August Bank Holiday at Cottonopolis at Cottonopolis, Manchester, 25–28 August 2017, free entry

Cottonopolis are finishing off August with a weekend full of events. Friday sees the Tropadelica Summer Beer Festival Closing Party, giving a well-deserved send off to the successful summer menu. Expect free tastings of exclusive lines and the best of their brews, plus giveaways and the chance for one lucky person to win a huge beer hamper. Hip Hop Hooray! takes over on Sunday, with an all-dayer dedicated to – you guessed it – hip hop.

The weekend is seen off in style with Bottomless Bank Holiday Monday featuring the much-loved Eastern Bloc Records DJs. Crate-diggers will be in heaven as you’ll be able to browse through some of the shops hand picked crates of Funk, Soul, Jazz, Hiphop, Disco, Broken Beat, Afro, Latin, Reggae, House and much more while these master selectors rock the decks in an-all-day-all-vinyl session.
