The Return of Dave Haslam!
Dave Haslam DJ’d over 450 times at the Haçienda throughout the ‘Madchester’ years in the 80s. His open-minded, ground-breaking DJing became the focus for Madchester’s indie dance fraternity!
Ian Brown, Time Burgess, Justin Roberton and the Chemical Brothers have all credited Haslam as an inspiration.
He describes his DJing philosophy as “playing the best records ever made, one after the other” and has been described as “the man with golden ears.”
We’re excited to announce our,THE RETURN OF DAVE HASLAM, party on Sat 25th November!
+ Jason Boardman (Aficionado Recordings) will be warming you up from 7pm.
