So the night does not end in Greenhead Park. Think of the exodus from the park more as half time, as the Stopover gears up for the second half with a few uniquely different and great events in the centre of Huddersfield. We will be running between all of the events, but as is often the case, we’ll probably all end up at The House Party at The Other Rooms…
THE OTHER ROOMS HOUSE PARTY
We all love a House Party, right? It so happened the idea came to us when we arrived at The Other Rooms, which was in the middle of a refurbishment a couple of weeks ago. The owner has kindly allowed us make The Other Rooms after-party HQ as it were. Nick Etwell, who you may recognise from playing Trumpet with Mumford & Sons over the past couple of years, has brought up his exceptional band The Filthy Six from London to play their boogaloo/funk/soul/musicyoucannotstandstillto concoction in the first room. Downstairs, amongst the stone arches and caves and coves, people can get away from the craziness for a moment, whilst the fantastic Huddersfield natives “The Rag Tags” and M&S touring veteran “Albatross”, will be serenading and rocking out in the back room. It’s hopefully going to cater for every flight of fancy, apart from the hardcore at Tokyo’s and happily amused at Club 122.

COMEDY AT CLUB 122
For those who have had their fair share of music throughout the day, and would something a bit different, it is with great pleasure that we have incorporated a Comedy show, with a couple of our favourite emerging comedians travelling to Huddersfield for the event. Kicking off at Midnight at Dominic Woodward, prepare to have your sides split open, or fall off your proverbial chair as the fantastically sharp Alfie Brown dissects popular culture, and the award winning Piff The Magic Dragon masterfully combines comedy and magic.

Venue: Bar 122, 120 New Street, Huddersfield, HD1 2UD

TOKYOS NIGHTCLUB - DJ set on terrace
Tokyo’s is where the rave is at. Well, more of an indie rave, but it’s going to be loud, and there’ll be dancing, and drinking, and at some point during the night Ben will be dropping in to spin some of his favourite tunes from the “golden year of naughties indie” - 2006 (The Strokes, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys etc). Tokyo’s has multiple rooms, and bars, spread across three floors, the usual night will be going on, but look out for us we’ll be there somewhere.. at some point.

Ps. the Stopover gates open at 3pm and the event is due to finish at 11pm.
