Legendary Manchester club Sankeys could well be coming to Brighton. The brand has teamed up with The Night Time Industries Association to launch a new campaign across 20 UK towns and cities. Vote for the club to come to Brighton and spread the word using the hashtag #DoYouWannaSankeys. There’s no set number of how many clubs they will build nationwide, but if there is enough interest they will consider the given location.
World-renowned for their venues and events, they’ve held the torch for the UK club scene for 22 years. Their top of the range nightclubs feature state of the art sound systems, lighting, different rooms, cinema screens and outdoor terraces. After more than two decades the original Manchester venue recently closed its doors for good, having hosted the likes of Daft Punk, Todd Terry and The Chemical Brothers. But now the brand is stronger than ever with clubs in Birmingham and Ibiza, and London’s new Sankeys East, which has sold out every night since opening.
They’re passionate about saving venues and preserving the UK club scene. The campaign was sparked partly by last year’s huge and successful movement to reopen London superclub Fabric. According to Sankeys, countless other British clubs and music venues have shut their doors over the last ten years.
Brighton has some of the best nightlife in the UK and the best live music scene outside of London with hundreds of people flocking here to party every weekend. Sankeys would be a fantastic addition to the scene here and would attract worldwide DJs and dance acts.
