On Sat 5 Aug, Hacienda Classical is returning to the south coast at Brighton Racecourse, following their sell-out performance last May at the Brighton Dome. The widely acclaimed performance brings you well known songs with a classical twist, uniting seminal DJ’s and special guests as FAC51 The Hacienda and Manchester Camerata collaborate once more.
“A near two-hour blend of house music’s greatest players, with an audience dancing and singing from the off.” Is how MixMag described to show. “Dazzling mirror-ball speckles are flung out over a crowd whose jubilant euphoria almost blows the roof off.”
The combination of these two hugely respected and successful acts breathes new life into the classic dance anthems. As seen in the Channel4 documentary Hacienda House Orchestra, this incredible show sees the DJ’s who shaped The Hacienda’s sound – Mike Pickering and Graeme Park – join forces with the Camerata and an array of Special Guests, for a night of classic dance music. Innovatively adapted, and meticulously arranged.
The act have had sell out performances in some of the country’s biggest spaces. Last year they sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall, Glasgow’s SEE Hydro Arena and Manchester’s Castlefield arena. As well as their lightning-quick selling show at The Brighton Dome as part of the city’s 2016 festival. But now they return to the south coast with a brand new spectacle!
In its second year, the project returns for a run of shows across the country as they recreate the seminal tracks that defined a generation at The Hacienda club. Promising an all-new set list, primed to create an inspirational night. Reactions to the concerts have been widely celebrated with excellent reviews and dates selling out in minutes.
