Here at The Harley we’re big fans of top quality music in a friendly, non-judgemental environment – and if it’s great value for money, then all the better.

That’s part of the reasoning behind our new, completely free midweek knees-up, No Policy. Every Wednesday night we'll invite some of our favourite DJs along and give them complete freedom to play whatever they want to play, with no limitations or guidance on musical style or genre. To kick things off with a bang we’ve recruited NTS Radio show and former Boiler Room host Nic Tasker to delve deep into his record bag on February 25th, with Rinse FM’s rising star Josey Rebelle stopping by the week after on March 4th.

We’ve also fashioned the latest edition of our #weekendstartshere playlist in the No Policy spirit – check out our wide-ranging selections below.

We’ve got a jam-packed late-night schedule over the next few weeks, kicked off appropriately enough with JAM&BUN’s debut at The Harley tonight, with Amsterdam drum’n’bass crew Cheeky Monday landing here tomorrow and an ensemble of local favourites taking to the decks on Saturday for #2 of Unit 3 Sessions.

Next week sees Tasker here on Wednesday (Feb 25th), Souljam returning for another boogie on Thursday night (Feb 26th), Thrillhouse hosting Peverelist on Friday (Feb 27th) and Make It Real have enlisted PBR Streetgang as their February headliner on Saturday night (Feb 28th).

In amongst all that we have the excellent Blossoms swinging by this Saturday night for a live set as part of their UK tour – tickets available through the Harley Live website.

We’ve got a rather jam-packed fortnight ahead here at The Harley, and we’re excited to be welcoming along a mixture of both old friends and new faces.

To toast the arrival of one of those new faces, well-established Tyneside party-starters Lively Up, we've knocked up a fitting #weekendstartshere playlist ahead of their debut outing in the Steel City next Friday (Feb 13th). For that date they’ll be bringing along true UK hip-hop royalty in the form of Rodney P, so we've assembled a selection of some of the genre’s finest moments.

Before that we’ve got The Golden Boy also making his Sheffield debut for Gett Off tonight, DubCafe have enlisted drum ‘n’ bass legend Doc Scott for their latest party here tomorrow night, while Steel City Groove will be joined by Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson on Saturday for a night of expertly selected soulful house.

Kicking off the weekend nice and early next week we’ve got Why Front spinning tropical house and afrobeat on Thursday night, then Lively Up take charge of Friday’s proceedings before we host a very special Valentine’s Day special on Saturday, with none other than DJ Luck & MC Neat stopping by to once more get our dancefloor pumping.

We’re delighted to present the latest in our #weekendstartshere Spotify playlist series, with this edition coming from the hardcore-loving mind of our Friday night headliner, Mella Dee. Combining some classic early ‘90s rave with more current grime and bass, this is a high-energy, no nonsense belter of a selection.

Ahead of Mella Dee taking to the DJ booth tomorrow, we’ve got DMK closing out our collaboration with local fundraisers Late Nite Vibez tonight before our pals at Banana Hill take charge of affairs on Saturday night, with a three-hour set from Amsterdam’s Mr Mendel.

Leading the dancing action next week are SoulJam, who make their much-anticipated return to The Harley on Thursday to celebrate their first birthday, then Hackman joins the Nice Like Rice party on Friday night before Deep Medi / Brownswood innovator Swindle rounds out the month for us in style on Saturday 31st.

Next week also sees our first live gig of 2015, as we bring you Mali’s much talked-about ‘desert blues’ outfit Songhoy Blues as part of Independent Venue Week – full info and tickets here.

A Happy Harley New Year!

Please take our hand as we stumble together into the strange new world that is 2015. To ease you into the New Year, we’re currently running a rather special January sale that covers both bar and restaurant – head over to Facebook for the full low-down.

To kick the year off, we’ve lined up a packed programme of great music throughout the month – including a string of nights in partnership with local homelessness campaigners Late Nite Vibez, for which all proceeds on the door will go towards helping the disadvantaged of Sheffield.

Over the next week or so, we’ve got DMK, Dan J of Huddle and Chris Moore of GrowMore and new garage and grime upstarts Bluewave all taking to the decks as part of the initiative – full info can be found on the Facebook event, come on down and support a very worthy cause!

On top of that, we’re excited to be hosting Keysound affiliate Grievous Angel for some brooding 2step on Saturday (Jan 10th), then next weekend we welcome Sheffield legend Solid State along on Friday (Jan 16th) for the latest instalment of Make It Real, then it’s over to the chaps from Dusk ‘Til Dawn on Saturday (Jan 17th) to give our foundations a thorough breakbeat rinse-out.

We’ve also assembled a Spotify playlist of 15 of the artists we think are going to shine in '15, featuring Future Brown, Shamir, Girlpool, Ghost Culture, Nao and more – check it out below:
