In honour of his memory and to help raise money for his family, friends of the late Kenny Hawkes are to bring back Space, the party Hawkes started seven years ago with Luke Solomon in central London.
Hawkes passed away last June due to liver failure and is survived by his teenage daughter. His Space events were remembered for debuting some of the most innovative DJs and music of its time. It was a place were life long friendships were made.
This Thursday 14th July, close friends of Kenny will try to create those moments again. The event has already confirmed several DJs who will all be donating their time and services for free.
All proceeds will be given to Kenny’s family.
Thursday 14 July 2011
