Fatboy Slim to play gig at House of Commons


Fatboy Slim is the first DJ to perform at the houses of parliament. The DJ, aka Norman Cook, will perform at the Terrace Bar of the House of Commons next month in support of an initiative which aims to raise awareness of community music and promote young people’s social engagement.

Cook said in a statement: “I’ve played some exciting and unique places around the world, from Bondi Beach to the Great Wall of China to an igloo, but playing in the House of Commons might be the most unique to date. Music is a huge part of my life, and to give something back in this way is amazing.”

He will be on the ones and twos alongside the winner of the ‘House the House’ DJ competition, an event hosted by MP and former music executive Mike Weatherley which aims to give a platform to new young talent.

Mike Weatherley, the MP for Hove and Portslade, said: “House the House is giving young people the chance to have a voice, to be recognised for their endeavours and to engage with their communities to create change from the grassroots up. Last Night a DJ Saved My Life and House the House are great examples of what the whole music industry can achieve in an innovative way.”
