Fitting perfectly into our theme of Revolution, legendary DJ and former Hacienda resident Greg Wilson will be joining us as part of his Credit 2 The Edit v.3 album tour. Not only is he himself a revolutionary DJ but he will be performing with his trusty Revox B77 reel-to-reel tape machine adding a new dimension to our revolving theme.

Greg has had many accolades throughout his career including being the first DJ to mix live on British TV, putting together the first UK radio mixes of their type for Piccadilly 261 in Manchester and showing a certain Norman Cook (later Fatboy Slim) how to scratch. He was nominated by DJ magazine for outstanding contribution to music, and also named amongst their top twenty remixers of all-time, Greg’s recent remix credits have included Grace Jones, The XX, Groove Armada, Bryan Ferry, Steve Mason, Joan As Police Woman and Simian Mobile Disco, whilst he’s edited tracks by A Guy Called Gerald, Talking Heads, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, Electronic, Imagination and Missy Elliot.

Greg’s reputation was further enhanced when his Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 became something of an instant classic, receiving almost universal acclaim and was selected as one of 10 classics that spanned the show’s near 17 year history.

Expect a heady mix of disco, house, funk and soul with familiar re-edits of your favourite tunes, performed live in a way that only Greg Wilson can.

With live mixed and recorded visuals from Adam Seaman of As Described

The Festival bar will be open and there will be food vendors on site for the evening.
