Sacha Lord-Marchionne has been running music events for over twenty years, building from the ground up with a loyal and hard-working team behind him. Owner of Sankeys during the early 2000s and founder of seasonal clubbers' haunt, Warehouse Project, the Manchester native has made monumental moves within his hometown. As festival season approaches, Manchester beckons another household event as Parklife opens its gates for the sixth year running. We put in a call to Sacha to find out how he's tackling the issue of clubs and drugs, the growth of WHP and Parklife, and why he felt the need to ban man bags and shuffling.
