Hacienda Good Friday starring the DJ's that defined the original venue

FAC 51 The Hacienda’s first Manchester event of 2013 sees the club return to Sankeys this Easter with a selection of the club’s finest ever residents performing at Hacienda Good Friday 29th March in an night that mixes the music, atmosphere and the DJ’s that defined the original venue.


Together again, at the top of the bill, Graeme Park and Mike Pickering resume their legendary partnership, together in Manchester for FAC51 for the first time in five years, playing both individual sets and then a very special and unique back to back session.


Joining Mike and Graeme, tastemaker DJ Greg Wilson also comes back to the Hac for a three hour set in Spektrum upstairs. Greg became a resident at The Haçienda in 1983, having previously cut his teeth at The Wigan Pier and shaped the musical policy of The Haç with his individualistic take on early US electro and disco, a style showcased in his acclaimed “Credit To The Edit” series of albums and his newly announce


Rounding up the returning residents, Jon Dasilva also brings back his musical skills on Good Friday which have been well known to The Hac ever since Jon became a regular at the club with Hot in 1988. Jon’s musical tastes remain adventurous and he retains the anything goes spirit of Acid House, recently enjoying a huge international hit with “Love Somebody Else”, a reworking of his classic remix with  Maceo Plex which has been nominated as The International Dance Music Awards “Best House Track” of 2012.


Jon has opted to play a "classic warm up set" prior to Park and Pickering’s double header. Jon was infamous back during the Hot nights for his eccentric and eclectic sets replete with his much copied use of sound effects and "drops" and has often been cited as an influence upon Balearic masters such as Richard Moonboots Bithell


Finishing up the extensive bill, Manchester Underground’s Russ brings his boxes to Spektrum for a vinyl only set, Black Grape’s Kermit performs a PA while Herbie Saccani, James Noon and friends take charge of Sankey’s bar.


One more surprise for Hacienda Good Friday sees a live performance by Davos, who shot to prominence with his Youtube Piano House clip in December which has received some 200,000 views. Davos merges classic piano breaks from anthemic tunes into his set from the likes of Rythm Is Rythm, Jinny, Soft House Company, Sterling Void and more, and he is increasingly in demand from the best festivals and clubs for his live set.
