Kaluki 17th Birthday
When: Friday 30th - Saturday 31st December 2022
Where: Depot Mayfield in Manchester
In partnership with Manchester-based event series, The Warehouse Project, Kaluki will mark its 17th year in the industry on the eve of New Year's Eve, delivering a 9-hour party at the colossal Depot Mayfield warehouse.
Founded back in 2006, in the depths of Sankey's dark and dingy basement floor, Kaluki has gone on to surpass, some might say, the many achievements of its now-defunct and legendary birthplace. Hosting stages at major summertime events the likes of Parklife Festival and LooseFest, as well as launching its own record label with releases courtesy of icons such as Solardo, Richy Ahmed, wAFF and Patrick Topping, Kaluki has rightly become a name synonymous with quality electronic music and events in the UK.
Bringing the birthday party vibes this December, the brand will welcome an exhaustive list of DJs and producers, most of whom have played a crucial role in making Kaluki the brand it is today - from Alan Fitzpatrick, Dennis Cruz, Alisha and Manda Moor to headliner Joseph Capriati.
