May Bank Holiday Manchester 2018

Manchester is a huge destination for folks looking to cash in May Bank Holiday, with its sprawling mass of bars, venues and rave emporiums saving their best events for the extended pre-summer weekend.

This time out the May Bank Holiday is a real ravers paradise, with lauded Croatian festival Dimensions launching their summer campaign at Antwerp mansion with Daniel Avery, Octave One and Tom Trago, while Hidden host The Hidden Forest all-dayer with Maayan Nidam, Molly and Anton Fitz, and techno baron Dave Clarke goes all night long at Gorilla, all on the 30th.

The superb Salford-based cutting edge music festival Sounds From the Other City embarks across numerous venues also on the 30th, while for something completely different Dappy plays live at Liquid and Envy in Oldham on the same night.

Take a look below to fill your mind with some more ideas for the long weekend.
