DJ GRAEME PARK

Born in Aberdeen in 1963, Graeme is British house music DJ and is widely credited as one of the original founders of the UK's rave/club scene, notably as a leading figure of The Haçienda club in Manchester, England.

Graeme started out working in the Nottingham record shop, Select-a-Disc Records, in the early 1980’s. He began DJing at The Garage Club in Nottingham and The Leadmill in Sheffield, among others, before being invited to join Mike Pickering (of M-People fame) at the decks of the renowned The Haçienda club in 1987, where he played until the venue closed in June 1997.

Since 2016, Graeme and Mike Pickering have teamed up with Manchester Camerata Orchestra to form Haçienda Classical - old school house, club and rave anthems performed with a 70-piece orchestra and choir. Although the collaboration was initially planned as a one-off, Haçienda Classical will enter its fifth year in 2020 due to overwhelming demand.

Graeme continues to DJ at venues all over the world, including The Piece Hall.
