London, United Kingdom
As Homer’s Odyssey is to western literature, The Paradise Garage is at the cornerstone of modern dance music and its culture. Having attained almost mythical status, this ground-breaking club and the man at its musical helm, the legendary Larry Levan have had a profound and lasting effect on the music we listen to and the clubs that we listen to it in.
On the 30th of November, coinciding with World AIDS Day, A Night in Paradise will bring the spirit of The Garage to London for the first time. Making its home in the very place that it famously inspired over twenty-five years ago – The Ministry of Sound. Showcasing Levan's seminal soundtrack, and the music it has since inspired, this event also aims to raise £20,000 to support two of the world’s first and leading HIV charities; New York’s Gay Men’s Health Crisis or GMHC and the UK’s Terrence Higgins Trust, with all profits from the event being split equally between the two organisations.
