and more welcoming for anyone who is reluctant of clubbing. We also believe that there is no dancing without music – the presence of rhythm is what makes us want to move. In the absence of bar, the lighting and acoustic qualities of tube tunnels are central features of the club.
London underground first, other cities will follow.
