WITH SPECIAL GUESTS DJ FRESH & SLAM DUNK’D
The first time Fatboy Slim played Brixton Academy, he brazenly installed a full size rotating boxing ring for the infamous ‘A Date With Destiny’ night, a historic DJ battle with his Stateside counterpart Armand Van Helden. In every sense, it was an epic event and for Norman Cook, it marked the beginning of a fond relationship with Brixton Academy.
The Academy itself is somewhat the ‘Rave’ icon, the first venue to be granted a 6am license in the UK, crowning it the birth place of legal ‘All Nighter’s’,
This kind of significance is never lost on Fatboy Slim, who returned to Brixton in 2005 with his ‘Palookavision’ tour, this time replacing a boxing ring with a monster 3d Video wall.
Now in 2014 Fatboy’s penchant for delivering the unexpected rages on, be it a secret gig at Glastonbury or giant stadium in Rio, Normans servitude to the spirit of Acid House alongside good ‘new fashioned’ entertainment is in higher demand than ever.
So on 20th December, Fatboy returns to Brixton once again, this time bringing along the talents of DJ Fresh and Slam Dunk’d. Announcing this special London date, this will be a live show that you have to experience for yourself.
