Cheer up. It is going to happen.
It really is a special one! Three years old! The big 3! Oh man – just where does the time go? But Reasons to be Cheerful have every right to celebrate as they’ve brought us some of the top names around including, in 2018 alone, the likes of Moodymann, Hunee, Larry Heard, Floating Points, Ben UFO, Daphni, Jayda G and many more besides. For their third birthday bash they put their heads together to come up with a really big name and – after many years of trying – they’ve finally managed to secure one of their real heroes in the shape of Theo Parrish. Born and raised in Chicago, but now living in Detroit, he is one of the greatest soulful house producers and DJs around and he will be taking you to the moon and back with a six-hour set that is sure to go down in the annals of legendary Newcastle appearances.
