First up, a little history lesson… The first ever Hospitality event took place at Herbal way back in 2001. After five years of monthly shindigs at the East end sweatbox, Hospitality took the giant leap to super club Heaven for quarterly parties, which instantly became the stuff of legend. With Hospital Records artists like High Contrast, London Elektricity, Danny Byrd and Cyantific the stars of the show, and playing host to special guests such as Andy C, Fabio & Grooverider, DJ Marky, Noisia, Teebee and Calyx, Hospitality @ Heaven revolutionised and revived drum & bass in the capital. Matter at the O2 Arena became our new home in 2008 and after nine completely sold out parties at the Greenwich institution it was time to move on again! 2010 marked the beginning of a new era for the London event, as Hospitality took over the O2 Academy in Brixton, where we still to this day showcase spectacular line ups to the masses.
We are celebrating Hospital Records 18th birthday next year, so in honour of this milestone we are taking an emotional trip down memory lane by revisiting iconic venues across London that have helped to make Hospitality events what they are today.
February 7th we head up to Building Six at the O2 in North Greenwich. Memories of hosting parties at the O2 stretch back to 2008, when we began our 2-year residency at superclub Matter, where each & every show was a sold-out, unmissable experience. Fast forward to today & we are returning to the O2 to brand new venue Building Six, where we will be bringing a world class lineup, soundsystem and atmosphere… as standard.
Then on May 4th we will be stepping even further back into the history books for a one-off spectacular at our beloved Heaven – a maze of dancefloors, bars and sound systems located under the arches of Charing Cross station in the heart of central London, a nightclub engraved on the heart of British rave culture. Those who remember the original Hospitality events at Heaven will know these were really special occasions, and we aim to recapture that vibe in 2014 with the best artists and the friendliest crowd. And for those who never made it to Heaven all those years ago, this is your chance to experience an integral piece of Hospitality history.
Both events promise to be something to saviour, completely unique whilst including everything you love about Hospitality. For this reason we have come up with a ticket that gets you into both, click combo ticket, and we will see you there!
