Repercussion Festival at Mayfield Depot, Manchester, 10 September 2022, from £49.50 - Book now

Presented by The Warehouse Project, Keep It Unreal and Boiler Room, Repercussion Festival returns to Depot Mayfield this September, with an eclectic mix of electronic music from around the world.

The inner-city festival bills itself as “a day to night party of ground-breaking music and art in all its forms”, and takes up the full expanse of Depot Mayfield. It also spills into the adjacent Star & Garter with Boiler Room, and onto the streets with a pop up stage curated by Manchester’s own Mr Scruff. We’re talking six stages, and nearly 10 times the amount of artists; they’re not messing around, are they?

The line-up is suitably huge, too. Leading the pack is the mercurially talented Jamie xx, whose joyous new single ‘Let’s Do It Again’ sees the producer doing what he does best: delivering atmospheric floor-fillers. He’s tailed by the increasingly brilliant rapper Little Simz, whose 2021 album Sometimes I Might Be Introvert featured on pretty much every end-of-year list going. BRIT Award-winning Fred Again will be serving up emotive electro pop bangers, while the legendary Jeff Mills/Underground Resistance will be bringing industrial-leaning techno straight from Detroit.

There are loads of highlights a little lower down on the line-up, too – namely Goldie, Palm Trax, Call Super, Blinker & Moses, Leon Vynehall, Giles Peterson and Nightmares on Wax. There’s also a nice little curveball in the form of post-punk funk pioneers, A Certain Ratio.
