1992 saw a shift and change in the scene as acid house and Madchester sounds gave way to more rave orientated flavours but in many ways as The Hacienda approached its tenth anniversary, the highlight of the clubbing year in the UK, it was somewhat renewed by the attention May’s three day event brought about

Featuring a fashion show by designers including Vivienne Westwood and Jonathan Richmond, live gig by Pet Shop Boys and one of The Hacienda’s best ever nights with Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Graeme and Mike the tenth birthday celebrations provided one of the enduring highlights of the year.

Nevertheless gang problems continued to plaque the club and as Factory Records collapsed later in the year, situations regarding its and the clubs affairs became more frantic again, becoming remisncent of the early years in many ways.

With guest DJs now the norm to attract crowds, The Hacienda increasingly looked to bring in guests DJs with increasingly regular appearances from the United States’ and United Kingdom’s best jocks while a new funk night was attempted on Wednesdays and the club also began to feature memorable showcases for Rob Gretton’s label for emerging Manchester talent, Robs Records.
