Gok Wan has announced a very special night at the Limelight, Belfast on Friday 29th March, joined on the night by Pete Snodden.

Gok Wan MBE is amongst the most respected and recognisable personalities across media and fashion, with award winning presenting on TV, critically acclaimed books and more recently, creating the Isolation Nation movement, whereby during the lockdown period of 2020, using his DJing and passion for uplifting and uniting people, Gok took to live streams to give his legion of followers, comfort escape and sanctuary during difficult times. 

Channelling his love of soulful, uplifting house, Gok used 2020 to press forward his foray into the music artistry, teaming up with up-and-coming producer Craig Knight and UK song writing and singing legend Kele Le Roc to release an up-to-date energy filled rendition of ‘Let Me Be Your Fantasy’. Gok rounded off a fast-moving 2020 by releasing his ‘Isolation Nation’ compilation, curated, and mixed by him, on world renowned house label Defected Records, preselling over 3000 copies leading to a subsequent Volume 2 compilation and releasing his first solo release ‘Right Direction’ on his newly minted Isolation Nation Records in 2021. 

As the world opened, Gok seized the opportunity to unite his Isolation Nation family further, with a national tour of venues, beginning at a sold-out Brixton Electric London and subsequently seeing capacity crowds gather in Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow all the way down to Torquay. This incredible movement was buoyed by Goks own touring, visiting numerous festivals and events, leading to him performing at the Glade arena Glastonbury, Pride London, Bestival and in the main room at Amnesia Ibiza to rapturous crowds, as he released the euphoric ‘All Night Long’ single with Kumora featuring Kevin Haden, which to date has been heard on ITVs Love Island and enjoyed a top 40 hit position on iTunes. 

Looking ahead, Gok plans to open up the Isolation Nation brand further to the hundreds of thousands of people reached by his streams, with the hope to unify all the people touched by his message, in the live event space, as well as spreading his love of music further and wider.
