On Saturday 31st July, Kable Club Manchester alongside Warehouse Project boss Sacha Lord, DJ Paulette, and renowned Manchester brand Kaluki will host an attempt at breaking the world record of the highest number of DJs playing back-to-back in one relay session.
The current record stands at 147 DJs playing back-to-back at Stoney Roads in Sydney, Australia. However, Manchester is a city steeped in electronic music history, home to legendary venues such as The Hacienda, The Boardwalk, Sankeys Soap, and current iconic venues The Warehouse Project, Albert Hall, Gorilla, and Joshua Brooks. Naturally, Mancunians will want to wrestle the crown back from the Aussies.
2019 Machester attempt
Manchester almost wrestled the crown from the Aussies back in 2019 at Joshua Brooks with 182 DJs taking part but due to a technicality, the attempt was struck off and the crown remained firmly with Stoney Roads.
The record attempt of over 200 DJs is lead by Daniel Williams, a renowned Manchester DJ/producer and Promoter who is organising this challenge to raise awareness and funds for MIND, a Greater Manchester charity. When talking about the challenge, Daniel said:
“I just felt that it was right that the re-attempt of this world record should be in Manchester again, we came so close last time, and I have every confidence we can make it to 200 DJs this time around! Having seen the work first hand of MIND, it just felt like such a perfect opportunity for the cities electronic music community to help raise awareness and vital funds for a very worthy charity amidst a very challenging time for the entire nation”.
The doors open at 12 pm and you can expect a lot of surprise guests, although the Daniel and Kable Club are keeping quiet about the full line up on the day, there will be a pop-up record shop, discounted food plus Manchester’s DJ Paulette and Warehouse Project boss Sacha Lord both coming down to spin a tune.
Once the record is complete at midnight, the party will continue where a secret international headline DJ will close out the night. Tickets will not be required for the world record attempt event.
