4pm to 3am Saturday August 30th - just over a week to go!

None of these DJ's should need any introduction, but just in case you don't know who we're talking about:

Greg Wilson, who'll be hosting the event, was a major underground figure from back in the day - the first DJ to mix live on UK TV. Remembered for his cutting-edge Electro-Funk nights in the early 80's at Legends and Wigan Pier, his groundbreaking mixes on Piccadilly Radio, and for his pioneering role at The Hacienda way back in '83. Made a hugely successful return to DJing in the past 5 years after a 2 decade hiatus, and now appears at clubs and events throughout the world.

Colin Curtis is one of the most respected UK DJ's of all. He played a key role in the development of not just one, but three major dance movements here in Britain - Northern Soul, Jazz-Funk and House, playing at a whole spectrum of influential venues in the North and Midlands, including Blackpool Mecca, The Ritz, Rafters, Cassinellis, The Powerhouse, Rock City, The Locarno, Berlin, The Playpen and Legends.

Between 1978 and 1986, Mike Shaft's Piccadilly Radio Soul Show, 'Takin' Care Of Business' was something of a Manchester institution. Along with Greg Edwards and Robbie Vincent in London, Mike completed the trio of most influential black music presenters in the UK. Also a major force in clubland, Mike would move on to BBC Radio Manchester, before launching specialist black / dance music station, Sunset, in 1989. All these years on, he can still be heard, in his inimitable style, on Radio Manchester.
