Dave Haslam is BACK!
For our big, end of April party, we’re welcoming back Haçienda legend, Dave Haslam!
Dave Haslam DJ’d over 450 times at the Haçienda throughout the ‘Madchester’ years in the 80s. His open-minded, ground-breaking DJing became the focus for Madchester’s indie dance fraternity. Ian Brown, Tim Burgess, Justin Roberton and the Chemical Brothers have all credited Haslam as an inspiration. He describes his DJing philosophy as “playing the best records ever made, one after the other” and has been nicknamed “the man with golden ears.”Across the Tracks
will be opening up the night from 8pm and we’ll be going until the early hours.
When: Sat 28th April
Time: 8pm start
