Every Saturday Sankeys invites you into the worlds best club where music and dance will become tropically infused and revellers subjected to the finest underground house and techno. In control of blending the summer soundset will be some of the world’s freshest, emerging talents such as Micheal Cleis and Reboot along with a selection of the most influential, iconic and in-demand DJs on the planet including Derrick Carter, Kenny Dope and Roger Sanchez. The well-travelled Sankeys team have explored the length and breadth of Latin and South America enjoying the finest European and Ibizan parties over the years, and now ignite Manchester’s nightlife with 10 weeks of the hottest sun soaked line-ups around.
