The last event in the Nocturnal City series explores the London – Manchester interplay with an evening of panels, installations and music performances.
With an influential past in the club scene, Manchester emerges as one of London’s most equipped cultural counterparts. But how can the two cities learn from each other to promote alternative scenes outside the mainstream? This event opens a cultural exchange between both cities to explore common grounds and discuss opportunities. It invites participants from new scenes to share ideas and question current structures. The event will feature a special music programme by Nik Void (Factory Floor / Carter Tutti Void).
Nocturnal City is a series of events running throughout 2017 exploring the state of nightlife and its influence. By connecting discussions in London with other world cities, the series explores how urban hubs and communities can learn from each other to create new cultural standards. From algorithmic dance parties to all-female techno collectives, the first virtual nightclubs to the queer club kids and their audacious fashion; a celebration of the scenes, the sounds and the first tube home.
Commissioned and produced by Somerset House Studios. Curated by Studios resident Estela Oliva.
Full programme TBA in December.
