Below 8th Birthday in The Arena on Sat 4th May 2013
TAKING PLACE OVER 4TH & 5TH MAY 2013
“I remember being wet behind the ears when throwing an illegal warehouse rave. It was one of the first Below Warehouse parties at Big Danny's place in Jewellery Quarter. Non the wiser, the best solution we had for selling tickets to the customers was… eBay 'buy it now'!”
Those are the words of one half of the team behind BELOW. The party has come a long way since then, initially having gone against the grain and thrown Sunday daytime parties. Since then, the night has inspired and influenced the city no end, with great parties in non-commercial spaces, and now they celebrate with one of their most ambitious events yet across three different venues utilizing some of The Rainbow’s most unique spaces.
The first part of the birthday takes place on May 4th at The Rainbow Warehouse, Arena and in the Rainbow Courtyard. The party has been put together by co founders Adam Shelton and Lee McDonald as an overview of their influences to date and will see a very special live PA from Inner City, plus sets from house gangster DJ Sneak, techno innovator Derrick May, New York house star Todd Terry, plus Kevin Saunderson, Mr C and of course Adam Shelton.
Then there is a return to basics; to what Below is all about – a very special afterparty running from midnight in the Rainbow Warehouse with Adam Shelton and Alex Arnount b2b, Frenchy and Tristan da Cunha b2b and for the real hardcore out there the party will carry on into Sunday just as Below always has, with more goodies in the hallowed Rainbow Courtyard – a place which lends itself perfectly to twisted afterhours activities and is the perfect encapsulation of the Below ethos. This time headlining will be hot properties Paranoid London, Matthew Styles, H Foundation, Bloody Mary and Tom Craven will all play.
