Blow Up a bona-fide legendary club night at the centre of the mid-Nineties Brit Pop explosion, cited as the catalyst and birth place of the Britpop scene, influencing the style and sound of a generation. Blow Up was voted No.4 in Time Out’s Top Ten Clubs of the 90s, described as one of ‘5 Classic Clubs of Our Time‘ by Vox Magazine (alongside The Blitz Club, Shoom, The Roxy) and as ‘The club that changed the world’ by Melody Maker. Describing Blow Up in Time Out’s London Calling book as “the breeding ground of the Brit Pop sound” and in NME’s Original’s Blow Up was listed as a Top Ten Britpop Moment. In July 2022 Time Out once again listed Blow Up as one of the greatest London clubs of the past 40 years.

From its origins at The Laurel Tree, Camden Town (1993-1996) the first night of which was 16th October 1993, to Soho venues the Wag Club (1996-2001), the Metro Club (2002-2009) and various other London  venues inbetween. In the 2010s Blow Up held events at Peckham’s Bussey Building and the Troubadour whilst held a weekly Friday night residency at the St Moritz Club, Wardour St Soho (2015-2020) until the nightlife lockdown in 2020. Finally returning for a three night residency at Vout O Reenee’s London (Oct – December 2022). Blow Up is now one of the longest running club nights in London. 

Blow Up has also hosted events around the UK and internationally over the years, including across Europe, USA, Russia and Japan. Whilst the Blow Up club compilations (‘Blow Up A-Go-Go!’ and ‘Blow Up presents Exclusive Blend’) have increased the reach of Blow Up around the world..
