United We Stream is hosting a Hacienda house party this weekend featuring Hacienda all stars such as Todd Terry, Graeme Park, Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), K-Klass and more. Additionally, there will be a live Q&A session with New Order’s Peter Hook. Visit the United We Stream website for the full line up and to view the live performances.
The event will raise money for the Manchester community. The official description of their goals is below
As the city-region, the nation and the world continues to battle against COVID-19, all our night-time venues have closed to help our NHS in the fight to stop the spread.
But with unified support, Greater Manchester is leading the fight back on behalf of all our restaurants, pubs, theatres and venues and will showcase our world class cultural talent with United We Stream.
Every night we will stream live bands, DJ’s, singers and performers in a UK first, to entertain, educate and enrich you in your home. United We Stream GM will be live everyday from 7pm onwards, with a donations page, where you can watch for free. All we ask is that you buy a ‘virtual ticket’ for whatever price you want, to enjoy the channel.
Sorry for the technical difficulties!— Peter Hook (@peterhook) April 11, 2020
