[SOLD OUT] Partisan Presents: Shanti Celeste b2b Chekov [all night long]

17th May 2019 @ 10:00 pm - 6:00 am


SOLD OUT – no tickets on the door. LAST ENTRY: 00:30am. Ticket holders are not permitted entry after this.
Shanti Celeste!! At Partisan!!! Plus the long-awaited return of Chekov!!!! 😲 😈

This fundraiser party is only happening because of Shanti and Chekov’s support of Partisan’s work and vision – building a collectively-run hub of culture that raises money to give our space for free to support vital local social justice organisations. Thank you so so much, you massive legends πŸ’–πŸ’–

Shanti Celeste is a globally-celebrated DJ and producer, who cut her teeth in Bristol but has now flown the nest to settle in Berlin. Not only does she run the incredible Peach Discs label – a destination for some her own glistening, dreamy, and pulsating productions – but is a sensational and prolific DJ. Her monthly NTS Radio show is a great place to touch base with Shanti’s sound, rooted in house and techno, but blossoming in corners further afield.

Chekov is a resident at the *incredible* ‘pumping gay dance party’ Love Muscle in Leeds. But Manchester folk might know him better for his hugely distinctive and wondrously technical productions for labels like Manchester’s own Cong Burn, Bristololian UK bass titans Timedance, and Shanti’s very own Peach Discs. Chekov is such a sophisticated and refined DJ, delicately building and releasing tension with mastery. After he smashed it at Partisan NYE 17/18, we cannot wait to have him back!

Shanti & Chekov will be on ALL-NIGHT-LONG, casually moving in and out of playing back to back and solo, going wherever the flow takes them, and wherever our dancefloor energy leads them… so lace up your dancing shoes, put on your party pants, and get ready to dance the night away x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x

+ Microdosing will be running their legendary chill-out room upstairs!! A tailor-made bay of ambience & relaxation for tired legs and active minds to sprawl out together. More info TBA….

Regrettably, Partisan is not yet wheelchair accessible. However, we are working closely with the council and our architect to make this Grade 2 Listed building accessible to all. Further information on their progress can be found on their website, and is updated regularly: www.partisancollective.net/accessibility/

You can contact [email protected] for specific access questions or requests.

Partisan is located across 2 floors of a 3-story building. The basement has 11 steps from street level, without a handrail. The first floor has 22 steps from street level, with a handrail. There are 40 steps between the two floors. All toilets are gender-neutral and are located on both levels of the venue. On the first floor, these are single contained stalls. In the basement, there are stalls and urinals.

Seating is available on each floor at all events. For performances, a seated viewing area will be available.

Assistance dogs are allowed at all times. Other well behaved dogs are usually welcome, with the exception of in performance rooms of loud music events. If you have a dog allergy/phobia let us know – we’ll do what we can.

For ticketed events, paying disabled people are eligible to a free additional ticket for a PA to accompany them.

Partisan aims to be a safer space. As such, harmful and discriminatory behaviour is not tolerated. As a cooperative, Partisan is democratically owned by its members, and is shaped by everybody through what we say and what we do. If you are challenged or feel threatened, speak to someone wearing a Partisan badge; they are there to help.

A quiet room is available on the first floor at this event for those wanting to take a break for a while.
