An evening of music, panel discussions and installations exploring the state of nightlife and the London - Manchester interplay, with a special music programme curated in collaboration with Nik Void (Factory Floor, Carter Tutti Void). With an influential past in the club scene and a fast-evolving new scene, Manchester is one of London's most equipped cultural counterparts. But how can the two cities learn from each other to ensure alternative scenes continue to flourish outside the mainstream? This event opens a cultural exchange between both cities to explore common grounds and discuss opportunities. It invites participants to share ideas for making night spaces safer, and to question the future of nightlife. This is the last in a series of Nocturnal City events exploring the state of nightlife and its influence. By connecting discussions in London with other world cities, the series explores how urban hubs and communities can learn from each other to create new cultural standards. From algorithmic dance parties to all-female techno collectives, the first virtual nightclubs to the queer club kids and their audacious fashion; a celebration of the scenes, the sounds and the first tube home.
