Unlocked present the sensational UTAH SAINTS plus support on the night will be from Tony Cannon and Nick Almond and special guest tbc

Utah Saints have been making music, dj’ing and playing gigs around the globe since the birth of House music. The world renowned duo have released 9 Top 40 UK hits, 4 of which hit the Top 10, and sold over 2 million records worldwide (equivalent to 800m+ streams).

Precariously walking the tightrope between genres and also between the underground and the mainstream, Utah Saints roots are in electronic dance music, having met in a club in Leeds at the beginning of the rave movement in the UK and establishing themselves as pioneers of sampling in dance music.

Alongside this success, they set up and promoted award winning and legendary club nights The Gallery and SugarBeatClub and have recorded and presented shows for BBC Radio 1, Kiss and Ministry of Sound. Utah Saints are still very much at the top of their game and are out dj’ing regularly each month as well as curating festival stages and putting on an eclectic range of nights. They have played alongside everyone from DJ Zinc to Justice, Zane Lowe to A-Trak, Friendly Fires to Boys Noize and U2 to Public Enemy.

Recent accolades include being listed in Rolling Stone in 2022 as one of the 200 Greatest Dance Songs of All Time with Something Good.
