Manchester Cathedral, Victoria St, Manchester M3 1SX
If you find yourself in Manchester this weekend, make sure to check out Norwegian disco-king Todd Terje, as he takes on Manchester Cathedral for a one-off performance, Friday 11 September.
The unique event at Manchester Cathedral is hosted by Freeze and DHP, who is all about seeking out the most intimate, quirky and stunning venues in the country. Previous gigs, with artists including Jamie XX, Gilles Peterson and Bonobo, have found place at St George’s Hall, an abondened psychiatric hospital, Anglican Cathedral, two tunnels and the iconic Bombed Out Church in Liverpool. The latter was headlined by Todd Terje last summer.
Having vowed crowds at London’s Ministry of Sound last week, Todd Terje returns with more Scandinavian disco up his sleeve. Expect to hear electro tunes such as Inspector Norse and Delorian Dynamite – but with a slightly more hollow sound. The evening’s line-up also includes All We Are, Veyu, Derek Kaye and “special guests” DJs.
If you were hoping for an all-nighter club event in the cathedral, we’re sorry to disappoint you. However, there will be a Todd Terje after party (11pm to 4am) at Manchester’s Hidden Warehouse, featuring fellow Norwegian disco dons, Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas. Not too bad.
