The Going Out Podcast is back once again, returning for another round of insightful, sometimes bizarre but always amusing 'going out' conversations, with a host of your favourite musical names and renowned industry pro's.

Kicking things off properly, the first mega episode of the second series see's podcast presenters Georgia and Pippa welcome a bona fide party-throwing legend and true advocate of live music in the North of England.

Presenting the Nighttime Economy Advisor to Greater Manchester, Managing Director of UK festival Parklife and co-creator of popular club night, The Warehouse Project - Sacha Lord.


Taking the time out of his increasingly busy schedule to chat to the girls, Sacha recalls some of his many remarkable stories and experiences - from living next door to The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and somehow acquiring Morrissey's aftershave, to his first time raving in the world-famous Hacienda night club and reviving Sankey's Soap.

Given his huge involvement with Manchester's live music scene and the devastating impact of Covid-19 on live events and venues, Georgia and Pippa also took the chance to discuss Sacha’s views on particular government policies implemented throughout the pandemic and explore his plans for Parklife and WHP in 2021...
