By now, house and techno music fans will be familiar with 360° parties. The unforgettable nights have seen live sets from the biggest DJs in the biz, such as John Digweed, Dimitri From Paris, Lee Burridge, and Darius Syrossian, at Manchester Cathedral, under the wings of a Concorde plane, in Victoria Baths, and at other venues further afield. Now, Manchester 360° is returning to Victoria Baths for an epic two-day event on the April Bank Holiday weekend, and we cannot wait.
360° parties pride themselves on taking place in unique venues with a 360-degree element, and clearly the Grade-II listed Edwardian building fits the bill. How often can you say you’ve partied at a century-old swimming pool?! DJs Len Faki and Sam Divine will headline each of the two days; choose your fave or go to both – it’s totally your choice!
What can you expect at Victoria Baths in April?
On Friday night (April 7), renowned Turkish-German DJ Len Faki will takeover Victoria Baths, spinning techno tunes as hypnotising project mapping fills the venue. The Mekong Delta and My Black Sheep hitmaker is formerly resident DJ of Berlin techno club Berghain, so you know it’s going to be wild. Supporting his extended set will be Aalice from Meat Free, and the duo will keep the place pumping for a heady six hours.
The following day (Saturday, April 8), First Lady of Defected Records DJ Sam Divine will take to the decks for an extended set. The Saturday session will last a solid seven hours, kicking off at 3pm, as the stained glass windows and stunning architecture are illuminated by an incredible light show. Divine has played in some of Ibiza’s biggest clubs year after year, and held residencies in spots like Pacha, Mambo, Amnesia, Eden and Ushuaïa, so you know you’re in for a damn good night here too.
Manchester 360° brings some of the best house and electronic experiences to life, and no matter where you are dancing in Victoria Baths, you’ll be in prime position – and the DJs will have a panoramic view of the revellers too. Manchester 360º is a collaboration between Fever and JBM Music – both juggernauts in the entertainment industry – so it’s guaranteed to go off.
