HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Tom Higham has built his reputation on residencies at some of the North’s most revered nightclubs, including Digital Newcastle, Cosmic Ballroom, O2 Academy Sheffield and MINT Club in Leeds. He’s supported some of the world’s biggest DJs: including closing for Mark Knight at Nocturnal, playing alongside Steve Angello at his Size Matters Festival, and going back to back with Sonny Fodera at Digital.
His biggest break came through his residency at Hau5, which lead to weekly capacity gigs in Newcastle, Sheffield and Middlesbrough, as well as seeing Tom join the likes of Chase & Status, Sigma & Robin Schulz on the main stage at Hau5: The Festival. He has also established himself on the international circuit, with bookings at Amnesia in Ibiza, the White Hub in Chamonix, headline sets at Blackout Music Festival in Malta, and four consecutive seasons in Mallorca with residencies at Nikki Beach, Key West and Pacha.
His first forays into music production led to being signed by Mark Mendes’ STARTER Records, with support from Kryder, Simon De Jano & Paris & Simo. Following a shift in musical direction, Tom has also launched his own series of parties “KINGDOM” alongside co-founder Adam Christie, with a focus on supporting homegrown talent, with past guests including Lee Walker, Elliot Adamson and Jerome Price.
