The cover for Sacha Lord’s hotly anticipated inaugural tell-all book, Tales from the Dance Floor has been released. 

The cover features imagery from The Warehouse Project and includes endorsements from best-selling rapper Aitch, Happy Mondays lead singer Shaun Ryder, and bestselling author and DJ Annie Mac.

Sacha Lord, who has co-founded some of the biggest music events in the world, including The Warehouse Project and Parklife festival, will reveal behind-the-scenes accounts and exposés, including never-before-heard hair-raising stories on his early promoter years at seminal Manchester clubs like Sankeys, Home, The Haçienda and Paradise Factory.

Recounting three decades of untold stories spanning Lord’s career, the book will journey through the meteoric rise of Manchester’s house music scene that transformed the city into the capital of nightlife that it is today. 

Readers in the UK can also look forward to a number of famous faces being named as jaw-dropping and shocking events are unveiled.

Speaking about the book, Sacha Lord said:

“Like most Mancunians my age, my life is a tale of two cities. Then and now. It has been the very best of times, and there has also been the worst of times – often in the same week, sometimes in the same night! Manchester really has been the making of me, and it has so much to answer for.

“I’ve been shot at in a drive-by shooting, bundled into a car by gangsters and had death threats. I’ve been sued and broke, I’ve had to deal with an army of rats who were high on cocaine, had £130,000 stolen in an armed robbery and been targeted by a Romanian organised crime gang.

“In the past 30 years, my generation has witnessed a musical revolution, as electronic music went from being a niche genre to arguably the biggest music genre in the world.

“I’ve been lucky to have been in the eye of the storm of this musical and cultural revolution – to have some of the most incredible life-affirming experiences, to meet most of my musical heroes and to have thrown some of the biggest parties this country has ever seen, and I’m excited to reveal all in this book.”

The book is co-authored with best-selling author Luke Bainbridge and will be published by HarperNorth, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, in April 2024.
