Trafford has had a bit of a bad rep for partying lately after a huge illegal rave was held in the borough last month. But a new socially-distanced party venue is looking to change all that.
Set up in what was previously a car park – because we all know there’s nothing more Manc than partying on concrete – new ‘dance at a distance’ party series Social Avenue has got local revellers talking for all the right reasons.
Bringing in huge headliners like Eats Everything, King of the Rollers and Alan Fitzpatrick, organisers have put together a series of music and food events that they hope will help ‘rescue’ the end of the summer festival season.
The series was initially billed to last six weeks but, following on from the huge success of their initial show with local lads MASON Collective – who are reappearing this Saturday 22nd – the show has been extended to the end of September.
With a lineup that boasts some of the UK’s biggest names in underground music, it’s not one to be missed. Further big artists set to appear on the bill include Skream, Sam Divine, Jess Bays, K Klass, Darius Syrossian, Low Steppa and Circus Recordings’ Yousef, Latmun and Mason Maynard.
And as well as managing to cover all the niche music bookings your heart desires, there’s also a solid bar and street food offering to keep you going throughout the day.
To help maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe, guests can book tickets for groups of between two and six. On arrival, you’ll be shown to a table and expected to remain in your bubble throughout the day.
One-way systems are in place to access bars and toilets as well as to make it easy to get around the site in general. There are stations of hand sanitiser dotted around and masks are advised to be worn where possible.
Powered by a heavyweight Void Soundsystem, this party series will guarantee you feel the bass whilst allowing you to party in the safest way possible.
