Manchester’s favourite hangout, have curated a full summer programme of alfresco-style ‘vinyl only’ parties – taking place every weekend on the terrace, in Waterhouse Way and running up until Saturday 17th August.

Their exclusive summertime playlist can be heard in Waterhouse Way, starting from 5pm to 8pm every Friday and from 4pm to 8pm every Saturday with a lazy & hazy soundtrack of laid back beats and soulful sounds all played on specially selected vinyl.

Summer weeks will welcome some of Manchester’s most renowned disc jockeys and club gatherings, with appearances from the likes of Ad Hoc Records, Supernature, Me Gusta, Moodymanc, Lord Chester, Roots Before Branches, Jeff O’Toole and Martin Brew (JWalk) (to name a few) before the annual Come As You Are Weekender closes off the proceedings at the end of August.
