All the biggest and best events being sold on Skiddle this September, all in one place

Skiddle Staff

Last updated: 13th Sep 2022

Festival season is all but over, and what a bloody good run it was eh? There were those amongst you two-stepping to four tet and skanking to Shy FX throughout your escape to the enchanting land of Boomtown, others of you letting your hair down to headbang to Maiden at Download, and maybe a handful of you who decided The 1975 were a good backdrop for a tent bonfire (we hope there aren't many but if social media is anything to go off its statistically pretty likely) at Reading and Leeds. Yet, whilst the time of summer debauchery is coming to a close, that doesn't mean that September has to be a month of searching through Netflix all night for something to watch... You should be searching through Skiddle for something to do instead!

But, we are aware that many don't have the time for this, so we've put together all of the best events in September 2022 being sold on Skiddle in one place.

Outdoor raves still going strong into the start of Autumn, sprawling Fi(if slightly premature) Oktober fest beer tents taking over city centres, the start of Manchester's biggest party season in the Warehouse Project - there's a bucket load of events when you're looking for what's on in September 2022, so scroll down and take a look...

Life is no dress rehearsal, protest Red Carnival, the frontrunners of this theatrical night in Liverpool, and we can't agree with them more. So, if there's no dress rehearsal, then there's nothing stopping you from getting up and out on that stage (or dancefloor for this matter) and belting out all the words from your favourite musicals. Whilst sipping on a Musical-themed cocktail, you most definitely won't stop the beat and a singalong that broadway would be proud of is bound to ensue inside The Shipping Forecast. So, warm up those vocal cords, practise your lines, and break a leg! This nights gonna be worth it.

Where: Depot (Mayfield) in Manchester

Calling all the hardcore ravers in the place, get the gun fingers primed and tickets bought for the unmissable 20th Anniversary of Metropolis at the Warehouse Project this September. With DnB heroes peppering the lineup, from Chase & Status to Andy C to Turno, it's bass heads walking dreamworld and this anniversary is bound to be a belter. 

With tickets nearly sold out for the event, there's no better time than now to secure a spot. On top of this, it's a WHP event, and we all know what that means. Top-of-the-line production, awesome light shows and a sound system primed to burst an eardrum or two, all inside the iconic Mayfield (Depot), and we can't think of a better venue for the chaos to ensue.

Krew Love Sundays: DMC, Kyle Toole, Curl FM + more 

When: Sunday 25th September 2022

Where: The Loft MCR in Manchester

Coming through the sound systems The Loft, the new 200-capacity venue off of Manchester's Oldham Road that is quickly becoming one of the hottest venues in the city, this September is Krew Loves brand new Sunday Shakedowns event. The night will see a tailored pick of the best local selectors descend on the decks and almost assuredly smash it up. 

The Animal Crossing crew who owns The Loft have built a reputation for putting on some of the city's coolest events, throwing parties in abandoned car showrooms and under derelict railway arches. But the series of nights coming to The Loft for events in September 2022 look likely to see the guerilla events the brand is known for a proper home.

Shangri-La Presents: Drumcode

When: Saturday 24th September 2022

Where: Depot in Cardiff

Whilst you will most definitely not find the mythical city of Shangri-La in the Welsh valleys, what does await you there is a fantastical night of some of the best drum code acts on the scene at the minute with Drumcode at the Depot in Cardiff. 

Held by the fabled company under the same moniker as the fictitious land, the event sees Techno legend Alan Fitzpatrick among the acts looking to inject a historic vibe into the crowd, alongside Boxia and Juilet fox among others. If you're into the delightful droning dance of drumcode then the Welsh valleys may be on the agenda this September, but tickets are low, so get on Skiddle, secure your tickets and avoid rave FOMO.

Wicked N Bad 4 - Fight Night

When: Sunday 18th September 2022

Where: Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in London

With an ace lineup of fighters, and a beef-scented atmosphere to the event (Tommy The Judge on the main card has just betted his opponent Tom Little £55,000 that he will beat him) it's going to be a rivalry fuelled amateur boxing event for the ages. Taking place at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre, the fight night has sold all of its ringside seats and with tickets to get in dwindling fast, there's no better time to watch the card don the gloves and have it out in the ring. 

So, if you want to see seven fights to the bell, with all the brutal victories that go alongside it, then Skiddle is the place to get them, so pop onto the website and secure your seat for what is bound to be THE best fight night of the month.

WHP22 - Repercussion

When: Saturday 10th September 2022

Where: Depot (Mayfield) in Manchester

Repercussion by Warehouse Project is back again in September 2022, and the lineup is so good that it may just hurt. With some of the best names in electronic, hip hop, techno, house, jungle, and drum and bass right now, donning the decks at Depot (Mayfield) across SIX different rooms. If you're going to event one WHP event this year, we think it should be this one.

The event has Warehouse Project, Boiler Room and other veteran brands behind it, so you can be certain that the 14 hours of music will have you grooving away until its 4 am curfew on Sunday morning. Plus, with Little Simz, Nia Archives, Jamie xx, Mr Scruff, Fred Again and even some special guests taking the stage, there should be little you need to be convinced to grab a ticket. Just do so quickly, it's deffo gonna sell out.

The Warped gang take to The Loft for the first time ever with some of the UK's finest selectors in the worlds of garage, bass, breaks and jungle for a 6-hour showdown at one of Manchester's most exciting spots.

The loft conversion is bound to get sweaty for this one (as they always do but doesn't it just add to the charm a bit?), and the gun fingers will undoubtedly be ablaze mid-skank. With raucous local acts like Bluetoof, Cosworth and Lily Huu taking over the sound system, it'll be impossible not to let out the inner raver. The night will be one of the best events for the bass and garage heads in Manchester this September, and we feel for you if you miss out.

Oktoberfest - Temple Arches, Leeds

When: Saturday 24th September 2022

Where: Temple Arches in Leeds

When looking for what's on in September 2022, you wouldn't be blamed for not thinking of Oktober fest.

DnB Allstars Caged: London / The Opening Party

When: Saturday 24th September 2022

Where: HERE At Outernet in London

Coming to HERE at Outernet in London, the largest live events venue to be built in the city centre since the 1940s and described as “the most advanced experiential public space in the world” (it also features 23,000 sq. ft. of floor-to-ceiling 16K screens, talk about high tech!), is Caged. The event is a bass-fuelled opening party for the brand new space and it is proving to be one of the most sought-after events in the big smoke in September 2022. 

Despite still not having any artists announced, you just know that it's going to be full of stars. The space has massive acts like Annie Mac, Alfie Templeman and Sam Ryder lined up to play, so if they're anything to go off, the bookings should be primed to make the sound system tremble. Whilst the lack of confirmed acts may scare you, this is going to be one hell of a night in a space that is bound to become a cornerstone of the London live scene.
