Calligraphy is the events series hosting club nights at O2 Academies all over the UK with a keen eye on grime, garage, jungle, dub and UK hip-hop.
After hugely successful events in Glasgow and Oxford, Calligraphy will descend upon Leeds on October 2nd to host Pitched Up, a coming together of some of the most esteemed grime artists from across the country.
BBC Radio 1Xtra host DJ Target, Danny Weed, Bugzy Malone and Section Boyz will all be featuring. There will also be a hefty selection of local names playing everything from bassline to garage, with Logan Sama, DJ Q, Tom Zanetti, Dialect, Ko Kane and more turning out to provide the sounds.
If one room of tunes isn’t enough, the downstairs room of Leeds’ O2 Academy will be hosted by BASSLIME, a YouTube channel come events series that will be hosting club nights at Wire from September onwards. Here Vital Techniques and Mikey B will be on the ones and twos.
And if you need any more convincing, just have a look at what happened at the last Calligraphy show with none other than Skepta, on the video below.
