RUDE has been there, done it and bought the t-shirt and remains a much loved and respected party – and now, for its huge 17th birthday, the party is taking over Manchester’s amazing Sankeys to help usher in the celebrations. The special guest is one of Manchester’s very own stars, Jason Herd, a talisman on the local scene and also a globally-revered spinner. There’s a brace of talent supporting Jason in the Basement, as well as a RUDE takeover in the Bar spearheaded by Daz Pearson, Danny Knight and Mike Thewlis.
House music doesn’t really get much better than this – RUDE will be showing how it’s really done on Friday 2nd September. Happy birthday RUDE!!!
