So, after a brief period of inactivity, we're back, to celebrate our birthdays!
Strange Daze will be celebrating a whole DECADE of indoor events, outdoor parties and a whole lot of ludicrous bonkers!
Whilst hot new talent, "Prohibition" celebrate their first birthday and a whole year of filling Manchester with the finest Electro-Swing and Ghetto Funk!!
STRANGE DAZE Room:
(Psychedelic Trance and Techno)
So, imagine the scene of our first event, over 100 parties ago...
"You're walking through a forest, and hear the beat of a sound system, growing gradually in the distance.
You try your hardest to place where it is coming from, stumbling through the darkness, guided by the sound of the music and pathways of candles and lanterns.
Eventually, after working your way through the thick forest and undergrowth, the path opens, into a large clearing.
Your eyes widen as your vision comes into focus and you see hundreds of people, dancing to the beat of the same kick-drum. In synchronicity. As one.
UV Decor hangs from the trees, flashing lights and smoke immerse your senses and you get lost in the beat, dancing through until the dawn sun, kisses the tree canopy."
Now, to celebrate the anniversary of that party we bring you our 10th Birthday extravaganza, where we'll be going back to our roots of Psychedelic Trance and Techno.

To mark their first birthday the Prohibition team are bringing back some of their favorite guests from 2013, as well as new talent, along-side a very special headliner.
In true Prohibition fashion, they will be throwing a speak easy style party set to a soundtrack of big vintage electro swing beats, dirty ghetto funk and killer techno swing.
This is Manchester's only regular electro swing night and your chance to relive the music of a by gone era with a 21st century twist!
