Manchester in recent years has become something of a mecca for house and techno enthusiasts from across the world. But this Saturday, Manchester’s Albert Hall — a former Methodist church in the heart of Manchester city centre — will be thrumming to a disco beat as La Discotheque makes its welcome return and they’ve line-up an almighty international line-up.
Headlining La Discotheque’s first party of 2018 will be legendary French duo Cassius who are one France’s most celebrated duos and played a major role in the country’s iconic French house scene during the 90s.
They’ll be joined by German disco machine Purple Disco Machine who we recently sat down with to discuss his excellent debut album, which was released late last year via Australian imprint, Sweat It Out.
Joining them will be the likes of Prosumer, Crazy P and Studio 54 stalwart Nicky Siano who will be bringing his Hallelujah Disco, complete with a live gospel choir, to Manchester for the very first time.
Manchester’s very own party starters HomoElectric will be up in the VIP bell tower with residents Jamie Bull, Luke Unabomber and Will Tramp giving us a slice of the 0161 to this already star-studded, international line-up.
Something unique to this weekend’s La Discotheque party is the aptly named “La Pisscotheque” which takes place — yes you’ve guessed it — in the basement toilets of the Albert Hall.
A clever nod to Manumission’s legendary toilets, La Discotheque will be resurrecting the long-lost club toilet culture with Danielle Moore of Crazy P and DJ Paulette both set to perform — so, ladies, if there’s a long queue for the toilet you’ll probably know why.
