Renaissance 20th Anniversary show with Freeze Liverpool

Big event up in Liverpool, UK. Amazing lineup, truly unique venue.


By Spotlight

It has played host to royalty, concert pianists, world class dancers and even the odd Beatle or two, now one of Liverpool’s architectural gems is to host part of the 20 year celebrations for one of the world’s most iconic music brands – Renaissance.

A pioneering music brand, which helped launch the careers of many a world class DJ, Renaissance kicked off its 20-year celebrations in Birmingham and Leeds with Sasha at the helm. Now, thanks to the work of Liverpool promoters, Freeze, the next instalment of the celebration will be held in St George’s Hall in September.

Taking place on Saturday, September 15th, the event will see the Grade I listed building reverberate to the sounds of some of Renaissance’s biggest names – Hernan Cattaneo, Henry Saiz, Danny Howells, Ghosting Season and Jemmy, plus a very special guest DJ still to be announced.

One of the figureheads of the modern Renaissance sound, Argentinean DJ Hernan Cattaneo headlines the event alongside tech-house legend, Danny Howells. The September gig marks a return to Liverpool for Cattaneo and Howells, who both delivered awe-inspiring sets at Freeze’s last event – in Liverpool Cathedral last year.

Of course, Howells and Cattaneo aren’t the only DJs who will be on the decks in the latest Liverpool landmark to get the Freeze treatment.

Rising star on the melodic house and techno scene, Henry Saiz will also be making his return to Liverpool. Henry’s Balance 19 Compilation won him Best Compilation at the prestigious Spanish Dj Mag awards earlier this year, in which he also picked up awards for Best Label for his Natura Sonoris imprint and Best Live Act.

Ghosting Season, an exciting new band signed to Sasha’s Last Night on Earth label, and described by Mixmag as the ones to watch for 2012, will be performing a live set on the night. Completing the list will be home-grown star Jemmy, whose EP Quarry Bank Rainbow will be released on a major label this summer.

One of the world’s finest neo-classical buildings, St George’s Hall was originally built as a venue for music festivals in the 1850s. A majestic setting for Renaissance’s 20 year celebrations, the hall, which Charles Dickens is said to have dubbed: ‘The most perfect hall in the world’, is part of Liverpool’s World Heritage site.

Being held in a venue as grand and jaw-droppingly beautiful as St George’s Hall, the September 15 event is sure to go down in Liverpool clubbing history as a night of monumental proportions.

This is the first event that Freeze have put on in the city following their hugely successful night in Liverpool Cathedral in April 2011. Over a year since it happened, Freeze’s cathedral event is still talked about by Liverpool clubbers and the upcoming Renaissance night is sure to be another night to go down in clubbing history.

Following the St George’s Hall event, an exclusive after-party is being held in a secret venue, for which just 500 tickets are available. Continuing Freeze’s emotional commitment to Breast Cancer awareness, a percentage of all ticket sales will be donated to the cause.
