Dundee Dance Event
DDE HouseBound Live kicks off on Friday at 7:00pm and is being broadcast
DDE DJs will also be uploading mixes to the Mixcloud page which you can listen to at any time. You can find the mixes here: https://www.mixcloud.com/DundeeDanceEvent/
We’re raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent who were DDE’s chosen charities this year. Worthy causes are struggling in the current climate, especially those who are suffering because events that were helping to raise funds for them are being cancelled.
We know times are tough at the moment but if you were able to make a small contribution it would be much appreciated. Every donation will help as we aim to raise £3000 which will be split equally between the two charities.

We hope you enjoy the music over the weekend!
THE DDE TEAM
The Dundee Dance Event was originally launched back in 1998 to showcase DJing talent not getting the chance to shine in local bars and clubs. The event was a first for the city and is still the largest event in the UK designed for local, up-and-coming DJs and artists from Dundee and beyond. The DDE ran for two successful years and provided a platform for the DJs to show what they could do. Many of the DJs from those early events, including DDE promoter Mike McDonald, went on to become residents at venues throughout the country and abroad, and made appearances at T In The Park and Homelands festivals.
The event was relaunched in 2011 and was an instant success with packed bars and a sold out closing party. From humble beginnings back in 1998 with 17 DJs playing in 9 venues, to relaunching in 2011 with 10 venues and 50 DJs, the event this year has 27 venues and over 150 DJs and artists. DJs from every Scottish city, and plenty of towns in-between, will be represented again at this year’s event - it’s now truly become a country-wide affair. The event is also an opportunity for the dance music community to get together once a year to celebrate the scene we all love.
We hope you enjoy our 2020 event : Date to be announced soon!
