The Hacienda//

Owned by Factory Records, The Hacienda was a nightclub and music venue big in the 'Madchester' era, between 1982 and 1997. Labelled the most famous club in the world by Newsweek, the venue - real name Fac 51 Hacienda - is synonymous with the rise of acid and house music throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, and was funded for the most part of its run by record sales from band New Order.

We began looking at The Hacienda for inspiration after it was mentioned to us in a seminar by Matt. The background for the venue is something we feel to be quite relevant to The Factory, with strong links to different areas of art culture (financed by music label Factory Records, designed by famous graphic designer Peter Saville...) and the aesthetic of the club with its red brick warehouse history.

The look and graphics surrounding The Hacienda are quite industrial, which because of the name The Factory could be worth bearing in mind for the look of our zine.
