To celebrate Shindig opening the doors on Friday 27th May 2016, we have created a special new slot for the Pub. Each year we will be inviting a different icon of music to come along and play a very special extended 4 hour set. A chance for them to play the tracks that have influenced their careers and personal tastes over the last couple of decades and get the party started in true Shindig style. Opening the 2016 Weekender and holding the inaugural slot, we have somebody very special for you all. The swaggering original moody DJ. The pop-star producer. Bastion of the underground. One-time (ahem) Balearic figure-head. Electronic experimentalist. Fearless explorer of the minimal techno sound. Arch grumbler and proud Londoner. Honorary Yorkshireman. All these notions have been bandied about by punters and critics alike in a bid to pin down his role in music, yet none of them quite fit the bill. In the dull as ditch-water world of dance music, he comes across as a refreshing and involving character. This has always been reflected in his musical output since those formative days remixing Primal Scream’s rocky original into the pivotal Loaded.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Party People of Shindig….we are over the moon to announce that our first Headliner is none other than Andrew Weatherall.
