The heavyweight event also features the Manchester debut of King Midas Sound, the roots-heavy dub and dancefloor crossover brought to you by The Bug and Roger Robinson along with a DJ set from the obsessive collectors behind Modern Love project Demdike Stare. Support comes from Manchester’s Finders Keepers collective and Boomkat music obsessive Conor Thomas.”
