That icon of deep and soulful house, Allister Whitehead, is playing Tynemouth’s lovely Barca Art Bar on New Year’s Day. Are we having that? Too right, matey!

Allister Whitehead is one of the true legends of dance music with a career that stretches right back to 1987. He achieved cult status at the Golden, which was voted club of the year in 1993, and he followed that with a residency at Liverpool superclub Cream. He then secured regular slots at Ministry of Sound, Gatecrasher and just about any top club in the UK that you’d care to mention. His worldwide fame was secured with the release of Fantazia collection ‘The House Collection 3’ which became the biggest selling DJ compilation of the 1990s. These days he is in huge demand around the world and it’s great news that he’s agreed to be first foot for Barca Art Bar in 2020.
