DEAFQON: The Last Dance is a charity event organised by Kyle Lindsay and Sam Boyd. The event was created to raise funds for the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) Scotland to give back to the amazing support that NDCS has given their family’s youngest, Robyn Boyd, who was born profoundly deaf.
The event has been running for three years now and has raised almost £8000 in total.
This year all proceeds from ticket sales and donations will be donated to the Dumfries and Galloway section of the NDCS to support local families and deaf children in their early childhood.
Angela Kirk, Chairperson of Dumfries and Galloway Deaf Children’s Society said “We have just started back up after Covid -19 and the money raised will be so beneficial to the young people in our community for future activities and events that we are planning”
For those who cannot attend the event but still want to donate, there is a Just Giving donation link provided.
This year’s Deafqon event is going to be held on April 1, 2023, at Chancer’s Nightclub, which is now known as Club 365. The event will open at 8:30 PM and run until 4 in the morning. The ticket price for the event is £10, and all ticket sales go directly to charity. You can book online or pay on the door.
The organizers of Deafqon have brought in DJs from all over the UK who play at the biggest hard dance festivals in Europe. They are also giving up-and-coming DJs from Dumfries a chance to showcase their talent. The event will have two floors with two separate events, one featuring hard dance and the other hard techno. There will be a total of 13 DJs across both floors, promising an action-packed night for attendees.
The organisers expressed their gratitude to the owner of Club 365, Brian, who has been very supportive of the event since its inception.
