For anyone who has been clubbing in Leeds over the past decade, the name Asylum will most likely conjure up some memorable parties including being one of the first brands to bring the infamous Circoloco to the UK with people from all over Europe flying into Leeds to see DC10 regulars within the four walls of Mint Club.
Teaming up with another stalwart of the Leeds scene, Technique, Aslum has also brought another hugely important piece of clubbing legacy to Leeds with The Technique & Asylum Garden Party (now The Garden Party). Held at The Faversham, the legendary terrace party has seen the likes of Magda, Dyed Soundorom, Dixon, Chez Damier, Jamie Jones and more behind the decks. But it will be the Mint Warehouse that sees 'The End' for Asylum, as founder and promoter Tom says; “the Mint club is where our heart lies so, it only seems fitting to go out with a bang at one of their venues”.
The lineup boasts some of the brand's favourite past guests and friends including Kerri Chandler, Maurice Fulton, Crazy P, Maxi Soundsystem, Acid Mondays and more.
