Off Beat Indie Disco in Sheffield The Ultimate Indie Disco
Regular listeners to Gideon Coe's daily show will be familiar with his INDIE DISCO YEARS feature. We love it so much that we went on a quest to find the nation's best ever indie disco, past or present.

And we are delighted to announce the final winner of the 6 Music's Ultimate Indie Disco is...... OFFBEAT at Sheffield University. Find out more information about the night.

Listen throughout the day to 6 Music to hear Ultimate Indie Disco tracks played in chunks throughout the shows. The tracks are all suggested by the Offbeat organisers, based on the criteria of Offbeat dancefloor popularity, by coverage of the genres and the period they attempt to span, and the results of their annual 'festive 10' and of the alltime Offbeat poll they held to mark their 100th Offbeat last year.

Here are the tracks you'll hear:

During Gideon Coe - 1000-1300
Half Man Half Biscuit - Joy Division Ovengloves
Field Mice - Sensitive
Pixies - Where Is My Mind
Kenickie - Punka
Postal Service - This District Sleeps Alone Tonight

During Vic McGlynn - 1300-1600:
Violent Femmes - Blister In The Sun
Fall - Theme From Sparta FC #2
Le Tigre - Dececptacon
SFA - Drygioni

During Steve Lamacq's Show - 1600-1700:
Chuck - No No Ah
China Drum - Wuthering Heights
Hefner - Hymn For The Cigarettes
Smiths - Panic
Maximo Park - The Coast Is Always Changing

Thank you all for your nominations and votes and thinking back to being shoved about in the mosh pit or shuffling around on the edge of the dancefloor trying to gain the attention of the object of your affection.
