  • A new one-day festival is coming to Manchester in November. Homobloc, which will go down on Saturday the 9th, is run by Homoelectric, a Manchester-based queer party that's been running events since 1998. The festival will feature more than 50 acts spread across four stages, with slots for the likes of The Black Madonna, Midland, Robyn (who will DJ), Hunee, Seth Troxler, Todd Terje, Róisín Murphy, Jayda G, Honey Dijon, Erol Alkan (who will go back-to-back with Ivan Smagghe) and Optimo alongside local crews such as Meat Free, High Hoops and Kiss Me Again. "We have finally found our holy grail place," Homoelectric founder Luke Unabomber said. "This is something very special, and as ever, this is all about uniting the clans, togetherness, inclusivity and love. Building a place where we can bring together all our people and our heroes and dance till we are free. A queer block party for all." Homobloc will run from 7 PM through 4 AM at Depot, the 10,000-capacity venue formerly known as Mayfield Depot. Broadwick Venues, which runs London's Printworks among other spaces, is part of the team behind the project. It'll also be The Warehouse Project's new home for its upcoming season.
