The Gallery Xmas Party With Armin Van Buuren

  • Hoorah... the legendary Xmas Party is here and in true Gallery tradition and style we’ve pulled out all the stops to bring you, our Gallery faithful, one of the biggest and best line-ups witnessed on these shores in 2008. Headlined by the world’s No.1 DJ, Armin van Buuren and Gallery resident supremo (and the newly appointed world no.8 DJ) Markus Schulz... this year’s Gallery Xmas Party is literally bigger than ever before and will undoubtedly be a proper Roadblock with all the trimmings!! Armin van Buuren has had another one of those years in 2008. Clinching the world No.1 position in the DJ Mag poll for a second year running the lovable chap from the Netherlands has toured every known corner of the globe appearing at every leading festival and club worth its salt. Those that can cast their minds back to the hazy days of late April will remember Armin helped us launch The Gallery at its brand new home of Ministry of Sound appearing as our birthday headliner to one of the biggest crowds Gaunt Street has ever witnessed. Also our headline guest at The Gallery arena at this years SW4 festival, Armin has smashed it up wherever and whenever and this exclusive London appearance must rank as a special early Xmas treat for us all!! Markus Schulz has long been a favourite with us here at The Gallery and in May this year we proudly showed him off as our new resident; joining the ranks of Tall Paul, Sister Bliss, Sander Van Doorn, Hernan Cattaneo and many more. Markus has gone onto raise the roof with each and every appearance at The Gallery, and in a recent interview on Kiss 100 Markus proclaimed The Gallery at Ministry of Sound as his favourite club in the entire world! Also a guest at our massive Gallery arena at SW4 this year, Markus will be more than welcome at his first Gallery Xmas party playing a special 3 Hour Set alongside his close friend and mentor Armin van Buuren. With his trademark sound, enthusiasm behind the decks and being back at his favourite night in the world this looks set to be the perfect warm up to Xmas. Rounding off the Box line-up is the two long serving Gallery residents who have continually rocked the main room time after time, Gavyn Mytchel on warm up duties with the closing set provided by The Viceroy. The Bar is an all out Gallery party this week with main man Steve Lee doing what he does best. Steve has continually rocked The Gallery from day one when he was made one of the first residents some 14 years ago. Having forged a reputation as somewhat of a legend with The Gallery faithful down the years, this year has been no exception with Steve taking the Bar by the scruff of the neck and setting the standard for every other DJ to match. As he and us are full of the Xmas cheer Steve will be dropping a very special 3 hour extended set to get us all in the mood!! Joining him will be regular guest and producer Graeme Lloyd who continues his run of good form and Steve Richards on warm up duties. The Baby Box is ho-ho-hosted by Future Friday Feeling while the Subbass DJ Academy confirm the Christmas spirit in the Lounge. Just don’t forget your mistletoe....
