Jamaican legend Barrington Levy was one of the first stars of the dancehall reggae scene and he’s landing in the gorgeous venue with support from The Skatalites, a Jamaican ska band.

You don’t get more legendary than this! Returning for a special club night with some music titans including Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Graeme Park, and DJ Paulette, The Hacienda figureheads will have everyone jumping and reminiscing here after the Hacienda Classical show at Castlefield Bowl earlier in the day. The official afterparty soundtracked by the people who created a powerful dance scene in Manchester, this will be wild and worth every penny.

We did say Albert Hall has a smashing calendar of events. Another stunner due to pop off in September is Sasha B2B John Digweed, two pioneering DJs playing for four hours straight together. These two set the bar for other electronic duos in the 90s. That should tell you almost everything you need to know. Head here for a master house in techno and prog house. 


Tickets for Sasha B2B John Digweed (4 hour set) | Saturday 30th September 2023
