The Best Club Nights in Manchester: November 2018

As we dust off the fake cobwebs from all the Halloween specials, here enters November and by far the longest list of insane raves throughout the month.

Please excuse this particular club listing, because in my eyes there is only one that comes up heads and tails above the rest and I have been waiting for it since probably May – BICEP AT MAYFIELD DEPOT. More on that later…

Zutekh presents Jasper James @ Soup Kitchen
Friday 2nd November
It could be a tiny warm up for the huge line up at Defected New Year’s Day at Victoria Warehouse, at which Jasper is headlining, but even if it isn’t, he’s bloody mint and it would be great to see him at a small venue!

Warehouse Project presents: Underworld @ Store Street
Friday 2nd November
Just imagine experiencing Born Slippy live. Then remember that they’re one of the best trace DJ’s going and Iggy Pop might come on stage with them again… and then wonder why you haven’t got a ticket.

WHP x MIF Special Edition – Bonobo Presents: Outlier @ Mayfield Depot
Saturday 3rd November
These set of special editions warehouse project and Manchester International Festival raves feel like they fell out of my dreams and into reality. Old, abandoned warehouse, check. Unbelievable artists with the sound and visuals to fill the space, check. Oh, and Massive Attack played there once so that’s an honour in itself. This particular dreamy line up includes Bonobo, George Fitzgerald, Gilles Peterson, Palms Trax, Shanti Celeste and Josey Rebelle.

Waiting List

WHP x MIF Special Edition – Bicep Live @ Mayfield Depot
Saturday 10th November
DID I MENTION I AM EXCITED FOR THIS ONE? If you have plans that day, cancel them. Do not miss this bloody gig. Their album has been the soundtrack to everyone’s year, and watching every one of their gigs on instagram they have been blowing heads off around the world and now it’s our turn! I remember when they used to play in basements of grotty clubs in Leeds to barely many people and now they’re a sell-out act, listen to the damn album and you’ll see why. Love you Bicep.
