The upcoming techno scene in Milan is best shown in Tunnel Club. With an alternative club background of the 90s, the underground atmosphere still lingers here. The location is an old tunnel under the railway of Milan close to Central Station. The brick walls and steel pipes are still intact behind the clubs decor which give the club its underground feeling.

There are two standard nights in Tunnel Club and aside from these they have small Indie concerts as well. On Friday they have ‘Le Cannibale’: an alternative night with artistic features and electronic music. On Saturday there is ‘Classic’: this is where the top DJ’s of the techno scene come to play. A few of last years DJ’s were Ellen Alien, Nina Kraviz, Guy Gerber, Nicolaar Jaar, Henrik Schwarz and Ame & Dixon.

Although the crowd is hip and the club is alternative, this is not a typical Milan club where people only go to see and to be seen, people actually come here for the great music. The rather small size of the club makes for a great intimate atmosphere, especially with the Indie/Electronic nights. A few of last years performers were Wolf & Lamb, Soul Clap and Crystal Fighters.

You spend quite a lot at Tunnel Club: entrance is usually around 15 to 25 euros (depends on how big the DJ is) and you can get a drink for 8 euros. But this is not a lot more than in any other club in Milan. I recommend the Saturday nights, because I love techno music and the atmosphere that comes with it! Let’s hope this years performers will be as good as last years!
