Dave Clarke’s moniker is ‘The Baron of Techno.’ It was bestowed upon him by the legendary DJ John Peel, and no one disputed it. He’s a legend in the game and if you don’t embrace this opportunity to go see him you’re missing out on a very special event.

The venue dates all the way back to the 18th century and is has been listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. However, there wasn’t a lot of techno gigs back then. This is going to be a special one, as there’s nothing better than experiencing pounding bass in historic Edinburgh architecture.
