Ministry of Sound Group Ltd.
Welcome to Hed Kandi - the world's most fabulous music and lifestyle brand. We are a record label, a chain of bars, a fashion and beauty brand, a radio show and an international clubbing sensation. Since the brand was born in 1999 as a humble compilation brand it has flourished and grown to become the global phenomenon it is today with a catalogue spanning over 100 albums showcasing Hed Kandi's feel-good signature sound, a host of top 40 hits and one thousand global events annually.
Hed Kandi has been delivering flirty sounds with a sense of humour to grown-up clubbers since their first club residency in London and Ibiza in 2002. Word soon spread about the most lavish and opulently produced events that the UK had seen, resulting in road-blocks and huge demand for Hed Kandi parties nationwide. Before long, Hed Kandi had a network of UK residencies and now operates across the globe, with clubbers from Sydney to Sao Paolo to Stockholm enjoying the Hed Kandi sound every month. Hed Kandi now defines the sound and vision of the international party scene.
Radio listeners can also experience Hed Kandi on the Kiss Network across the UK every Saturday night and daily on Ministry of Sound Radio.
