Mission night club in Leeds

One of Leeds’ most popular clubs, Mission, will be keeping you up all night on Boxing Day as Insomnia brings together some of the best DJs in the world.

After you’ve probably hit they hay on Christmas Day evening and slept like a baby with all that wonderfully festive food and booze, you’ll be more than ready to keep going all night on Boxing Day, and Mission will be just the venue to do it in.

That’s because their weekly Saturday party Insomnia are going all out to make Boxing Day night one to remember, and they’ve whipped together quite the line-up to get us all down there.


One of the must-see DJs on the bill at Mission is Chris Lorenzo. The bassline wizard has pushed boundaries in the genre, on his own, as part of duo Cause and Affect or as the production whiz behind the scenes with one of dance music’s rising stars, Hannah Wants.

He’ll be joined at Insomnia by living musical legends Artful Dodger who bothered the charts almost non-stop from 1999 to 2001, releasing classic after classic helping to propel UK Garage from the clubs and onto the airwaves.

The likes of ‘Re-Rewind’, featuring none other than Craig David, ‘Movin’ Too Fast’, ‘Women Trouble’, ‘Please Don’t Turn Me On’, and ‘Twenty Four Seven’ turned Artful Dodger into household names, as well as kickstarting there career of the aforementioned David – but we’ll forgive them for that.

Alongside Christ Lorenzo and Artful Dodger at Mission, will be resident DJs Ko Kane, Dale Castell, Ryan James, Tom Garnett and Tom Lorenzo, while the Chaos Dolls will be spread across the three rooms at Mission to provide some jaw dropping entertainment alongside the heavyweight tunes, that will all make for a Boxing Day night out you won’t forget in a hurry.

Insomnia is at Mission from 11pm on Saturday 26th December 2015. Tickets are available.
