Freeze & Cream takeover
The Asylum In Newsham Park, Liverpool
Saturday 4th April 2015 Bank Holiday Weekend
16 Hours – 2 Venues – 1 Ticket

Liverpool promoters Freeze and Cream have launched a new joint project – taking over The Asylum in Newsham Park, Liverpool. This new collaboration sees Freeze and Cream’s strengths combined to deliver a series of events creating a brand new musical direction, set in a stunning location and bringing together an array of world-class electronic artists across the techno, house and electronic music spectrum.  The inaugural event takes place on Saturday 4th April Bank Holiday at the old Newsham Park Hospital, an abandoned site in Liverpool which radiates with gothic atmosphere. Headlining this unique event is Music On techno titan and Ibiza hero Marco Carola, who leads the charge for an epic weekend spanning 16 hours across two shows, all with one ticket.

For part one of the opening show, which kicks off at 1pm, The Asylum becomes the backdrop to a mini festival centred on the site’s open air main courtyard, then the party continues at Nation in Liverpool city centre later that night.

Founded as an orphanage in 1874, The Asylum was later converted for use as a hospital specialising in psychiatric illness, and many of the wards remain untouched since its closure in the 1990s. It looms forebodingly over Newsham Park and contains a labyrinth of dark corridors, dormitories and possibly haunted wards.

Headliner Marco Carola is widely regarded as one of techno music’s true pioneers and ambassadors, from his continuing stellar residency in Ibiza each summer to his shows across the world. His Music On parties and record label have become synonymous with cutting-edge music, delivered by a truly global star who remains an icon of the thriving underground scene. Marco is a more than fitting artist for the first Asylum show, with more acts soon to be revealed.
