2 years after the cancellation, we can finally announce this special rescheduled show.

There are very few DJs whose influence in dance music looms as large as the legendary Danny Krivit. We’re delighted to welcome him to Spiritland Royal Festival for a rare and intimate 5 hour DJ set on 30th April.

Growing up in Greenwich Village, Danny was surrounded by music, working at his father’s club ‘The Ninth Circle’, where he met Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Mingus, John Lennon & Yoko Ono amongst others. In 1971, Danny was becoming part of the underground New York scene, club-hopping and meeting some of the greatest DJ names of the era including Nicky Siano, Walter Gibbons, Tee Scott and one formative influence in particular - David Mancuso and The Loft. Via The Loft, The Record Pool and long time friendships with Larry Levan and Francois Kevorkian, Danny has been a defining presence in New York’s nightlife known with an immaculate list of residencies and appearances at clubs including the Roxy, Area, Danceteria, The Ice Palace, The Limelite, Red Zone, Save The Robots, The Tunnel, The World, Shelter, Sound Factory Bar, Twilo, The Warehouse and many, many others - even a guest spot at the legendary Paradise Garage. Since 1996 Danny, Francois K and Joe Claussell have been the guiding forces at the legendary Body and Soul night.

This is a rare chance to hear Danny digging into his 50,000 strong record collection for one unmissable night beneath the disco ball from 9pm to 2am. Only 200 tickets are on sale for this event. Book early to be part of this very special night of music beneath under the disco ball.
