Nicky Holloway

Nicky first began DJ’ing in south London’s Old Kent Road back in the early 1980’s and so began his long and illustrious career in clubland…

His reputation heightened when his club nights such as Special Branch and Doo’s At The Zoo, alongside the likes of Pete Tong and Gilles Peterson, began to be essential nights out in the nation’s capital city.

Also one of the ‘Ibiza Four’ who travelled to the White Isle in 1987, Nicky alongside Paul Oakenfold, Johnny Walker, Danny Rampling and an Argentine DJ called Alfredo Fiorito, created the Balearic chic which was to enhance Ibiza’s reputation as a party destination and subsequently change the face of clubs in the UK forever.

In 1988 Nicky opened The Trip night at the West End’s Astoria which soon after became Sin and helped spread the burgeoning acid house culture. In April 1990, he opened the Milk Bar in Sutton Row with various nights such as Pure Sexy, Glam and FUBAR which also saw the likes of David Morales, Tony Humphries, The Brand New Heavies and Jamiroquai guesting at this hallowed venue.

Having grown up in Barnet and known Andy as well as many of the Soulstice crew from back in the day, Nicky is one of the event’s original DJs and continues to support the cause every year, bringing his legendary skills and vision to our event which includes some very memorable Club Tent finale’s over the past few years!
