Where: Love Factory in Manchester

Mason Collective is back again with another big bank holiday bash following their last bank holiday celebrations at Victoria Baths.

Going down in the independent Manchester warehouse Love Factory over in the Green Quarter, this is the house trio's first party of the summer and, of course, it’ll be jumping. If you haven’t been before, it’s simply a ten-minute walk from Victoria Station, so super easy to get to. 

The trio, known for underground roots, groovy, high-energy sets and their Garden Party concept, bring house, minimal, and tech house from 2 pm, until 11 pm, leaving you plenty of time to sleep off your hangover or power through to the next party. Tickets are flying out with only fourth and final release tickets remaining.

When: Saturday 15th July 2023

Where: Carriage Shed in Chester

Ewan McVicar, crowned Skiddle’s Artist of the Year in 2022, is taking over Chester’s grade-II-listed venue Carriage Shed for a big ol’ day party this July.

Carriage Shed is a semi-covered events space with a capacity of 800 people, perfect for enjoying a summer rave in. Headlining the bill is McVicar, known for his banger remix of Tell Me Something Good, which he released in 2021 to widespread critical acclaim. 

Somewhat smaller than the events McVicar is now accustomed to, with Warehouse Project, Creamfields, and Ibiza superclubs appearances in the bag, this is a unique chance to catch McVicar off the back of some huge festival dates he’s scheduled to perform at this year.

Tickets go on sale this Friday (28th April)!

T-Live Festival


When: Sunday 6th August 2023

Where: Copthall Playing Fields in London

Formerly known as Titan Festival, T-Live returns this year with a lineup of R&B, hip-hop, afrobeat, amapiano, and soca tunes to enjoy under the summer sun.

The festival boasts over 70 artists across six stages with Trey Songz as a headliner, Fabolous, 112, and Jeremih already announced for this year's edition. Going down on the August bank holiday weekend when we’re sure to get some blissful sunshine, we’d argue it’s one of the best ways to spend the bank holiday - the genres showcased here pair with summer like salt and pepper. 

Early bird tickets go on sale on Friday 28th!
