Room 1: Partisan All Day Party #4!

We are very excited to bring our special All Day Party to the Partisan First Birthday. The highlight of parties at Partisan in our inaugural year, the All Day Party is a community celebration for all lovers of the dancefloor.

Top local DJs provide the groove our disco ball and old-school rotary slide projectors make it beautiful table tennis and the video games sofa corner entertain whilst we provide delicious specials for food and drink for your indulgence.

With extra special surprise birthday celebrations…


Kiss Me Again DJs
Be it fate or divine planning, Matt, Dave and Antoin’s incredible LGBT+ party always seems to fall on the same night as Partisan All Day parties – the perfect place to enjoy the only crowd in Manchester as special as our Day Party regulars. Perhaps the funnest night in the city, the KMA DJs often go toe-to-toe and back-to-back with their amazing bookings – Midland, Call Super & Ben UFO, and Homelectric legends Kath McDermott & Philippa Jarman. Expect 2 step garage, house heaters, bassweight and queer classics. Boiler Room set 2018 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AerXz6IRYF8

Neil Diablo – https://soundcloud.com/neildiablo
Head honcho at Manchester’s ‘El Diablo’s Social Club’ since 2003 and label boss at ‘To Rack & Ruin’ edit imprint & ‘El Diablo’s Social Club Recordings’ Neil is a busy man! His signature blend of leftfield Disco, House, Techno, Balearic and everything in between has earned him an unshakable reputation with those in the know as a crowd-loving crate-digger who never fails to set it off.

LUCY IRONMONGER – https://soundcloud.com/lucyironmonger
As a Meat Free resident, just this year, Lucy has booked and supported the likes of Dr Rubinstein and Donato Dozzy(!!). As a Partisan member and regular, Lucy knows the Partisan crowd and how to tickle our buttons. After a dream of a warm up set for our party with Lakuti earlier this year, Lucy is a specialist in making crowds get loose, let go and get together.

GLEN CUTWERK (LIVE) https://soundcloud.com/cutwerk
Glen is a creative genius. Whether or not you’ve seen him DJ (let alone bring out his studio live set!), you have definitely seen Glen’s beautiful posters. Whether it be for his own Heads Up party, or for Partisan’s own parties with Lakuti and Objekt b2b Call Super, Glen has a deep understanding of the beauty of dance music culture, and we are incredibly excited to present his live set – a crystallisation of all his creative energy into raw groove. From boogie to funk to disco to house to techno – a Glen Cutwerk live set can go wherever the flow of the party takes it. *Not to be missed!!*
