- The British institution invites tINI, Steve Lawler, Cassy and more across six parties ahead of its July festival in Manchester this summer.
Sankeys has announced the lineups for the first part of its 25th anniversary celebrations this year.
In the lead-up to a festival in Manchester this July, the UK institution, which launched in 1994, will go on tour throughout England from February through April. The first stop is London's Studio 338 for an opening party with Steve Lawler, Bontan, Artful Dodger, Andrew Kay and more on February 23rd. (They'll return to the Greenwich club exactly one month later.)
The four other parties will take place in Essex, Sheffield, Newcastle and Southampton, with venues still TBA. DJs appearing at those parties include Latmun, East End Dubs, Darius Syrossian, Amine Edge & DANCE, Mason Maynard and more.
The July 13th festival will bring many of those previously named acts across five stages at a TBA new venue in Manchester. Also invited are tINI, Cassy, Sam Divine, DJ SKT, Sidney Charles, Hector Couto and Jamie Roy, among others. (Additional artists to come.) The five stages will each have a theme: Sankeys By Day, Sankeys By Night, Unusual Suspects, The Redlight and Dance 88/89.
Details for Sankeys' remaining anniversary festivities for the rest of 2019 will be revealed at a later date.
