Hacienda - Acid House Legend 101

The Hacienda is one of Britain's most legendary music venues. Made famous in Manchester by Tony Wilson the venue introduced the likes of the Sex Pistols, Madonna and later Joy Division, New Order, Stone Roses and more. The long running disagreement on whether House music was launched in Manchester or in London wont be covered here. What is written in concrete is the fact that both Hacienda and Soundshaft (home to Future, Spectrum, Land of Oz) held the longest and most established club-nights in all the land. When the time comes when only our dust remains historians will speak of Hacienda and Manchester's thriving Acid House scene.
