Decades on from its closure, iconic Manchester club The Haçienda still remains one of the biggest and most iconic names within the dance music scene today, having massively shaped and significantly influenced UK dance and rave culture.
As well as being a hotspot for ravers, household names in the indie world such as the Happy Mondays, The Smiths and The Stone Roses were just some of the famous faces to make their mark at the venue, and the venue is truly a huge part of Manchester's cultural identity.
Keeping the spirt of the legendary club alive are two of the most pivotal residents who shaped the sound of the Haçienda - Mike Pickering and Graeme Park - collaborate with Manchester's world-class experimental Camerta Orchestra for a unique night of dance classics adapted and performed with classical instruments.
The critically acclaimed show, which has been a smash hit with clubbers and dance music fans since its debut in 2016, will come to Scarborough's massive Open Air Theatre on Saturday 8th June for what promises to be an unforgettable summer show.
Support on the night comes from Manchester techno pioneers 808 State and a DJ set from music legend, and founding member of Joy Division and New Order, Peter Hook.
