Across one weekend in April, the full-on Circo Loco experience is coming to Birmingham. Known across the globe as the hedonistic and no holds barred after hour session held at DC; 10 each Monday, anyone who has been to Circoloco out in Ibiza will know what to expect – smiley faces, knowledgeable crowds and of course the most connoisseur beats. And it’s pretty much been that way since the night first started way back in 1999. As such, three typically off the wall events have been programmed in club spaces old and new across the city, with line-ups jammed packed with on-point talents from the worlds of house and techno.
The first will be April 7th from Midday until 1am and will see the launch of the brand new and hugely impressive Arena. As well as mind melting lights and pyrotechnics, the space will be decked out with heavy sound systems and all the extra promotion you’d expect of the world famous Circoloco brand. The space itself is a collection of Victorian railway arches under the over-reaching curve of The Rainbow’s embrace and somehow mimics the architecture of some ancient Coliseum and will hold up to 5, 000 ravers: in time, it will no doubt become one of the city’s most essential rave spaces. DJs will be ‘Loco favorites Jamie Jones, Kerri Chandler, Matthias Tanzmann, Dyed Soundorom, Dan Ghenacia, Cassy, The Martinez Brothers and Below main man Adam Shelton.
Once that event finishes, it will be to a warehouse at just past midnight where the sensational Hot Natured (aka Jamie Jones and Lee Foss)will take you through to 7am with a back to back set. Label mates Luca C and Ali Love as well as Clockwork and Richy Ahmed will also play, so expect plenty of creamy house sounds right through the night.
To finish off this Spring-time party extravaganza, Below will take the reins in The Courtyard (recently taken back to being a proper courtyard again, complete with natural light and exposed brick work, trees etc) for a day time special. This time the party runs from midday until 3am and will be headlined by one of the biggest teams in the game – namely Visionquest, which comprises Shaun Reeves, Lee Curtiss and Ryan Crosson. Of course, local night Below features too, with resident and founder Adam Shelton also playing, as will his One Records co-chief, Subb-an.
Circo Loco is amongst the most sought after party brands in the world and has multiple residencies around the world at the foremost temples of dance music as well as at leading festivals and conferences on all continents. This, then, is surely one of the most exciting clubbing prospects to have hit Birmingham in years…
