Keep it Unreal celebrates 23 years! This one is a very special session. At We Out Here festival in 2021, Mr. Scruff, Charlie Dark, Mikey D.O.N played a 4 hour B2B2B set in the Love Dancin’ tent. Strictly 1 tune each for the whole thing, all held together by the original smile factory: MC Kwasi. Vanessa Freeman got involved on the mic too, and for many of us it was the highlight of the festival. So, for this celebration of 23 years of Keep It Unreal, we are going to repeat this lineup in Manchester, with a 6 hour session in the main room. The amazing Donna Leake will be playing all night in room 2. All welcome, regardless of age, nationality, mobility, gender or sexuality. Regulars & first timers getting down together… mixed up music for a lovely mix of people!
Warm up for the night by checking out this mix from the 2021 edition of We Out Here festival, featuring Mr Scruff, Charlie Dark, Mikey D.O.N & MC Kwasi.
Plus, here’s a mix via Amsterdam label Music From Memory from Donna Leake, who will be warming up the bar from 7-late.
PHONES ON THE DANCEFLOOR
Please don’t use phones on either dancefloor. We ask this because we want the dancefloor to be a place where everyone can be in the moment. If you’re tweeting, texting, bidding for a pair of socks on eBay or taking a picture of your friends, you’re not only out of the moment, you also might be making it hard for someone else to be in the moment. The bar areas or balcony is a much better place for this.
Be nice to everyone. Tip the lovely bar staff. Say excuse me if you bump into someone.
Respect other people’s space. If you’re made to feel uncomfortable, or if you see anyone behaving inappropriately let one of our staff know, and we will sort it. We will not stand for inappropriate behaviour of any kind. If you witness or are subjected to sexual harassment, intimidation, unwanted invasion of your personal space or any other form of disrespect, let a member of staff know and we will deal with the situation in a way that makes you feel comfortable – we’re prepared to do anything from have a quiet word to contacting the police.
TICKETS ON THE DOOR
Check online to see if there will be any on the door, and if so, come down early if you don’t have a ticket.
If you have a wheelchair, please let us know in advance (at least a week’s notice is ideal) & we will do our best to reduce the number of tickets on sale to give more room to manoeuvre. Please contact the BOTW operations team on 0161 830 3888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The same contact should be used if you need to bring a personal assistant.
