The sound that took house music worldwide...
This December we take a journey through the history of acid house with a live show and clubnight celebrating the genre's most iconic sounds.
The night begins with a live performance from the incredible Acid House Orchestra followed by an extended DJ set from Hacienda original, A Guy Called Gerald - the man behind the seminal anthem 'Voodoo Ray'. Get ready 9 hours filled with acid & hedonistic sounds providing non-stop dancing & feel good vibes until sunrise.
A 9-piece ensemble comprising live electronics, brass, percussion and more, The Acid House Orchestra will perform unique renditions of the most defining tracks from the sound's birth in Chicago clubs to its arrival in the UK raves. Expect a live journey through the early sounds of 808 state, A Guy Called Gerald, and LFO right through to the later sounds of The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers.
Following the live show we're honoured to be welcoming one of the genre's original OGs for a historic acid house DJ session.
THAT Acid House tune, nothing defines the birth of dance music as we know and love it than A Guy Called Gerald's stone cold classic Voodoo Ray.
