Graeme Park has been a huge figure involved with dance and club culture within the UK. Initially starting out by working in his local Nottingham record store called Selectadisc in the early 80’s when genres such as House started to appear.
When the record store owner opened up his own nightclub, Graeme was the natural choice to select the discs. This was an incredible opportunity for him to showcase his own style and begin to put people onto House in the UK.
With him starting to build up a reputation as one of the best House music DJ’s it wasn’t too long before Manchester’s legendary Hacienda came calling and he started to cover the slot of Mike Pickering who was away on holiday. This would begin a wonderful relationship with the club where he ended up enjoying a 9-year residency.
Known to many as “Parky”, his reputation had soared as one of the best DJ’s in emerging dance scenes. He was a pioneer and the first British DJ to touch the shores of Australia, America, South America and more. There have been many chapters within Graeme’s career each as interesting as the last.
Always keen to add more diversity to his live show, touring all kinds of venues in all kinds of places. More recently he has performed with other legendary DJ’s from the Hacienda such as Todd Terry and David Morales for Fac51 club nights, playing the best tunes new and old.
He has also been a part of the hugely successful Hacienda Classical shows which have been touring around the UK since 2016. Featuring complete re-workings of those classic club tunes that Graeme helped to make so popular in the UK in the first place. He’s even been lending his vocals to some of the shows too.
Graeme is making his way to Highest Point this year and it’s a great time to see such an influential legend appear. Wherever there’s good House music you can find Graeme Park. He’ll be performing on Saturday 4th September.
