Featuring a strong line-up of top-tier DJs such as Todd Terry, Graeme Park, Allister Whitehead and Frankie Knuckles, plus a live P.A from Rowetta and more FAC51s New Years Eve event promises to be an unmissable occurrence. It’s the first time FAC51 have run a NYE for some time and the fact that it’s going down in the prestigious Albert Hall only serves to whet the appetite more.
That they’re doing their return in style comes as no surprise and with a tradition for legendary new years eve parties FAC51’s Albert Hall event looks set to carry that tradition on.
Adding to the excitement, this is the first dance event to be staged in the Hall’s new Chapel, now renovated and designed especially for music and dance events.
The full line up sees a trio of US DJ legends perform at the event; Frankie Knuckles, Todd Terry and Marshall Jefferson, who will be joined by FAC51 DJ’s Graeme Park, Tom Wainwright, Allister Whitehead, 808 State DJ’s and more. Happy Monday’s Rowetta will also be performing a live PA which on which Bez will also bring in the New Year in his own inimitable fashion.

Last week Todd Terry and Graeme Park performed for The Hacienda at Red Bull Music Academy’s annual “Revolutions In Sound” at The London Eye. As expected the event was a huge success, selling out long in advance. Highlights from the event can be found at Red Bull’s “Revolutions In Sound” Youtube channel.
