January may not be the month most typically associated with partying, but at Sankeys the rave beast never sleeps.

And the third full weekend in January sees some of the world's biggest names step up to the world's best club, with Laidback Luke and Kerri Chandler leading the onslaught.

Friday 20th: Laidback Luke

Dutch Destroyer Laidback Luke heads up Friday’s bill. The man could play Sankeys every single week and he would still sell out such is his unilateral appeal and love in Manchester. His speaker shredding riffs continue to dominate dance floors across the globe, so it’ll be no surprise to see that his name on a flyer will cut short any hedonistic hibernation which may still be attempting to continue at this point. Throw in support from Oliver Twist and local hero Jason Herd and it’s a winning formula guaranteed to make you put the detox smoothie down and get your glad rags on.

Saturday 21st: Kerri Chandler

If your resolve still needs to be tested come Sunday, step forward Kerri Chandler. One of the icons of house music, Kerri has been bringing that swinging funk on each and every groove since the early nineties, damn near twenty years of boogie inducing funk and rip-roaring razor grooves. His ‘Bar-A-thym’ cut from 2005 was one of the finest cuts so far this century, and he represents house music in its rawest and most soulful fashion. Oh, and he’s playing all night long on Saturday.
