SINCE its birth is 2012, Don’t Let Daddy Know has had insane success, with its unreal line ups and notorious venues.
Not only are we lucky to experience DLDK in the UK but it has toured worldwide and hosted festival stages at Creamfields and three times sold out Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.
DLDK is known for its crazy dance music, pyrotechnics, lasers and talented DJ acts. In February last year, 8,500 clubbers gathered in the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh, and this year, DLDK can be seen in India, Macau, Spain and of course, Manchester.
This years line up for Manchester includes names like Show Tek, Blasterjaxx and Don Diablo. Another DJ playing on the night is Sem Vox, the founder of DLDK and Quays News caught up with him to ask about the event and what fans can expect on Sunday night.

“I love dance music and the whole industry around it,” Vox replied when I asked him why DLDK was set up. “It was always a dream for me to set up a concept like this.”
There’s quite the mix of DJ’s playing at DLDK, and Vox explained that “they all have their own sound which is important to attract different kinds of people, and of course no one wants to hear the same track more than once in a night.”
So far, Vox explained that “everything is going really well. I’ve been to visit the venue and it looks huge”.
Victoria Warehouse, where DLDK will be hosted this bank holiday Sunday, is famous for its Warehouse Project events which have been running September to New Year since 2006.
“I love it. It’s small in comparison to venues we normally take DLDK too but I love the vibe in there.”
“The event will be sold out,” Sem said. As it has been for the past 2 years at venues all over the world.
“I love the UK crowd, they are WILD,” he added.
With a name like DLDK, people are interested to know what it’s all about.
“It’s a long story! We started the party in Ibiza, and now travel with it all over the world. The name says it all – Don’t Let Daddy Know what happened at the event.”
Other than the incredible music we can expect on the night, Vox explained he was excited for “the energy from the crowd, the flags, the love.” And not only is there a new venue but Vox tells of a “bigger production” this year.
And what can we expect from the night? “Madness!”
