From humble beginnings in student Fallowfield digs to a new studio above Hidden nightclub, underground Manchester radio station Limbo has come far in the past three years.

The independent online radio station was started by a group of friends whilst studying their undergraduate degrees and has grown into a household name since it first began broadcasting in 2016.

Following a brief hiatus this summer, Limbo Radio will return to our airwaves later this month from a brand new studio located above Hidden nightclub – bringing new residents, merchandise and events with it.
