Joining him are Glitterbox’s Melvo Baptiste, Pete Bromley and Lee Fredericks doing a special B2B set, and finally BCD residents Matt Erst, Ludo Frost, and Carl Brown complete the lineup.

Barton LIVE: JLS


When: Saturday 14th September 2024

Where: Barton Aerodrome in Manchester

Maybe pop-rockers McFly were never your thing. Maybe you were much more enchanted by the multi-award-winning boy band JLS…

JLS is the next artist coming to Manchester as part of Barton LIVE, bringing some incredible R&B-infused pop to an open-air arena set against the backdrop of Barton Airport's runway. 

With so many huge tracks like ‘Everybody In Love’, ‘Beat Again’, ‘She Makes Me Wanna’, ‘One Shot’, ‘Eyes Wide Shut’, ‘The Club Is Alive’, and more, we suspect that if you attend this event, you’ll be leaving with no voice from singing from start to finish. But it’d definitely be worth it.

When: Sunday 15th September 2024

Where: Barton Aerodrome in Manchester

UB40 featuring Ali Campbell lands at Barton Aerodrome next to close out the summer with the most sunny genre of music: reggae.

Special guest Bitty McLean takes to the stage first to get the crowd all warmed up before the band takes to the stage. Then, performing those sweet melodies we know and love, the band brings laid-back, summery tunes such as ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘Kingston Town’, ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’, ‘One In Ten’, and more.

Synonymous with reggae and with timeless, soulful tracks, it's sure to be one of the best reggae events this year.
