The Haçienda returns for live streamed events over May bank holiday weekend

In addition to Haçienda Classical and Orbital, DJs include Graeme Park, Jon Dasilva, DJ Paulette, Justin Robertson and Peter Hook

FAC 51 The Haçienda is to hold another of its acclaimed Haçienda House Parties this coming May Bank Holiday – but this time round, it’s a little bit different.

On Friday 28th and Sunday 30th May, FAC51 sees its first audience facing events in well over a year as Haçienda Classical with Graeme Park and Manchester Camerata plays its first concert in 18 months and UK techno legends Orbital headline at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester.

The House Party events proved to be one of highlights of the last year lifting people’s spirits as well as amassing huge audiences globally and through the donations of viewers raising hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity.

In addition to Haçienda Classical and Orbital, DJ’s playing across both nights include Graeme Park, Jon Dasilva, DJ Paulette, Justin Robertson and Peter Hook with A Guy Called Gerald live alongside Orbital on the second night.

With a limited socially distanced audience of only a few hundred able to attend each night, The Haçienda House Party IV provides a one off opportunity for attendees to catch Haçienda Classical and Orbital in a very distinct, close up, intimate environment.

These Victoria Warehouse parties are the first time a Haçienda House Party has come from a live event, and with restrictions easing allowing us all to come together once again, this the first of a series of planned events and Haçienda Classical concerts for FAC51 to the end of the year.

With all new stage, lighting and visuals plans being prepared for the broadcast which is produced by Manchester’s Surdevan Creative, The Haçienda House Party IV is set to be a very special pair of nights as The Haçienda’s first live concerts and events of this year return.

“To celebrate the lifting of restrictions, we are holding our fourth Hacienda House Party charity streaming event,” said Peter Hook.

“The others were ecstatically received, raising spirits and a great deal of money for charities.

“With us coming live from Victoria Warehouse this time with Hacienda Classical and Orbital and the support of DCMS and Art Council England, I’m sure this will be the best one yet.

“Tony and Rob would very proud.”

“I can’t wait to perform again with the magnificent Manchester Camerata and everyone else involved with Haçienda Classical at Victoria Warehouse,” said Graeme Park.

“It’s been too long!

“I’m particularly looking forward to making actual eye contact from the stage and DJ booth as we all come together to entertain a real, live audience.” 

Both events are to be broadcast free to air at and YouTube and charity donations are encouraged which will benefit The Christie charity and Save the Children directly. Tickets for each of the two events go on sale 10am Friday 14th May here – /
