This Easter Saturday, The Hacienda holds ‘The Hacienda House Party‘, an all-day online club that will bring together the finest DJ’s, residents and rock stars that have frequented FAC51 to support Manchester’s creative community and charities.
A trio of American house legends, Todd Terry, Roger Sanchez and David Morales top the bill, playing exclusively from across the Atlantic.
They join The Hacienda’s own Graeme Park, Jon Dasilva, Tom Wainwright and K Klass (Live PA) who turn in their sets from a special lockdown studio somewhere in the Greater Manchester region.
Orbital’s Paul Hartnoll will also play a special live set spanning the group’s catalogue of classics as well as new and unreleased tracks whilst one of Chicago house’s very best exports Roy Davis Jr completes the roster.
Midway through the broadcast will be “An Audience With Peter Hook, Shaun Ryder & Graeme Park” as they chat about their shared histories and gigs together with John Robb and take questions from the online audience.
The Hacienda’s first ever “Stay-At-Home-Rave”, the entire event will be broadcast by United We Stream from 12pm on Saturday 11th April.
United We Stream is free to watch, but viewers can donate via the website, with all income of the stream going directly to a relief fund with 8% of funds raised donated to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy Charity, 22% donated to the Mayor Of Greater Manchester’s Charity, meaning 70% of all funding generated going specifically to support the Greater Manchester’s night time economy music venues, restaurants, bars, freelancers and cultural organisations who are unable to work or operate their businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The channel is also used for positive public service announcements such as reinforcing the #StayHome message to support the NHS and emergency services, and other essential messaging regarding safety and social distancing.
Entertaining locally and globally at the same time, The Hacienda and its place in Manchester’s and music culture makes “The Hacienda House Party” another excellent reason to stay indoors this Saturday in current circumstances.
