The end of August is upon us. Pretty soon we will all turn to disco dust. So get up, forget the past, go outside and have a blast …

Yep – that’s my clarion (and rallying) call to all my hard partying, Bank Holiday weekend and Gay Pride starship troopers. There’s a big weekend of parties coming to Manchester and everyone’s invited.

It’s also a mega busy weekend for me so join my entourage and let’s roll, squad!

Friday August 25th



Find me in the Gaydio Arena at Manchester Pride – set time 20h – 21h (GMT)

Full set times for this stage are as follows:

19.00 20.00  Tacet
20.00 21.00  DJ Paulette
21.00 22.15   Danielle Moore (Crazy P DJ Set)
22.15 0.00     Simian Mobile Disco (DJ Set)

Then I’m hoofing it straight over to the Refuge to play warm up to Luke Unabomber and this little cutie in the sleazy red Basement.

Electric Chair present Derrick Carter.

I’ll be on the decks in the basement from 22h – 23h30 Derrick should be on the decks around 1am.

Saturday August 26th

Saturday is all about the Handsome boat party (daytime) and Pen and Pencil at night.


Sunday August 27th

Roll up, roll up for the main events:

Starting the day off in the best possible way with the Albert’s Schloss Sunday Service brunch session. That’s me, Will Tramp and AMC Gospel Choir in the house, keeping you entertained over roasts and cruffins and kronuts.


Then it’s a short walk over to The Refuge on Whitworth Street for the Homoelectric Presents: Come As You Are. I’ll be spinning outdoors in the glorious Courtyard, alongside some of Manchester’s finest djs.


12pm – 2pm Kath McDermott
2pm – 3pm Andrea Trout
3pm – 4pm Blasha & Allatt (Meat Free)
4pm – 5pm Will Tramp
5pm – 6pm Jamie Bull
6pm – 7pm Paulette
7pm – 8pm Dave Kendrick
8pm – 9pm TBC
9pm – 10pm Krysko


It’s a quick whizz in my Superwoman telephone box and a quantum leap over to Etherow Country Park for a house classics set at the Moovin Festival.

MOOVIN Poster Final LowRes

I’ll be on the decks there from 20h30.

And the pièce de résistance? It’s time for Handsome’s Pride Party at Underdog.


Doors open at 10am – me, Jamie Bull and Dave Kendrick will be bringing it house, disco and jacking chicago style and Josh Caffé’s in the houssssssse for a big PA.

As for Monday August 28th …

As far as I know this is a designated duvet and Netflix day but it would be rude to say ‘no’ if there was to be one more party…
