The Art School and the Mental Health Foundation have teamed up to bring Derrick May and Auntie Flo to the SMHAFF closing party.

Following on from last year’s incredible club event which brought Chicago house to the Arches, this unique event returns for a second year, bringing Detroit techno to the Art School with one of the founding fathers and most powerful names in Techno: Derrick May.

May will headline this one-off night in a special extended set in the reveamped Assembly room. One of the classic Detroit triumvirate alongside Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson, May was also the creative force behind Rhythim is Rhythim (one of the most lauded and named-checked acts in the history of techno) and head honcho of seminal techno imprint Transmat

Isabella Goldie, Director of Development and Delivery at the Mental Health Foundation said:

“The Mental Health Foundation is delighted to be working with The Art School to create this exciting club night. Mental health problems affect 1:4 people but despite that it is still hard to reach out for support. This club night is an amazing opportunity to change young people’s minds about how they think about mental health whilst they are having a great night out with friends. We are delighted that Derrick May has joined us in our campaign to change minds.”

As if this wasn’t enough, we also have ‘one of the most talented production talents of recent times‘ and very special guest Auntie Flo taking time off from his regular London clubnight Highlife and coming back to Glasgow to headline the Vic Bar.

Tickets are £10/£12. You can get them at TicketScotland with a special reduced booking fee.
