  • Hacienda Classical

"What do you get if you mix a load of iconic acid house bangers with an orchestra? Probably the best rave since 1997, that’s what... A night of soaring synth riffs, euphoric drops and massive tunes." – NME“A near two hour, 21 track blend of house music's greatest players, complete with backing singers and an audience dancing and singing from the off. Dazzling mirror-ball speckles are flung out over a crowd whose jubilant euphoria almost blows the roof off." - Mixmag

The music that defined dance music will be reinterpreted at the event by a full classical orchestra alongside the influential DJs and artists, as part of an innovative, live fusion event which includes Inner City, 808 State, New Order, The Brand New Heavies, A Guy Called Gerald and more.

This special Christmas show will be a one off extravaganza with the best production and design to make it a very special event for dance music and Madchester fans to experience the atmosphere of the Manchester club which came to shape a generation.
