Sligo-based promoters Motion broke the news yesterday that Electric Avenue & Anderson’s is set to close. The nightclub was a vital part of Sligo’s nightlife culture, having previously hosted Green Velvet, Mella Dee, Jenny Greene and Alan Fitzpatrick, among others.

Sligo’s Electric Avenue & Anderson‘s is set to close after Motion Events Ireland broke the news via Instagram. “We are sad to hear of the closure of Electric Avenue & Anderson’s venue in Sligo, it was the scene of some of our favourite shows over the years and it’s a big loss to the Sligo music scene.”

The venue was one of Sligo’s premier nightclubs, with a large-scale space suitable for hosting international performers. The space was at the forefront of electronic music in Sligo, showcasing a variety of local talent while also providing Sligo residents with the opportunity to see a number of in-demand artists ranging from Jax Jones to FJAAK.

Electric Avenue & Anderson’s departure leaves a hole in Sligo’s nightlife industry. It was one of the only purpose-built nightclubs in the town and was often a go-to space for students and dancers from Sligo and the surrounding areas.

Motion said via Instagram “We made some great memories and great friends over the years at this venue and want to thank all the staff and team for their help and support when it came to shows and wish them the best for the future.”
