The appearance of Ultrabeat is somewhat of a coup for the club, which opened in October 2018 after renovation costing around £150,000.

One of the organisers, Jordan Molloy who will perform on the night as part of Escapes said it was ‘huge’ for the club to have pulled in such a big name.

He said: “Having Ultrabeat and MC Cover come to Sunderland and Club Upside Down is huge for the place for a number of reasons. Ultrabeat has been an established international DJ since 2002 and had some huge tracks such as Pretty Green Eyes, Feeling Fine and Elysium (I Go Crazy).

“We’re very pleased to be able to have someone like Ultrabeat and MC Cover come to Sunderland.”
