There aren’t many occasions when you can dance the night away in a cathedral with wondrous waves of funk washing through your body. However, at Manchester 360º, this is exactly what you can expect. On Friday, March 31, the iconic Jocelyn Brown – vocalist behind hits such as ‘Somebody Else’s Guy’ – will bring disco music magic to Manchester Cathedral; filling the centuries-old venue with joyous tunes, soulful vocals and funkadelic beats that will have you glued to the dancefloor from start to finish. The glittering lineup also includes Soul Boutique, Bombard Groove and Disco Kath, so you can be sure you’ll be treated to dance-inducing music all night long.
From vibrant light shows to the electric atmosphere, Manchester 360º transforms the old frescoed ceilings and stained glass windows of the cathedral into something new. 360º nights endeavour to bring electronic disco experiences to unique spaces, and highlight a 360-degree element – in this case, the stage will sit at the heart of the venue, as a huge organ looms above partygoers’ heads. Not only that but you can expect to see hypnotic projection mapping fill the space with a kaleidoscope of colour and patterns that highlight the striking features of the architectural gem, plus a state-of-the-art sound system which will bless your eardrums with crystal-clear music so you won’t miss a beat.
If that alone doesn’t already pique your interest, the presence of dance music legend Jocelyn Brown will definitely have you digging out your favourite disco flares. The American singer shot to fame with her co-written song ‘Somebody Else’s Guy’ and has appeared on a wealth of dance hits throughout the course of her career, collaborating with the likes of Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Luther Vandross and many others. You can expect to boogie on down to a setlist consisting of songs such as ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’, ‘Believe’, ‘Enough Is Enough’ and more.
360º is taking over Europe one city at a time, from Paris and Brussels to Geneva and Milan, it has proved a hit with crowds around the world and now brings the best house, dance and disco music experiences to life here in the UK. The Manchester event is a collaboration between entertainment discovery maestros Fever, and national events company JBM Music. You can trust them to put on an epic night to remember, so make sure you snap up tickets fast as they’re already disappearing faster than you can say Manchester 360º.
