Feel good this Friday with our Feel Good Club takeover – plus an unmissable night with Dutch Uncles playing live and DJ Paulette on the decks
We eased into the day with Lunchtimes on the Square featuring The Untold Orchestra’s genre-bending cellist Polly Virr before an afternoon of talks from Feel Good Club. Kiera and Aimie Lawlor-Skillen are the changemakers behind this Northern Quarter mental health bar/coffee shop and brand with a simple aim: make people feel good about themselves.
We celebrated the start of the weekend with newcomer iamkyami – a music producer, artist and all-round creative. Then it was time to crack out that microphone with Feel Good Club’s LGBTQ+ open mic night Queer as F*ck followed by Miss Chief Cabaret featuring iconic cabaret stars Banksie, Lil and Violet Blonde.
Electro art rock quartet and Manchester favourites Dutch Uncles were up next with a show that got Fezzy Square pumping. Headlining was DJ Paulette with a mega four-hour set. Close your eyes, breathe in the festival air and dance into the early hours with the ultimate Friday party.
