Manchester Soul Weekender (6th July – 8th July) news release
The Manchester Soul Weekender (6th July – 8th July) is now under two months away. The idea behind the weekender was to create a soul weekender that will grow and develop each year with passionate DJ’s. We have learnt a lot from year 1 and have made changes to make year 2 even more enjoyable.
The DJ’s we have chosen will bring something different to the table and a play a cross-section of soul music for your enjoyment. They are music lovers and collectors from UK, Europe and USA. All records over the weekender will be original vinyl.
We have handpicked the venues for their intimacy and sound systems. Our Friday night venue is Revolution on Oxford Road, based in the city centre, where the evening commences at 7pm upstairs and then from 9pm we take over downstairs too. This gives you two venues under one roof. Saturday afternoon offers you the choice of 3 venues across the city centre – Cottonopolis, Jimmy’s and Dimitris.
Saturday evening is just a short taxi/bus ride away in Fallowfield at Revolution. Where once again we take over the entire venue with two rooms offering a wide range of music, from 7pm to 3am. For those of you who are early risers or haven’t yet gone to bed the Sunday morning brunch session will be held in Cottonopolis where you can ease yourself into the final day.
The final session of the weekend takes place at Revolution Deansgate Locks from 4pm. A venue which we used last year on the Friday night, which has the advantage of an outside area looking over the canal where you can still enjoy the music.
Manchester is a fantastic city with a wide range of bars and restaurants covering a multiple of tastes. The added advantage of a wide range of clothes shops, vintage shops and record shops. If you fancy a bit of culture you will find plenty of this.
