"What started as a pop-up club night to run a small series of shows quickly became something way bigger than any of us could have imagined.

"We have to pinch ourselves that we're still here 5 years later, running one of the biggest clubs in Ireland. We honestly feel that when District 8 is in full swing, it's the best atmosphere we've ever experienced in any club but that's all down to you guys. The people who have been going week in, week out.
