Dingwalls originally opened in 1973 as “Dingwalls Dancehall” and has had a range of different musical functions throughout its 50 year lifespan.

The venue has been a Jazz Bar owned by legendary DJ Gilles Peterson and Patrick Forge, before moving back to its roots of being a permanent part of the Camden gigging scene now with Vince Power. Holding host to iconic shows such as Blondie’s debut, Coldplay, Etta James, Foo Fighters, R.E.M and The Strokes, the venue also had a large part to play in Camden’s punk boom with The Clash, Sex Pistols and The Ramones regularly appearing.
