On Friday August 4 DJ Rusty Egan will present Welcome to the Dancefloor, which will follow THE party night of the year when Lytham Festival presents 80s V 90s, this year featuring performances from The Human League, Midge Ure, Dodgy and many more.
Speaking about the Aftershow parties Rusty said: “I can’t wait to bring these two nights of great music to Lytham Festival for the Official Aftershow Party for the first time. Looking forward to Welcoming you to the Dancefloor.”
Rusty Egan is one of the most influential DJ’s of modern times and is often cited as the pioneer of electronic dance music in the UK.
A passionate musician who made his name in the late 1970’s as a drummer for the British new-wave band The Rich Kids with Glen Matlock formerly of the Sex Pistols and Midge Ure on lead guitar and vocals. Rusty enjoyed considerable success with Midge in Visage, fronted by Steve Strange, including the worldwide hit Fade to Grey.
Rusty came to prominence as a DJ at the Blitz Club (1979-1980), where he introduced German Electronica to the British scene, and as a musical innovator he sought fresh influences in Paris, Berlin, Düsseldorf and New York. His youthful partnership with Steve Strange as host and greeter promoted The Blitz to one of London’s most influential clubs which transformed British youth culture.
In 1981 they opened “Club For Heroes” and from 1982-4 they hosted an 1,800 capacity Camden Palace (now Koko) which attracted international media. Rusty hosted live performances from Grace Jones, The Eurythmics, Kraftwerk, Wham!, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and an unknown Madonna making her first London debut in 1983.
He has recently released Rusty Egan Presents… Welcome To The Dancefloor, the long awaited album featuring Peter Hook, Tony Hadley and Midge Ure to name just a few. Rusty’s set of dance, soul, 80’s, 90’s Funk and House music will fill the dancefloor.
The Aftershow Parties will be held from 10.30pm – 1am. Please note – Over 18’s Only
