A “360° Disco” Is Going Down In One of Manchester’s Most Historic Cathedrals

The bar for post-pandemic live music experiences has never been higher.

On February 10th, an "epic electronic disco" will take place at the Manchester Cathedral, one of the most historic chapels in England. The building was originally founded in 1421 as a parish church before becoming a cathedral over 400 years later in 1847, according to The Journal of Ecclesiastical History.

Produced by JBM Music, the unique show is part of 360 Beats and Fever's "360°" series, which offers "clubbing experiences in exceptional locations such as cathedrals, concord planes, landmarks and rooftops while the DJ plays in the centre of the room."
