CLUB
Chibuku X ENRG: 20th Anniversary 
16/21/21- Blackstone Street Warehouse

There ain’t no party like a CHIBUKU party. And there ain’t no Chibuku party like a birthday party. The legendary Liverpool club knows how to celebrate in style and will be marking its 20th anniversary with a night of explosive dance music at Blackstone Street Warehouse this Saturday.

The immense line-up, headlined by London legends DISCLOSURE, will be a celebration of Chibuku’s heroic past, which has been all about creating the future of dance music. From humble beginnings in a bursting too-small room above a pub, to the Lemon Lounge on Berry Street, through to its spiritual home at the Arts Club, and now to the immense Blackstone Street Warehouse, Chibuku have been sound tracking late night parties in Liverpool for the last 20 years.

This year’s birthday celebration will see DISCLOSURE play their biggest show in Liverpool to date. The garage house duo and brothers, Howard and Guy Lawrence, boast three Grammy nominations for Best Dance/Electronic Album, including for their most recent 2020 release Energy; an almost elegiac offering for a period of empty dance floors. However, this Saturday will see the album come alive in front of a pulsating Liverpool crowd.

Chibuku’s party guests also include poetic house master DJ FOLAMOUR, DJ SEINFELD, a b2b with INDIA JORDAN and DANCE SYSTEM, BKLAVA, and Chibuku resident DOM CHUNG.

With a demonstrated ability for prophetic musical selections, Chibuku have consistently operated at the frontier of dance music, anticipating emerging DJs and solidifying the careers of rising stars. The club has been instrumental in cultivating Liverpool’s existence as a premier location for electronic and dance music. Always operating at the intersection between familiarity and experimentation, Chibuku have consistently championed diverse, brave and eclectic line-ups. It’s set to be one hell of a birthday party.
