Fatboy Slim to headline Sankeys Warehouse on New Years Day…
Following on from the sell out success of the launch party of Sankeys Warehouse last weekend where over 5,000 clubbers witnessed the epic start of the warehouse series, Sankeys Warehouse have announced their return to Manchester at the Iconic Victoria Warehouse for their 2nd instalment on New Years Day 2016.
With a hard to beat launch line up which included a world exclusive back to back set from house music legends Basement Jaxx & Armand van Helden, Sankeys Warehouse have pulled out all the stops once more to being you a mega New Years day party headlined by none other than dance music king and chart topping producer Fatboy Slim.
Having played to millions of people around the world, at vast parties of his own on Brighton beach, in Brazil and during the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony, there really is no one quite like Fatboy Slim. As well as being a party starting DJ with an unrivalled understanding of dance, he has also turned out countless crossover hits, from ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’, to ‘Praise You’, to ‘Rockerfella Skank’, and is a one man dance music tastemaker.
Ibiza heavyweights Tube & Berger join the line up for the mega New Years Day party. As one of the highest selling acts on Beatport on 2014 & 2015, the German duo are one of the hottest acts in the world and clubbers will find their blend of thoughtful & considered house music pull incessantly at their hearts & at their feet.
Netherlands Based, Defected Records resident Franky Rizardo brings his ‘Snappy House’ sounds to the show, After playing The Redlight Closing party in Ibiza it was only right to bring him to Manchester to kick start the new year.
Sankeys Ibiza 2015 Award winners Matt Jam Lamont & Sam Holt round up phase 1 of the line up announcement. As on unceasing champion on the UK dance music scene, the godfather of garage; Matt Jam Lamont who was voted ‘best resident via on online clubbing poll will bring his unique style to the party as well as Sankeys Ibiza ‘best newcomer’ award winner Sam Holt who returns after wowing clubbers with his Sankeys Classics set at the launch party of Sankeys Warehouse.
Many more acts will be announced on Phase 2 of the line up on Tuesday 3rd November for the Sankeys Warehouse New years Day party, which will see many more acts and the infamous Sankeys Production take over 4 rooms of the iconic industrial warehouse venue.
David Vincent says “The first event went way beyond our expectations and the feedback online has been fantastic. To see a lot of people say on social media how it was the best Warehouse party Manchester has seen in a long while put a tear in my eye and vindicated all the hard work, sweat and love the Sankeys Warehouse team put into the party. Thank god the next one is on New Years Day rather than in 10 years time. If people thought the first event was what it was, wait until they see the production levels for the next show as I know I can get it possibly up 50% better next time, but I am not going to say how. I am so excited that Fatboy Slim is playing this show and cannot wait to release phase 2 of our line up on November 3rd. Lets party Madchester, the sheriff is back in town”
