With 1.6 million people tuning in to watch the first Hacienda House Party, it was only natural that they’d do a follow up, and it’s coming this Saturday 9th May a 12pm.

The Hacienda will throw open its distinctively numbered doors for “The Hacienda House Part II” with United We Stream for another epic twelve hour session.

Some of the greatest US DJ legends will be supplying exclusive sets, whist many of The Hacienda’s finest play out from our secret lockdown studio straight out of the Greater Manchester region.

The DJ line up again amasses some of finest American originators and producers from their respective scenes, New York’s seminal talents of Danny Tenaglia, Louie Vega and a man who needs no introduction to Factory Records and The Hacienda, Arthur Baker.

Along with Detroit’s and Inner City’s Kevin Saunderson and then DJ Pierre’s Wild Pytch skills from Chicago, they form our roster of five international friends for this twelve hour stretch.

From The Hacienda and beyond, Graeme Park and Jon Dasilva return to the establishment and are joined for the day by fellow residents Allister Whitehead, Peter Hook and DJ Paulette.

Meanwhile Hacienda Classical with Manchester Camerata is putting together a very special one off virtual live show for the evening.

DJ Graeme Park and musical director Tim Crooks bring together the Camerata players, additional musicians, our vocalists including Yvonne Shelton, Melanie Williams, Rae Hall and some very special surprise guests, all arranged and performed under current social distancing restrictions.

Hacienda Classical has seen FAC51 team up with its hometown orchestra Manchester Camerata since its debut in 2016 and highlights include some nine sold out concerts at Castlefield Bowl and The Royal Albert Hall with headline appearances at Kendall Calling, Isle Of Wight Festival (twice) and opening Glastonbury Festival on its Pyramid Stage.

Manchester Camerata is “Britain’s most adventurous orchestra”, according to The Times, and whilst working as one of the very best of the UK’s performing orchestras, their long-standing work in the community with schools, care homes and people living with dementia shows their great compassion for and commitment to the Greater Manchester region.


The Hacienda House Party Part II is being broadcast by United We Stream Greater Manchester from 12 noon onwards to raise vital funds for Greater Manchester’s night time economy, creative and cultural organisations, Nordoff Robbins and The Greater Manchester’s Mayor’s Charity.
