Progress Bar (Paradiso)

Founded in 2015, Progress Bar is a club night dedicated to communal desire and collective joy. Progress Bar had sessions in Brighton, and episodes in Vilnius, Kharkiv, Pristina and Amsterdam. More than 100 artists, academics and activists from all over the planet have been featured at Progress Bar.

Progress Bar is for people interested in the intersection of music you wanna shazam, looks you wanna gram, and politics that bang. Every episode starts with a 90-minute talk show with guests talking about their work in art, music and social action, and the material conditions that shape it. After the talks people move into the club, and, having spent time listening to the artists talk, dancing to their music will be even more magical.
