ShinDigger and Reform Radio are ringing in their joint tenth birthday with “A Decade In The Game” festival on Saturday 9 September being held at The Yard, Cheetham Hill.

Since launching their ventures in the same co-working space in 2013, ShinDigger and Reform Radio have co-produced numerous events over the years. The festival marks their most significant collaboration, filled with live music, food vendors, market stalls, kids activities, and beginners DJ sessions. An exclusive ShinDigger x Reform beer will also be unveiled on the day.

The music lineup is a vibrant mix of some of the city’s most exciting acts. Reform’s flagship DJ and artist development programs will kickstart the day, followed by soulful performances by Saint Harmony and Beatrix.

A special homage will be paid to Reform’s first studio with The Basement All Stars’ performance, consisting of Bobby James, Horace James, Wayne Parkes & One Million Sunsets. The Nandina Collective will deliver psychedelic-funk inflected sultry 70s grooves, while Andrea Trout and ShinDigger Sessions favourite, Léna C, will go back-to-back for the first time.

The mysteriously masked Reform residents Cooper T will bring their riotous live show to the early evening, with Levi Love going B2B with drowzee. Obeka’s energetic percussive live show, fresh off a recent release on Reform’s record label, will complement an explosive cypher by the all-female and non-binary rap collective HERchester.

The night will feature OneDa’s last live act before a European tour and conclude with exclusive performances by legendary Mr. Scruff with Superlative and a unique back-to-back set from Murder He Wrote and DR MYSTERY.

ShinDigger will have 8 beers on draught, including the new Yuzu Pale, alongside Caribbean food from Knights BBQ and Greek BBQ from Souvlaki Xpress.

Tickets are available at ShinDigger’s website.
