The production then returns to headline the Isle Of Wight’s dance tent Friday 14th June joining Fatboy Slim, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Lily Allen, James, Courteeners and Richard Ashcroft among the acts already revealed for the line up.
Haçienda Classical also takes to the woods with two outdoor concerts as part of “Forest Live” the summer live music series of Forestry Commission England at Bedgebury Pinetum in Kent Saturday 15th June and Westonbirt Arboretum in Gloucestershire Sunday 16th June, both unique locations to experience the show, natural outdoor arenas set to a spectacular woodland backdrop.

At the start of July, Haçienda Classical returns the scenes of some of its most legendary nights as its is back at London’s Royal Albert Hall Saturday 6th July for its fourth event at the prestigious venue, with all three previous visits having sold out well in advance. The following week sees the now annual Manchester homecoming Castlefield Bowl event, Saturday 13h July featuring Inner City live.
With a new set for 2019.curated by DJ Graeme Park, Executive Producer Peter Hook, and Musical Director Tim Crooks, Haçienda Classical will again include orchestral renditions of much loved classic club records from The Haçienda’s heritage, revisiting some of the tracks that have proved popular with fans as well as bringing new additions and arrangements of seminal tracks to the set.
Over its three years so far, Haçienda Classical concerts have brought together a mixed crowd and lively atmosphere at events which see the set played as a continuous live DJ mix where vocalists, choir, orchestra and guests all combine creating a vibrant, exciting performance.
Graeme Park commented “I can’t believe Haçienda Classical is about to embark on a fourth year of shows. I’m particularly looking forward to the outdoor Forest Live events in Kent and Gloucestershire where the glorious outdoor surroundings promise to compliment our exciting new show. I’ve always loved a trip to the seaside and where better to enjoy some massive tunes than the Scarborough Open Air Theatre? Plus a fourth appearance at the iconic Royal Albert Hall too. There’s a lot to be excited about as we bring back some favourites from previous years and add some big new tunes too.“
