'carnage' firmly implanted in my brain. The atmosphere inside the place
is second to none - you're not going to find a better place to go out
and party! "
CALLY & JUICE ( UK )
" Contact and
Overload are definitely up there with some of the UK’s best clubbing
events. The atmosphere is about as good as you’ll find anywhere and you
can always tell a big effort is made with the production and sound.
Definitely an event we like to stick around at after our set! "

" Contact is one of the South Coast’s best regular events, without
question! Wicked venues, an always friendly & up-for-it crowd, top
guest & resident DJs every time ... if you haven’t checked it out
yet you’re obviously a couple of bricks short of a wall :D ”
MATT HANDY ( UK )
" Contact has always provided a great event , and offered something
different from many other events I have played . The atmosphere always
goes off thanks to the great crowd that attend . They have never been
ones to try and follow trends or fashion , instead tryed to think
forward while still remembering the roots of the scene "
HELLRAISER ( AUSTRALIA )

♦ CONTACT - A BRIEF HISTORY ♦
CONTACT is all about the music , breaking new talent and bringing a large range of more underground sounds to a wider audience.
We have helped keep part of the underground electronic music scene
alive and kicking since its birth in the heady rave days when the early
UK RAVE scene was in its prime in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
Clubs and underground innovators like Sterns , Club UK , The Manor ,
Fantasia , Spooky , Universe , Tribal Gathering , Labyrnth , Rhythm
Station and many more events were sweaping across the land which we were
a part of and a lot of our inspiration comes from this era.
Contact was born through pure passion for many types of dance music
since it started and after following and involvement at various
underground clubs , promotions & locations since 1991.
first events associated with the contact ethos started way back in 1994
but under other different names. The name CONTACT came about because of
its meaning and was then started to be used in 1998 as a series of free
parties. Moving to the wedgewood rooms in 1999 still carrying on with
the tradition of free parties but in a club enviroment we brought down
up & coming artists that were suppling the best music at the time.
These were little known now superstar djs such as BK , FERGIE , KARIM ,
JUSTIN BOURNE , OD404 , SUPERFAST OZ , NICK SENTIENCE and his early
band SENTIENCE ( LIVE PA consisting of Tom Neville , King Roc & Nick
) and many more who grew to become the massive international stars they
are today and all for free.
A year or so went by and CONTACT
had completely outgrown the Wedgewood Rooms with people cueing up half a
mile down the road , so needed a bigger venue and moved to The Pier
which became its home for the next 10 years.
Over this time one
of the most popular nights on the south coast has brought you almost
every top international artist right to your doorstep with DJs flying in
from Japan , Germany , Finland , Denmark , Holland , Italy , Austrailia
and other countries around the world along with the freshest and best
underground and up & coming talent. You wont get any boring DJs at
Contact thats for certain.
Along the way it has including many
themed nights and tours and mighty collaborations at venues such as
MINSTRY OF SOUND , SE1 , CAMDEN PALACE , BRIXTON ACADEMY , LAKOTA ,
CUSTARD FACTORY , THE FRIDGE , FRANTIC , BIONIC , FUSION , ANTIWORLD ,
RIOT , BLUTONIUM , UBERDRUCK , MIXMAG , UPFRONT MAG and the newest
adventure for last 4 yrs OVERLOAD @ THE FORT with dozens of others over
the yrs including many NYE events , free payback parties , Charity
Fundraisers for good causes and many sell out shows …
CONTACT has always aimed to set high standards and give you the best experience possible as a clubber.
As music evolved year on year and popularity changed and grew so has
CONTACT incorporating many styles into the nights and other rooms of
music from proper oldskool classics 2 house 2 electro 2 techno 2 trance 2
tech trance 2 hardtrance 2 hardstyle 2 hardcore giving the whole
spectrum of underground Dance music under one banner and the atmosphere
at many of the events has been second to none.
