It's Festival Time!

Blacka Hire is proud to be part of a fortnight of events to bring Manchester’s rich cultural life to the world’s attention.


Manchester International Festival brings a host of arts events to the city’s streets and theatres.


At the heart of the biannual event is the Festival Square and Pavilion Theatre, which takes over Albert Square during the fortnight of celebrations.


For the third year running, Blacka Hire provided equipment to make the magic happen at three diverse shows, sending CD mixers, DJ monitors and DJ stand for use throughout the event.


Friday July 5 saw drag divas Drunk at Vogue present their hugely entertaining House of Popular Disco, showcasing vintage and future club classics mixed with the unique brand of glittery sing-along shows the troupe is famous for.


Over four nights, DJ Rob Da Bank brought the A-Z of Manchester to crowds in the square, telling the history of Manc music from 80s to the present day in 26 songs, backed by visuals from legendary rock photographer Kevin Cummins.


There’s still plenty to look forward to.  Marking the end of the festival on July 20 will be writer, broadcaster and legendary Hacienda DJ Dave Haslam, who invites guests Il Bosco and MC Kwasi to join him for the fantastic Yellow night.
