Leeds has had a backbone of historic establishments over the years with a heritage that still stands strong to this day. Distrikt, the underground dwelling on Duncan Street has pushed itself to the forefront of local and national market with iconic bookings like Green Velvet, Derrick May, Octave One and Matthew Herbert who have all performed to a rip roaring 200 capacity venue. The bar/club has been a pinnacle setting for the intimate showcase with brands like Air, Slapfunk, Half Baked, Albion and mono_cult also conducting courtyard events which have been a centre piece come the summer months.
A versatile venue that sits in the heart of the city centre, Distrikt has always grown organically allowing the locals and clubbers to create their own vibe. With a positive outlook from the promoters and pulsating system that flows from front to back, its slowly becoming one of the hottest properties in the north on UK. The DJ booth has been graced by the late great DJ Derek who performed one of his final gigs to a full house, whilst Octave One performed a live show to another capped audience.
