towards the end of last year there was a minor panic when rumours flew around about the uncertain future of In The City, one of the country's biggest showcase festivals. thankfully the 3 day event returns this year wooo. based in Manchester, covering large parts of the city centre, In The City is host to an impossible number of brand new bands. i was lucky enough to go last year and had a blast; Egyptian Hip Hop, Everything Everything and Esben & The Witch were particular highlights.
this year ITC has such an insaaaaane line-up, for £30 it's pretty much the bargain of the year. i was allowed to help pick out some bands to play so i'll probably do a special 'DON'T MISS' feature right before the 13th rolls around. but who could say no to:
HEALTH, Mount Kimbie, No Age, Egyptian Hip Hop, Monarchy, White Ring, Oberhofer, D/R/U/G/S, Factory Floor, Kisses, Breton, Beaty Heart, Japayork, Clock Opera.. i could go on or you could salivate over the listing page here.
plus i'm totally DJing at some point.
ITC runs 13th - 15th October. tickets are available here.
