Techno Pioneers are added to Hacienda Classical

It is announced today that one of the UK's most important, pioneering and influential electronic groups will be taking to the stage in the Main Proms Arena on Thursday August 3 ahead of headline act Haçienda Classical.


808 State secured commercial success back in 1989 when the then Radio 1 DJ Gary Davis picked up their song Pacific State.


They then went on to enjoy album and single success in the UK and overseas with hits such as The Only Rhyme that BitesCubic/Olympic and One in Ten.

Speaking about adding them to the bill, Lytham Festival director Peter Taylor said: “Having Haçienda Classical headline a night at Lytham Festival is already a fantastic coup for us. To now be adding 808 State to the bill that night is pretty special.


“This will be a night like no other for Lytham Festival. Everyone talks about how fantastic it was when we brought Faithless here in 2015. That was an incredible night.


“However, to have 808 State and Hacienda Classical on the same bill is going to be mind-blowing. Thursday August 3 will be a memorable night.”
