LUSH! A Decade of Dance
Saint Patrick's Day Saturday 17th March 1996 saw the birth of arguably Irelandâ€™s most influential Club. Lush! @ Kellys Portrush.
The Opening Night was a capacity sell out, and that set the tone for 16 years of weekly parties that would put some of the so called "World Famous Brands" to shame ..
With Resident DJ/Promoter Col Hamilton at the helm & a music policy of House/Prog/Tech & Trance the Lush! Dancefloor has rocked to pretty much every big name DJ in the world ... From Sasha & Digweed to David Guetta & the Swedes, from Paul Van Dyk & Tiesto to Carl Cox & Calvin Harris and 100's in between, also along the way giving much needed exposure to a wealth of up & coming UK/European & Local DJs, many of whom have gone on to greater things ...
Lush! Was the first club in Ireland to host BBC Radio 1's Legendary "Essential Mix Live" Show with Pete Tong & Col Hamilton in Sept 1997. Since then Lush! Has held many more live essential mixes featuring the likes of: Sasha, Darren Emerson, Paul Van Dyk, Dave Seaman, Fergie, Seb Fontaine, Col Hamilton & Judge Jules.
Lush! have also hosted Arena's at Creamfields,Homelands & planet love festivals across Ireland north & south. And along with Col Hamilton co-promoted the massive "live in Portrush" beach party in June 2008 which featured "the chemical brothers live" eric prydz,steve angello,fedde le grande + many more and attracted a sell out crowd of nearly 20,000.
In 2008 Lush! Was voted 24th Best club in the world by DJ magazine which is an awesome achievement and has featured in the top 100 clubs every year since.
Now in it's sixteenth year and with 4 Total re-fits since 1996 Lush! Is still at the top of it's game. Lush! Still runs Every Saturday to an adoring & loyal crowd of clubbers who feel as if they have grown up with the club, and many of them have!!
