Come As You Are Weekender | 24-26th August

With performers including Manchester’s own Danielle Moore, Down To The Sea & Back, and Krysko, this celebration of love, food and music, this three-day event brings Manchester spirit to life. Spend an afternoon at the street party, or party the whole weekend away to fully immerse yourself in this vibrant event.

The Hidden Forest Pt 3-Hidden 3rd Birthday | 26th August

Hidden is celebrating its third birthday this Sunday with a day-to-night Hidden Forest party. Celebrate for twelve hours straight from 4pm to 4am, with a line up including Martin Loose-Cuts, Anton Fitz and Turnpenny. Or take the slightly less intense option and buy the night only ticket for a 10pm start. Tickets are released in batches, with the venue offering cheaper prices the earlier you book, so we recommend buying in advance to avoid being left in the cold.
