Having performed the first run of dates for 2018’s much-praised updated new set, Haçienda Classical with Manchester Camerata, the city’s experimental orchestra, is to bring its brand new soundtrack to Sefton Park, Liverpool on Sunday 22nd July.

The LIMF appearance of Haçienda Classical will feature a third new set prepared by DJ’s Graeme Parkand and Mike Pickering alongside executive producer Peter Hook and musical director Tim Crooks. This version sees many new classic tracks added to the repertoire for the Haçienda Classical players and special guests.

Haçienda Classical, which sees the club’s original DJ partnership, Graeme Park and Mike Pickering reinterpret seminal dance classics with the orchestra and conductor Tim Crooks, has received rave reviews since its first Bridgewater Hall concerts a little over two years ago. It has since performed around 30 concerts playing to audiences totalling well over 200,000.

Celebrating a decade of success since Liverpool being named European Capital of Culture, LIMF is shining a spotlight on the city’s pioneering approach to its ever-evolving music culture with a weekend programme that brings together music that celebrates the past, present and future, spanning eras and genres that co-exist through the connection of music.
LIMF forms part of the Liverpool 2018 programme which is supported by the City Region Combined Authority with £5 million from the Single Investment Fund.
