Homoelectric unveil huge Homobloc party in Manchester
The Manchester clubnight unveils an epic lineup for its inaugural festival, including The Black Madonna, Midland, Seth Troxler, Todd Terje and a Robyn DJ Set
Manchester's Homoelectric have long been putting on some of the best clubnights in the country, and were a constant feature of our clubs coverage in the halcyon days of The Skinny North (RIP). This autumn they'll be stepping up a gear with their first festival, taking place 9 November at the Mayfield Depot in Manchester..
Named Homobloc, the all-dayer described as a queer party for all. "Love is the message in a party that unites the clans," says Homoelectric, "for homos, hetros, lesbos, don't knows and disko asbos. Musically Homoelectric was always about a melting pot of music genres; music they loved, from afrobeat, boogie, disco, garage house, techno, voodoo, outer space bass buggin' futurism, and outsider pop all thrown into the mix with no pomp or pretension."
As well as a kick-arse ethos, Homobloc has a jaw-dropping lineup. Spread over four stages, the acts on the bill are a who's who of club culture. Headlining is the mighty Black Madonna, and she'll be joined by the likes of disco legend Roisin Murphy, Scandinavian super DJ HAAi, Leeds producer Midland, Glasgow heroes Optimo and a DJ set from pop superstar Robyn! And that's just the tip of the funky, queer, party-packed iceberg. Find the full Homobloc line-up below...
