Joy is on the menu for the first Saturday of Fezzy Square with multitalented South African superstar Nakhane, local star B!TEZ and Homoelectric all bringing their own blend of euphoric pop

Kicking off with family fun – Our Kids Social start the day right with their super fun DJ sets for all ages. A trio of Manchester-based talent then take over our riverside home – Guacamaya add a cumbia-infused flavour to proceedings, Factory Sounds alumni B!TEZ brings her perfect cerebral pop productions and Cariss Auburn adds her smooth alt. RnB to the mix.

Topping off the bill is international superstar Nakhane. Hailing from South Africa, they’re known for their euphoric alt. pop, and have collaborated with the likes of Perfume Genius, Nile Rodgers and ANOHNI. Get ready to dance away your troubles while their blissed-out sound washes over you, before Bay Bryan performs with a full band – the singer-songwriter is setting the Manchester scene alight with his latest release. To see us out, legends of all things late-night and LGBTQIA+ Homoelectric take over the decks.
