The Star Festival 2011 presents FAC51 The Hacienda

Namurazosen Atochi, Osaka

MAR 19

The legendary Hacienda returns for one night only. The Hacienda in Manchester was one of the best-known nightclubs in the world in the late 80s to early 90s and it stood at the heart of the acid house scene and the rave culture, or the second summer of love, until its closure in 1997. However, the Hacienda sprit never dies and it has been resurrected in the Fac51 Hacienda tour. DJs and artists who played at the original Hacienda during its glory days have signed up to this tour and celebrate the reunion. The headliners are two-time Grammy award nominee Chicago DJ, Felix Da Housecat, UK’s best selling house duo and the originator of the funky Latin house, Basement Jaxx. Also, Peter Hook from thepost- punk bands Joy Division and New Order returns to Japan with his new band The Light for the first time in the far east. It is going to be a massive night, so be sure to get the ticket in advance and get the venue early to avoid the long lines.

• The Star Festival 2011 presents Fac51 The Hacienda (Techno/House/Electro) • Acts: Peter Hook, Felix Da Housecat, Basement Jaxx, Verbal, Mademoselle Yulia, Altz, Yogurt, Koichi Sato, Damage + more • Open: 7pm • Admission: ¥5,500 (Adv: ¥5,000) • Tel: 06-6212-2264 • www.fac51thehacienda.jp
