He is a truly sensational artist and we look forward to what he will bring to our most acclaimed venues over the next three years”.
Calvin Harris commented, “Hakkasan Group’s heritage in part goes right back to the ’90s golden era of dance music and I am excited to be able to play a part in this next chapter of its story. Its venues are some of the best in the world for dance music and the opportunity to be part of the wider group as it develops into other markets and sectors is a really exciting prospect for me as an artist. We have some great ideas up our sleeves.”
