Circus 10th Anniversary Announced

Circus X ft Yousef, Sasha, Troxler, Maceo, Squillace, Boardman, Lewis.

By Spotlight

When Yousef first conceived the idea of Circus, he wanted to promote a party in his hometown of Liverpool. That very first night, with Yousef, MYNC Project and Alex Wolfenden starring, was the inaugural bass-reverberating session which has evolved into one of the best house and techno parties on the planet. And in September Circus celebrates its momentous tenth anniversary with the stunning  cast of Sasha, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, Davide Squillace Lewis Boardman and Scott Lewis and, of course, Yousef himself.

Circus is one of the UK’s most iconic events, a party which has enhanced the city’s reputation as an epicentre for electronic music culture. It’s during this decade that Circus has fervently grown, its revered status augmented by the quality of its bookings and the loyalty of its crowd. It’s also a club whose founding ethos remains the same to this day; seriously good fun.

Yousef has enjoyed a meteoric rise during his club’s exponential growth. Whilst it’s rare for a DJ to promote his own night, it’s even rarer to find such a successful one which is testament to years of hard work and dedication from him and the team behind Circus. Touring the world many times over, playing in some of the most famed venues out there, has helped distilled Yousef’s vision for Circus into what it is today.

Yousef says that, “I’m proud and amazed we have made it to ten years. It’s insane to even contemplate a fully independent club night lasting the course of the turbulent UK club scene since we opened, but we have done just that, and we have done it in style. From a home for me to play in Liverpool to being part of UK’s clubbing history means a great deal. Historically it’s been a ride, with UK debuts for (then unknown DJs) including Loco Dice and Davide Squillace, and even bringing MTV to Liverpool for the first time. Warm up slots for new guys Jamie Jones and Seth Troxler, breaking our mould with Laurent Garnier to booking new names like Luciano for the club seven years ago all are amazing memories. Then there’s winning UK Club of the Year and hosting two Radio 1 Essential Mixes at The Masque, one being the 500th Essential Mix party. It has been a real challenge to keep it going but a real pleasure to see the faces and the enthusiasm of our loyal crowd, and we thank them profusely for their ongoing support. My biggest thanks though go to those I work with, especially Rich, Lewis and Sean, who have all helped make Circus what it is. It’s a team effort, pure and simple. It’s going to feel very emotional playing the tenth anniversary, and I can’t wait.”
