Last year, Fatboy Slim DJ’d at the COVID-19 pilot clubbing event in Liverpool. The two-day clubbing event – alongside a gig featuring the likes of Blossoms and Zuzu – didn’t require attendees to socially distance, wear a face mask or have a vaccine passport to get into the venue, a UK-first at the time.


Writing for NME about the experience, Cook said: “Stepping back into a club for the first time in so long, it gave me that ‘hairs on the back of your neck’ feeling; tingling with excitement but also a flutter of nerves.

“It didn’t feel like ‘this is a dream’, though; it felt more like a return to reality. Just back to normal. It almost felt like all the social distancing and masks were the dream.”
