On Saturday night at Alfresco, we have none other than Future Disco hosting a stage until the early hours! Future Disco are a collective responsible for producing unmissable compilation series and global parties. Having compiled over 20 compilation albums including the coveted Future Disco series and it’s various spin off’s, one thing is for sure, they certainly know how to craft a sound that people enjoy. The love for discovering and curating new music is first and foremost nurtured as DJs. Having played all over the world and held residencies at Space Ibiza, the likes of Fabric or Ministry Of Sound in London as well as the many clubs that have now disappeared into the clubland history books, Future Disco DJs are well versed in delivering for the many rooms and stages on offer across the globe.
Headlining the stage will be Hammer from the world renowned Feel My Bicep crew and Andy Butler from Hercules & Love Affair.
Hammer is Belfast born, London based Rory Hamilton. Running club nights in Glasgow from the age of 20 was followed by co-piloting the Feel My Bicep blog with best mates Matt and Andy, Djing as far and wide as Shanghai under the FMB brand. Sub Club is now his spiritual home, promoting the ever growing Thunder Disco parties, introducing the likes of previous Alfresco headliners Paranoid London to Glasgow, and playing the renowned Subculture. More recently he’s been playing at AVA Festival, Boiler Room, Love International, Electric Elephant, Farr Festival and Secret Garden Party, with upcoming shows that include Sub Club Sound System, The Warehouse Project and ADE.

Andy Butler is the driving force behind retro-futurist kingpins Hercules & Love Affair but also a DJ of the first order. His devotion to dance music always ran parallel to Andy’s fascination with the freedom offered by disco’s hedonism. From his teenage years, DJing at underground leather nights in his native Denver, to his escape to New York, home to the original wild gay nightworld that gave birth to rave culture, to inventing Hercules & Love Affair as an outlet for his songs, music was always at the heart of it.
