Nicky Holloway


Nicky Holloway first began DJ’ing in south London’s Old Kent Road, back in the early 1980’s…

Nicky Holloway tentHis reputation heightened when his club nights such as Special Branch & Doo’s At The Zoo alongside the likes of Pete Tong & Gilles Peterson began to be the essential nights out in the nation’s capital city. Nicky was also one of the ‘Ibiza Four’ who travelled to the white isle back in 1987, alongside Paul Oakenfold, Johnny Walker & Danny Rampling who along with an Argentine DJ called Alfredo Fiorito, created the Balearic chic which was to 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 & 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 & FUBAR which also saw the likes of Dave Morales, Tony Humphries, The Brand New Heavies & Jamiroquai guesting @ this hallowed venue.


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

In 2017, Nicky was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer & is currently undergoing treatment to help him battle the disease. He is still in need of people’s help & has set up an online funding page which, as of in January 2018, was still a few thousand short of his £40,000 goal. If you wish to donate & help Nicky, then please click on the Go Fund Me link below & you will be directed to the page.

We all wish Nicky a speedy recovery here at Soulstice HQ…
