A little round up of what we’ve achieved since we first High Fived!..
When we held the first High Five party back in October 2010 it was only meant to be to be a one off event, I mean you could only expect to put on a party with such a big line up once. And so we partied like that. To be honest with you as I dragged myself home on the Tuesday morning (the party had started on Sunday afternoon) I wasn’t thinking of the next High Five but by the end of that week following the feedback we’d received and more importantly seeing how much we had raised for Macmillan Cancer Support I knew we must do it again.
Now with three parties under our belt and a lot of good times I pleased to say that in total we have raised a total £4,800 for charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, The Meningitis Trust, The Sadie Rose Clifford Appeal and Parkinson’s UK.
Each party has had its own little twist making that extra bit special whilst maintaining the concept of having a shit hot line up and supporting a great cause, we’ve been lucky enough to have the following DJ at High Five:
Audiojack, Buckley, PBR Streetgang, Gavin Herily, Dave Beer, Tristan Da Cunha, Frenchy, Krysko, Greg Lord, Death on the Balcony, Ryan Shaw, Jacob Kelly, Matt Playford, Rob James, James Barnsley, Jon Woodall, Si Morrell and many more, over 50 DJs have graced the decks in just three parties!
We continue into 2012 with two more parties in planning, this time away from our original home The Loft to add something new to the High Five concept but we will still be keeping it good old solid house music all night long!
