Fergie (3 Hour Set)
Luke Spencer & MATT NASH
Following up a rather massive Garuda launch in April which saw over 1300 clubbers witness the return of proper trance to Sankeys, we’re back this August for no doubt another roadblocked night with an equally uncompromising line-up time featuring Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery, and Fergie.
Our special guest headliners are global dance superstars Above & Beyond. Currently ranked at no.4 in the world in the definitive DJ Mag Poll and riding high after their recent critically acclaimed Oceanlab and Anjunadeep albums, the unstoppable global domination of this London-based band has reached new heights this year. ??They’ll be celebrating their first Manchester appearance in years with an extended three-hour set where they’ll showcasing the full range of their sound, from the electro-tinged progressive beats of Anjunadeep to the classy uplifting sounds of Anjunabeats.
Also in Sankeys will be Garuda main man and world no. 23 DJ Gareth Emery. With massive records like ‘Exposure’ and the launch of the Garuda brand, it’s been a pretty good year so far this relentlessly innovating 28 year-old with Emery stock at an all-time high. Playing only his second ever three-hour set in the UK, he’ll be making a much-demanded return to Sankeys, where he’ll no doubt do serious damage again with his truly individual blend of sublime trance and progressive.
Wrong:Format return to host Room 2, with one very exciting addition: FERGIE. Now firmly established as one of the finest purveyors of techno on the planet, he’ll be ripping up Spektrum with an exclusive three-hour techno set. If you haven’t heard him on the decks for a while, do not miss this. Joining him in Spektrum will be our Wrong Format ressies Luke Spencer and Matt Nash who are all about tech and progressive house. After ripping Spektrum up in April, we’re rather excited to have the boys back under the LED ceiling and behind the Funktion Ones.
