CHIBUKU Shake Shake is celebrating its 10th anniversary – and two lucky readers can join the party for free.
The night has become one of the biggest club nights in the country since March 2000, when four students chipped in £40 to put on a party in a room above a pub, little knowing it would turn into the institution it has become.
But what has followed is the stuff of legend, the night having set up camp in Ibiza, London’s Fabric and Creamfields, selling out 3,000 capacity venues in its hometown and even returning to Malawi where the name itself came from.
Nation is the venue for the March 13 party, when techno stars Adam Beyer and Claude Von Stroke rocki the Courtyard.
They appear alongside Dutch wunderkind Joris Voorn, while one of Chibuku’s original residents Dom Chung kicks things off.
In the main room, with Chibuku having grown up on a diet of French house, the 10 year milestone brings together the figureheads from that genre as Club 75, the DJing super-group boasting Justice’s Xavier, DJ Mehdi, Busy P and Cassius, run the joint for a full six hours, while the two men who started it all, Wandy and Luke Carr, round things off.
And the final tour de force comes in the Annexe, where Beastie Boys DJ Mixmaster Mike makes his Liverpool debut, along with Chibuku faves Chase and Status and dubstep dons Skream and Caspa,.
