Abandon Silence is currently undertaking it's annual Summer hiatus. We will be returning on 5/10/12 with a huge line up that we cannot wait to share with you guys.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their unwavering support over the past 2 years, without your help we would not still be here. We really appreciate it.

A number of big changes will be happening to Abandon Silence over the Summer, though deep down it will still be the same Abandon Silence that we all love. All of the changes taking place have been carefully thought out with you guys always in mind and to ensure that the progression and evolution of Abandon Silence can continue in the same vein - through our philosophy of bringing the world's most exciting and fresh electronic music artists to Liverpool and hosting parties in an excellent spaces with huge soundsystems, all while maintaing affordable entry prices.

Much love, hope to see you at a festival this Summer,

Abandon Silence

Also, later in the Summer, you can catch Abandon Silence DJ's hosting an afternoon on the beach stage at Dimensions Festival. The new festival based at Punto Cristo in Croatia, is a brand new festival put together by the team behind Outlook. We cannot wait and are over the moon to be associated with such an amazing brand. Get tickets for Dimensions Festival here...

Hopefully catch some of you guys there!..

Abandon Silence Second Birthday

After the Dimensions Festival launch at Easter time, we decided to take a brief hiatus to collect ourselves before our Second Birthday party on 3rd June. From the end of January up until Easter we had worked our way through fortnightly shows, and the toll was quite a lot, on both myself and the crowd. The break gave us all time to recuperate and build towards our birthday, with a very special headliner who I have genuinely been trying to book for about 18 months. Finally, I got my man, and Julio Bashmore came to play, supported by Midland, Mele and James Rand,

The night was ridiculous, straight from doors until close there was a full room bouncing along to the sounds. Mele and James Rand's set was heavy and really got the crowd moving, Midland's was one of the best sets we have seen all year, he will definitely be back.

Headliner Julio Bashmore lead the crowd on a journey through house, with particular room-shakers coming from his recent single 'Au Seve' and FCL's classic 'Let Go'. An extortionate amount of rum was drank, so thankfully our photographer Matthew Ball took these shots of the night. The rest can be found here ... 

Dimensions Festival Launch Party

So, to recap. Since the party we hosted with George Fitzgerald, a lot of things have happened...

Firstly, in April, we hosted a Dimensions Festival launch party featuring a world's first combination as Space Dimension Controller and Blawan went b2b for 5 hours... The vibe downstairs in The Shipping Forecast was electric, ridiculous tune selection. Highlight of the night goes to Blawan for the track above.

Here is a selection of photographs from the night, courtesy of our ever-reliant photographer Matthew Ball...

We apologise for the major delays in any posting... In all honesty I got a new computer and had my old gmail password lost when i switched as it's different from everything else.

Just got given a new password, so we're back online. Many thanks, a big review post of the past 4 months activity coming next
