Last year played host to Fire It Up’s Sankeys debut, leaving revellers in a state of delirium as the international superstar DJ, who will be returning for this exclusive North West Album Launch event, showcased an incredible production, ear-burstingly-class dance music, technical wizardry and even his legendary crowd surfing, (something not to be missed!) Fire It Up’s return will hit boiling point as one house music’s most memorable parties rolls into the city to create more life-long memories of all those involved.
Toolroom Record’s role in the World of house / electronic music has been and will forever be nothing short of legendary. A day rarely passes that doesn’t see a Toolroom release at the top end of House music charts and with a back catalogue boasting dance music champions including Deadmau5, Mark Knight, Avicii and Wolfgang Gartner just to name but a handful, the collaborative efforts of the two brands can only result in a world class show. The ‘Toolroom Knights” arenas that attract loyal fans by the thousand to the UK’s premier music festivals are as prominent and celebrated as any. A House music fan at any event bearing the Toolroom tag knows they are in safe hands and can be positive of a premier House music experience from the cream of the crop.
EDDIE HALLIWELL will be firing it up in the main room of Sankeys, with his breathtaking ability, awe-inspiring technical ability and everlasting energy (he’s almost like a Duracell rabbit at times) that sends worldwide audiences into raptures. In true Fire It Up style, the supporting cast is a powerhouse of musical talent consisting of the highly acclaimed Third Party, of Steve Angello’s Size Records, on the back of the release of their new summer anthem “Feel” with Cicada which has stormed the online charts. Adding to the festivities is Fire It Up favourite and guest of Tiesto at the world’s largest nightclub, Privilege, Ibiza. Kryder alike to Eddie is another technology abuser and is not shy of utilising multiple decks and effects racks. Mixmag Ibiza resident D.O.D will join the show continuing the 4 decks are better than 2 theme of the night and lastly, Gatecrasher resident Nick Coulson. Rounding off the line-up in Spektrum & The Bar is “Future Heroes” – Liam Wilson, Pete Bromage, Pete Moby, Sean Grainger, Leo Slater, Mark Fletcher, Jan Carstensen, Yannis Gorak b2b Grant Mizon, Daniel Rostron and Push Continue.
