Held in a secret location in Manchester, Dystopia987 is a waking dream that features Skepta’s singular vision of the future: deep, dark, radical and riveting.

Dystopia987 presents a live set from Skepta along with guest appearances from individually picked Dj’s and performers. It’s a journey into eternity, a future riven with uncertainty and fear but rich in wonder and possibility.

Skepta described the project as “Real Life Magic”.

Skepta has become one of the most significant British artists in music since emerging as a producer and MC in 2004. After being nominated for a BRIT Award and winning The Mercury Prize, he has built a diverse audience through both recordings and live performances, his constant influence is felt throughout contemporary culture.
