FAC 51 The Haçienda returns to the resurrected Sankeys on Good Friday with a line-up featuring many of the original DJs that shaped the club including headliners Pickering & Park and Greg Wilson, Hewan Clarke and Jon Dasilva.

Graeme Park and Mike Pickering will play both individually and together as they present their finest records of then and now. Hewan Clarke's set of will feature early Eighties cuts whilst original resident Greg Wilson brings his sublime selection of remixes and edits to the event, with both looking to highlight the musical history of the Haçienda in their sets.

Acid house and Balearic supremos, Jon Dasilva and Justin Robertson, who shaped the independent, open minded, soundtrack to the Haçienda and Manchester in the last Eighties and early Nineties with Hot, Most Excellent, Spacefunk and more, also drop by to provide their great tunes selection and upfront choices to the event.

Finishing up the extensive bill, Manchester Underground’s Russ rocks up with his vinyl while Herbie Saccani delivers one of his much praised warm up sets to kickstart what is set to be another great event for FAC 51 in its Manchester hometown.

Tickets available now priced from 10.00 GBP Earlybird via Sankeys, Skiddle, Ticket Arena

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
