Clubbing mums
Do people ever really grow out of clubibng? Not according to a new UK survey, that reveals a whole new swathe of clubbers hitting the floors after the kids have grown up…

Age is a weird thing in clubland. When we were filming at Ministry of Sound the other month, the music was a “mature” genre (house) and several of the DJs were the “wrong” side of 50, yet the audience was predominantly teenage. On the other hand, where we’re based (Spain – Ibiza vibe, innit?) the only credential you need to go clubbing, any age, is whether you can stand the pace. And mobile DJs know you have to play for all generations, too.

So maybe it’s actually no surprise that glam mums and rave dads are donning their dancing shoes once the kids grow up and hitting the clubs (once again). That’s the subject of our lead story this week – enjoy, and keep at it, whatever your age!
