Finally, some live music again! We’re thrilled to announce an eclectic series of shows at Manchester’s freshest outdoor venue Homeground – a space launched by HOME that is set to play host to a programme that spans live music, theatre, film and more later this month.
Starting May 2021, Band on the Wall presents one-off events featuring performances from world-renowned artists, brought to Manchester’s Homeground for you to dive into.

Attention Earth!!! This is HENGE. We come in the name of rave. We bring you the gift of Cosmic Dross – a kind of music new to your world. We have news. Planet Earth is an experiment. Your species was send codes from space, to help you love and dance. But your leaders grew scared. They hid the codes from you. Now your consciousness shrinks and they destroy your world with weapons of war. Ravelings of Earth, Rebel! Absorb the mutated frequencies of Cosmic Dross. There are no Earth words to describe these sounds, but you will learn how to love and dance again. This is your future, put down the weapons. Unite, and colonise space.

A must-see at Manchester’s brand new outdoor space HOMEground, Henge are extra-terrestrial beings who fuse electronic dance music, prog, psychedelia into a new genre called ‘cosmic dross’. Henge throw wild, sci-fi themed raves.
