January and February are obviously the worst months. So putting them to bed for another ten months feels like a release. March has arrived. And with it, free-license to start discussing the next big party date in the calendar: Easter. An extended weekend makes for some of the best parties of the year, and few come bigger than this one.
ABODE return to Tobacco Dock on Saturday 20th April for the second year running. Last year’s event saw . Never one to scrimp on their line-ups, this year’s is looking equally as blockbuster.
Having only made his debut at Tobacco Dock last March, we’re thrilled that Erick Morillo is returning to East London’s most celebrated venue. A certified legend in the house game, Morillo proved that he’d lost none of his panache with the most talked about set of the day.
Only a few months later, he went onto to make a rare appearance on Amnesia’s terrace - and his first outing for ABODE. In similar fashion, the US-Colombian star underlined why he is such a respected figure. When looking for a headline act to top the bill in the Great Gallery, it’s a natural progression for ABODE and Morillo to once again unite.
Heading below the surface and into the Car Park, Moonharbour boss Matthias Tanzmann is the second name out of the hat.
The German is in good company, as he’s joined by Better Lost Than Stupid compadre Davide Squillace.
The next confirmed headliners are two siblings who grew-up surrounded by electronic music - so it was pretty inevitable they would end up in the industry themselves one day. They are the Anadon brothers, but you will know them better as the Mambo Brothers - and they’ll be bringing their Balearic beats to Wapping.
Over the years, Tobacco Dock has bore witness to some simply spellbinding Guti live performances, including his ambitious live double-act with fellow virtuoso musician Martin Buttrich in 2018. Yet again we will see him push boundaries - this time with a different partner in crime.
For the first time in the UK, Guti and Cuartero will indulge in one of their DJ/live B2B hybrid sets. Two completely different disciplines coming together is not only . We’re certain that this unique dynamic will be a spectacle not to be missed.
That’s not all of course, as naturally we can rely on ABODE’s seasoned team of residents to bring the fire to the dancefloor.
All-in-all, this event is shaping-up to be ABODE’s biggest at Tobacco Dock to date. Given the size and credibility of the line-up, as well as the party’s unflagging popularity, this is set to be another Easter sell-out. ABODE at Tobacco Dock - the place to be!
4th release tickets are on sale now, but not expected to hang around for long.
