This October marks the 5th birthday of one of Manchester’s most successful and colossal nights – BITCH.
With its inception came the phenomenal Sunday parties at the legendary Sankeys, packed to the rafters with its now famous outstanding and glamorous crowd of dedicated followers, the Bitch brand cemented itself as one of the most up for it and musically spot on nights this side of the Balearics!
Having hosted some of the biggest names in the industry such as Laidback Luke, Mark Knight, Benny Bennassi and Eric Prydz, Bitch was sparring with the heavyweights and soon hosting its third anniversary at the sellout and nationally revered Warehouse Project; a testament to the incredible three years Bitch had already conquered. We also had the unbelievable achievement of being involved with The Swedish House Mafia on their ‘One Night Only’ tour in London which saw us host the second room.
Tours weren’t far behind this massive achievement that took Bitch to Leeds where it firmly punched its North West mark on the Yorkshire streets for a year of illustrious events that had Manchester crying out for the Bitch crew to return! And so it did, finding a new home at Venus in September 2010 that brought record numbers through the doors, catapulting Bitch to unprecedented highs and making the monthly dates a must not miss for every house music fan in Manchester and beyond!
Five years later here we are, BIGGER, BOLDER and most definitely STRONGER, this Bitch has got some partying to do!
Headlining the 5th Birthday knees up is the exceptional talent of ARNO COST; this French DJ has also been smashing up dance floors for the past five years and become one of the scene’s most promising talents. Supported by the likes of Pete Tong, Tom Novy and Sebastian Ingrosso, Arno knows what beats tear up a room and we don’t doubt he’s going to shake his formidable flavour all over Bitch!
Supporting Arno Cost will be another breakthrough act that is making killer waves all through the house circuit and impressed the gang leaders at SIZE records, SHM’s Steve Angello’s sort after label, seeing TIM MASON hit the ground running and releasing stellar tracks and gaining massive support from the likes of Axwell, Ingrosso, Laidback Luke and many more.
This birthday is all about success stories and next up on our line-up is Radio 1’s “Superstar DJ 2011 Winner” DANNY HOWARD. Danny went up against thousands of other hopefuls to be crowned the public’s choice and was whisked to Ibiza to play the Radio 1’s weekend party at USHUAIA and before he had a chance to catch his breath he was on the decks at the World’s #1 club SPACE. Only days past before he was back on the white isle, back in command of Space for PUKKA UP and showing exactly why he deserved to win! There are big things on the horizon for Danny Howard.
No Bitch night would be the same without our uber cool, uber talented and uber BITCHIN’ residents LEMPO, PETE MOBEY, MARK KOVICH and a very special back to back from our DJ COMPETITION WINNERS – MARTYN RUSSO & REWORKED ROBOT. This main room will have you on your knees by the time we’re finished with you!!
Apart from unbelievable parties and the biggest and best lineups Bitch is famous for its array of the hottest Girls around!!! This Birthday will see something special from the Bitch girls. It’s Halloween and they are having a full makeover. We are running a competition to find 5 Bitch girls and the lucky winners will be having a professional photo shoot and become regular Bitch girls. More details will be released on this in the next few days but expect a parade of the finest Bitches Manchester has to offer this Halloween.
The doors are opening at the earlier time of 10pm to make sure we milk this for everything it has got!!
Help us celebrate in the way only Bitches know how… SEE YOU ON THE DANCEFLOOR.
