Well-known Los Angeles event Low End Theory has announced that it will be closing its doors on August 8, 2018.

The long-running party is wrapping up a successful run that took place in Los Angeles for over a decade. Founded by Alpha Pup label-boss Daddy Kev in 2006, Low End Theory has continued to have an iconic impact on the LA beat scene. Regular performers have included Flying Lotus, Daedelus, Nosaj Thing, Jonwayne and more. Thom Yorke, Amon Tobin and James Blake have even graced the decks of this memorable party.

The event ran every Wednesday night at Lincoln Heights venue The Airliner, with offshoots in other cities across the globe, including San Francisco and Tokyo.

“What a long strange trip it’s been,” the group wrote in an Instagram post. “There are several factors affecting this decision. Family obligations. Work demands. Life. The general consensus amongst the residents is that we have overstayed our welcome, and our greatest hope now is that the final ten weeks of Low End Theory can serve as a time for the beat community to set aside our differences, come together, and hopefully remember what made Low End Theory a special place to begin with: the music.

The final Low End Theory will go off August 8, 2018.

What a long strange trip it's been. First and foremost, the residents of Low End Theory would like to offer our sincerest gratitude for the nearly 12 years of support. It has been an honor and privilege to serve in the capacity we have, rocking over 600 Wednesdays at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights, as well as various tours and spot dates across the US, Asia, Europe and Africa. To every artist who has blessed our stage, we are grateful. To every person who has joined us on the dancefloor, you are the primary source of inspiration for making Low End Theory happen every Wednesday since October 2006. The journey has not been without its challenges. It is therefore with a sense of sadness that we are announcing our last ten shows, starting tonight at the Airliner in Lincoln Heights, with the final Low End Theory planned for August 8. There are several factors affecting this decision. Family obligations. Work demands. Life. The general consensus amongst the residents is that we have overstayed our welcome, and our greatest hope now is that the final ten weeks of Low End Theory can serve as a time for the beat community to set aside our differences, come together, and hopefully remember what made Low End Theory a special place to begin with: the music. Very truly yours, @daddykev @nobodybeats @djdstyles #lowendtheory
