Award winning Manchester-based cultural enterprise ‘Un-Convention’ proudly presents its first ever three-part festival, on home soil, this weekend.
The independent community will take over Hulme and beyond to celebrate its passion for music, football and food, featuring everything from DJs and live acts to star footballers and international cuisine.
“Hulme has been the birthplace for grassroots reggae, punk, jungle, house and electronic music in Manchester due to the diversity of its inhabitants and the constant stream of club after-parties held in the squats and abandoned flats there,” Un-Convention media co-ordinator, Alex Butcher, said.
“It’s the perfect place to hold our event, not only because Hulme was largely responsible for the dance music scene in Manchester but also because the people who created and contributed are still living in the area.”
With support from the likes of the Arts Council, PRS for Music, Primavera Sound, the Roundhouse and Manchester City Council, Un-Convention hosts and organises cultural events across the globe, from South America to Asia and back to Salford.
