The Garden Party at The Faversham have long been pinnacle events on the Leeds clubbing calendar, taking place on three bank holiday occasions each year. In the past the likes of The Martinez Brothers, Zip, Matthias Tanzmann, Todd Terje, Eats Everything, Lindstrøm and Midland have all played inside the sun-flooded marquee that is constructed in jest of these special events. On 24th August, the third and final edition of The Garden Party series for 2014 will be bringing out the masses with shorts, shades and great vibes guaranteed.
As always the line-up for the final garden party of the year is a special one, headlined by UK house mainstay Huxley. As a household name in house music for the best part of the last 5 years, Huxley has released some of the most played tracks in clubs and elsewhere including the huge ‘Box Clever’ on 2020 Vision and ‘Shower Scene’ on Act Natural. As a regular on Rinse FM and at many nights around Leeds, his crowd-pleasing blend of house and garage will light up the Faversham’s dance floor with ease.
Second on the line-up is Fav favourite Mano Le Tough. Having played at the club a handful of times for The Garden Party and Mono_Cult, the Irishman is firmly skilled in getting a Leeds crowd moving with his melodic and hypnotic style of house music.
Next up is Newcastle born Richy Ahmed. Richy has been making huge waves in the scene and has thus been snapped up by Jamie Jones’ Hot Natured crew, making him a regular at their Wednesday knees up at DC-10 in Ibiza. Richy has a recognisable yet unique sound that blends disco grooves with punchy house beats. His track ‘The Drums’ has been a hot pick for many DJs recently and to hear it on The Faversham’s Funktion One sound system will be very special. Ryan Elliott is the fourth and arguably most exciting addition to the line up for part three of The Garden Party. Ryan is a regular at Panorama Bar in Berlin and has thrown down two awesome sets at Teknicolor this year at Mint Club. As a DJ Ryan has earned a hefty reputation, picking cutting edge techno sounds and combining them effortlessly with classic house cuts.
Finally Garden Party residents PBR Streetgang will be rounding off the classy line up, who never fail to impress.
As always there will be further duties from residents People Get Real, Brad Mercer, Matt Long, and Christian Maiden, with E.A.R Recordings and Butter Side Up hosting The Garden and Grey Lounge.
