MEGADOG CELEBRATED IT'S 30th ANNIVERSARY ON NOVEMBER 21st, 2015.

The Megadog organistation staged it's first event since 2001 to celebrate the passing of 30 years since a group of friends had the idea to run a regular club night at an obscure venue in North London which became known as Club Dog. Club Dog ran as a weekly multimedia event featuring a miriad of live acts, performance artists, films, projections and DJ's for 7 years from 1985 before mutating between 1991 and 1993 into the travelling psychedelic dance music extravaganza Megadog.

The legendary live electronica, dance music and performance event toured to venues all over the UK and Europe throughout the 1990's hosting performances by many of the era's key electronic music innovators and coming to roost every month at residencies at The Rocket in North London and the Manchester Academy.

2500 people made it to the sell-out 30th anniversary show at the Manchester Academy on November 21st, 2015 for a night of live performances from past Megadog stalwarts Dreadzone, Eat Static and System 7, classic sets from Megadog's original DJ's Michael Dog and Templehead along with MC T Bag, circus performance from The Curious Company, Worldwalker and The Divine Company, eye-popping lighting design by The Coloursound Experiment and video projections by VJ's Peeka, Eefee and Antonio Pagano.

The whole event was captured from start to finish by Jake from Smiley's GoPro Videos who managed to condense 7 hours into 18 minutes to produce this snapshot of an amazing night....

A big thank you to everyone who was there for bringing such positive energy and to everyone who ever came to a Club Dog or Megadog event over the years....we couldn't and wouldn't have done it without you!
