La Discotheque returns to Albert Hall this February
Returning to Manchester after their 2nd birthday tour, La Discotheque brings a stellar line up of disco and house to Albert Hall on Saturday, February 23rd. Headlined by the Founding Father of House, Lil’ Louis, along with sets from Dmitri from Paris, Horse Meat Disco and Luke Solomon.
Known for its huge lineups, La Discotheque brings Lil’ Louis to Albert Hall for the first time in seven years. Widely referred to as the “The Founding Father of House” with his seminal piece of work – French Kiss – released on Pete Tong’s FFRR imprint in 1989, remains one of the most recognisable tracks in House music today.
Joining Lil’ Louis is Dimitri from Paris, who returns to La Discotheque for a second time. Boasting such a prolific discography, the Frenchman is a true champion of the Disco era and a favourite of disco fans worldwide. London favourites Horse Meat Disco also provide support, having gone from strength to strength since they last played at La Discotheque in Manchester. They’ve been flying the flag all over Britain and selling out countless parties across numerous cities. It’s the queer party for everyone: “Homos and heteros, bears, fashionistas, naturists, guerrilla drag queens and ladies who munch”. Now mainstays on the club and festival circuits as DJs, and with tours in Asia and beyond becoming a formality, the Horse Meat revolution is well and truly underway and en route to Albert Hall on February 23rd.

The final announced support slot comes from La Discotheque debutant Luke Solomon.A true linchpin of the underground House music scene, Luke founded the long-running imprint “Classic” together with Derrick Carter back in 1995, produced Horse Meat Disco’s latest album and has been running the A&R for Defected Records for nearly a decade now. Despite operating on the fringes of the underground for so long, Luke has made big strides in recent years, touring extensively and bagging ‘Soldier Of The Scene’ at last year’s DJ Mag Best of British Awards.
Of course with it being La Discotheque, you can expect a load of surprises and VIP extras. We can’t wait to don the glitter once more and get back to Albert Hall. You can get your tickets HERE
