Well, before anyone get’s carried away with ‘but what about Coronavirus’, plans can change, dates can change and the future is fairly unknown, but that doesn’t mean parties can’t be announced, especially ones of this calibre…
Celebrating some of the USA’s most iconic dance music pioneers, the first headliners have been revealed for FAC51 The Haçienda’s debut at London’s historic Tobacco Dock. Taking place next Easter on Good Friday, the all-day show will be the largest event the legendary nightclub has held in the capital.
As Masters At Work ‘Little’ Louie Vega and Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez have served to define house music as we know it over the past three decades. Amassing a wealth of classic tracks, originals and edits including “To Be In Love”, “I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun” and “Work”, their momentous catalogue draws influences from disco, soul, and funk and by adding the very essence of house, they made New York feel like the centre of their sound.
Over in Detroit, some 600 miles away, a trio who pioneered the development of techno, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson and Juan Atkins were embarking on their own musical revolution. As their electronic experiments laid the foundations for Detroit techno, they would later become known as The Belville Three and change the works with their signature sounds.
Meanwhile a very special guest is set a to join in to celebrate Flesh’s 30th anniversary as the trailblazing LGBTIQ+ party takes over the skylit Terrace in its own unique and inimitable style.
