A Brief History of Stealth

Stealth is the award-winner of not just the ‘Best Club’ in Nottingham, but also ‘Best Club in the Midlands’. The venue has been described as a club with an “unreal sound system” – “the best techno sound quality [in] Nottingham by far”. The infamous sound system was upgraded in 2013, with numerous infill speakers fitted to make the music being pumped out of the Funktion One stacks, clearer and louder than ever before.

Although the continuous improvements at Stealth over the years have led to numerous awards and an ultimate reputation, Stealth has been hosting big names since opening its doors in 2004. Derrick Carter, Carl Craig and Radio 1’s Annie Mac all played sets within the first year.

Stealth has been known to keep up with the ever constant changes to the music scene, and support all genres including those in their infancy. 2011 saw both the venue and the genre of house increase in popularity. Artists such as DJ EZ, Duke Dumont, Hannah Wants, Skream and other big names were seen in the line-up for New Year’s Eve in 2011 and 2012. The 2011 line-up at the venue was even described by FACT magazine as one of the best in the country.

Despite Stealth’s evident history of showcasing dance music, other genres are regularly played at the venue including Garage, hip-hop and disco. Stealth aims to suit a variety of music tastes, so that everybody can be united through music, and create memories for life.
