HAC XXX 1X 
Disorder, Box, Detroit and now XXX. The first Hacienda 30th anniversary party - organised by Peter Hook and taking over the two levels of car park in the basement of the Hacienda apartment block - was up there with the best of them.

There were no half measures: permissions were sought from the management company and residents of an entire apartment block; parking spaces were rented across the road to create the space; council licences were granted; an impressive PA, stage, light show, bar and (a generous supply of) portaloos installed; (Greg) Wilson, Hook, Haslam, DaSilva and Park were booked; and all for 500 invited guests paying GBP 10.00 each to charity.

The Old Order were, of course, famous for such philanthropic displays of largesse.
