To celebrate 10 years of his residency at Space in 2011, Carl Cox played a 10-hour non-stop set in the Discoteca. Last year, to commemorate 12 years, the night ran for 12 dates. This year, however, for no particular reason — other than to beat all that's come before — he's playing a 10-hour set to open the season AND the night is running not for 13 nights to celebrate the number of years Revolution has now run — that'd be far too easy — he's added not one, but two additional nights to take the party toll to 14!
Living up to the revolution theme, Carl's constantly pushing things forward. And not just by challenging his own endurance in a bid to give people more of what they, quite simply, cannot get enough of — even after all these days. We don't dare to imagine what he's planning for his 15th summer!
No, it's Carl's refusal to be left behind that's kept him a leader of the pack. Remaining on the cutting-edge of house and techno with booking such as Dyed Soundorom, Mano Le Tough and Catz 'N Dogz, there's also the appearance of acts like Danny Tenaglia, Todd Terry and an Ibiza exclusive from Laurent Garnier to keep dance heritage intact.
Listings for the first four dates can be read below, while we look forward to names like Julio Bashmore, Green Velvet, MK and Heidi later on in the season.
