Madchester will return for one weekend only…
Brightening our spirits and, most of all, giving us something to do this bank holiday, Manchester’s United We Stream project has an epic party in store this weekend, bringing back the legendary Haçienda with an impressive line-up of DJs.
The virtual house party will see the likes of Todd Terry, Roger Sanchez and David Morales providing the tunes from the US, with acts such as Graeme Park, K-Klass and Tom Wainwright joining in on the all-day antics from lockdown locations in Manchester itself.
Kicking off at 12 noon, Saturday 11th April, the party won’t stop until midnight on Easter Sunday, bringing the bank holiday vibes directly to you. Tune in with your friends via Zoom, or have a bit of a quarantine party with your housemate with the Haçienda’s first-ever ‘stay at home rave’.
Not only will there be some pretty incredible sets taking place, but half-way through there’ll also be an audience with Shaun Ryder, Peter Hook and Graeme Park who’ll be looking back on their careers together in an extra special Q&A.
The event is free to stream, however, donations are of course encouraged to support Greater Manchester’s nightlife economy and The Greater Manchester’s Mayor’s Charity. You can tune in from 12 noon this Saturday via the United We Stream website here.
