Hacienda Classical

About Hacienda Classical

This event will feature the third new set of Hacienda Classical which is currently being prepared by DJ's Graeme Park and Mike Pickering alongside executive producer Peter Hook musical director Tim Crooks. This version will once again see many new classic tracks added to the repertoire for the Hacienda Classical players and special guests.

The new soundtrack will be aired for the first time in Glasgow Saturday 19th May 2018.

Hacienda Classical which sees the clubs original DJ partnership, Graeme Park and Mike Pickering reinterpret seminal dance classics with the orchestra, conductor Tim Crooks has received rave reviews since its first Bridgewater Hall concerts only 20 months ago. In less than two years since it has performed 25 concerts playing to audiences totalling around 150,000 in total.

The show has well outperformed any expectations and has seen an unrivalled atmosphere from the audiences attending the shows as well as from critics many of who have awarded the show five starts from the outset. Even at the very first Bridgewater Hall show, The Times gave it top marks declaring that "the atmosphere was incredible."

Similar rave reviews followed from the first Royal Albert Hall visit as NME called it "Probably the best rave since 1997" whilst Mixmag termed the event. "a near two hour blend of house music's greatest players with an audience dancing and singing from the off."

The sold out Scottish dates in 2016 and 2017 at the SSE Hydro also gained great reviews from the Scottish press. The Sunday Mail labelled the show "absolute genius" and said "it worked like a dream " whilst The Wee Review gave it five stars calling "the set-up a well-oiled machine and the atmosphere in the venue joyous."

Hacienda Classical's biggest single audience to date came as it opened Glastonbury's Festival's Pyramid Stage in June this year and it has also headlined other festivals including The Big Feastival, Kew The Music, Lytham Festival and others.

As The Hacienda's dance heritage has collided with the world of classical music, the concerts have been widely praised with great audience responses from the gigs and dates selling out in minute.

Now coming into its third year, these inspirational nights have recreated the tunes that defined a generation at the original club, renewed afresh and rearranged with a classical orchestra.
