Motion is one of the most musically diverse clubs in the UK. It offers multi-dimensional spaces with cutting edge line-ups from the best collectives and brands in the scene and that has been the case in 2022 as things have somewhat returned to normal. Energy levels have been high at the club for the first quarter and that will only count with a tasteful mix of events this spring. As always, they mix up international pioneers with fast rising local stars so offer an unrivalled place to hear the very best electronic music each and every week.
Motion always prides itself on offering a diverse and safe dance floor. New measures remain in place to guard against recent reports of increased spiking incidents across the UK and include lids on drinks, increased security presence and non-uniformed operatives patrolling the club to ensure customer safety.
Of the many standout events to come, the first is the throwback disco celebration that is Glitterbox on Friday 22nd April with mainstay Shapeshifters, Mello Baptiste, Sophie Lloyd, Simon Dunmore and Kiddy Smile.
