Graham Creelman is a forklift driver by day but at night turns into a superstar DJ.

The dad from Denny is taking to the decks this weekend in front of thousands of revellers for the 20th anniversary tour of Fantazia, despite playing his first gig less than three years ago.

The dance festival is one of the long-established events dedicated to old school and rave and the club night travels all over the world entertaining clubbers.

Graham (39), who goes by the name of Fastbuck when DJing, says opening the dance music festival will be by far his biggest gig to date.

He said: “I actually went to one of the very first Fantazias back in 1993 at the SECC in Glasgow and I can’t get over that I’ll be playing with Fantazia too.

“I’m opening the show, which is a massive pressure when I’ve not been DJing for long, but it is going to be amazing.”

Graham, who works at Forth Docks in Grangemouth, added: “I love being behind the decks and my daughter Ruth (14) and stepson Greig (14) are really curious about what I do.

“I don’t know if I’ll still have the energy to take them clubbing by the time they hit 18 though.”

Fantazia - The Northern Uproar will be at The Arches in Glasgow on Saturday (November 26). Tickets cost £25 plus booking fee from www.thearches.co.uk with a select number at £30 available on the door on the night.
