The Loft has unveiled its October line-up, presenting a spectrum of heavyweight headliners alongside some new wave DJs from across the globe and Manchester’s ever growing pool of selectors.  

The Loft sits at the cusp of Manchester city centre in Miles Platting, yet forms an integral  part of the North’s clubbing map. This next year, The Loft will present new names, faces and events within the esteemed four walls of the club.

Tomorrow (Saturday 1st October), kicks off with Manchester’s rapidly growing techno collective 01366, who are teaming up with Berlin-based party starter BCCO, for their first UK excursion. Joining will be techno heavyweight Matrixxman, Future.666, Lyza for her Manchester debut and  01366’s Joey Stella and Twelve Seven. Friday 14th October brings house don, DJ and  producer Sidney Charles all night long.

The following day, PALOMA returns for its second segment, an evening committed to  introducing new sounds to The Loft. Cult heroes Paranoid London will be bringing sounds spanning acid house, electro and synth. Expect a similar approach from local selectors Natalia, EJ & Rosa who are all slowly carving their way as some of the most exciting Manchester DJs on the current circuit. 

On Saturday 22nd October, The Loft Presents: Herodot,  Desyn + guests. Romanian techno wizard Herodot, will take to the decks to present minimal sounds, which are no stranger to The Loft’s dancefloor.  

The final weekend of October sees three-days of parties. 28th October marks the launch of Refocus, a night of techno exploration curated by Manchester’s very own, globally respected  techno connoisseur, Yant. The inauguration welcomes one of the most exciting names coming out of Berlin, Sedef Adasi, plus local legend Aletha with her hypnotic, intelligent rhythms.

You&Me will be taking over the venue on Saturday 29th October, and the month will be wrapped with a bang as Krew Love return on Sunday 30th. Expect some high energy sets from  Manchester’s biggest and baddest garage selectors.  

Friday and Saturday nights at The Loft run from 11pm till 4am or 5am, Sunday sessions run  from 2pm to 11pm. Tickets for all events can be purchased via the link below.
