2 years ago


If you fancy putting yourself in the mix as the next David Guetta, or you reckon you’re as skilled at scribbling as Martin Garrix or Calvin Harris, then you need to head down to Camp and Furnace.

The Baltic venue is hosting its fab RISER Open Deck DJ nights every Thursday from 6pm-11pm, giving DJs at every level the chance to play in its infamous Camp and Furnace warehouse space.

It’s about celebrating 10 years of world-renowned DJs at the iconic city venue, while reaching out to new grassroots DJs and producers in and around Liverpool.

So whether you want a great night out or the thrill of taking to the decks in the legendary venue, here are 10 reasons to check it out.
