Sing along to Castles in the Sky as dance legend Ian Van Dahl heads to South Shields

Dance legend Ian Van Dahl will be making his South Shields debut, raising the roof at a town centre night spot.

The DJ, who is behind classics such as Castles in The Sky, Reason and Try, will make his first appearance in South Shields at Jade Thirlwall’s Industry nightclub in Ocean Road on Saturday, July 30.

Ian Van Dahl was the group name for the trance act who rose to fame with the tracks, with DJ Christophe Chantzis, who will be hitting the decks at Industry, becoming one of Belgium’s most-successful producers.
