Our second Culture Matters panel event looks at ‘Nightlife’, the corner of the cultural landscape sorely missed for over a year – our clubs, events and festivals, responsible for uniting selectors and sounds with party goers across the country.
The State of the Arts enlisted several figures from across the North’s nightlife culture to discuss how the industry will recover from lockdown…
DJ Paulette - a cultural icon of Manchester whose career has taken her from the Hacienda to Paris to the biggest festival line ups of 2021.
Harkirit Boparai - based in York, Harkirit manages The Crescent Community Venue and programmes the Basement Jazz Club, and is North-East coordinator for the Music Venue Trust.
Gemma Krysko - director of We Are Indigo and part of the team behind Escape to Freight Island, she also helped with the UK government's pilot club event in Liverpool.
Anton Stevens - an organiser for the most popular Manchester nightclub, Hidden.
