Come As You Are 2017 at The Refuge

Come As You Are weekender: 27-29 August 2021

Our annual  Come As You Are weekend is back this August Bank Holiday – bigger and brighter than ever before. The celebration of music, love and inclusivity will commence on Friday 27 August through to Sunday 29 August, featuring live performances from House of Ghetto, The Family Gorgeous and a collective of local DJ heroes.

The legendary weekender is an institution on the city’s party scene, synonymous with the unique togetherness that shines through the diverse and magical people that only Manchester has.

The three-day and three-night spectacular will be sound-tracked by Manchester’s finest selectors, showcasing local producers, collectives and club nights. Our line-up includes local legends DJ Paulette, Jamie Bull, BB (Supernature Disco) for all your house and disco mixes, to Refuge regulars Massey, Abigail Ward, Sprechen, Kim Lana, Lucy Ironmonger (Meat Free), Neil Diablo, Sticky Heat, Muddy Feet, Marco Giannini, Laura Jackson, High Hoops and Edit Presents. Jaegerossa, Faz & Tobie C, bringing you everything in between to keep the groove going all weekend.

Making a special appearance and bringing the good vibes, is the queer soulful social curated and hosted by DJ Mix-Stress & Deb Jump, Queer Latifah, and Studio Honey, a collective from Leeds which consist of EDIE, Reeta & LisaJane who’ll bring the best of disco and house.

Come As You Are will also see a powerful live performance from House of Ghetto, a dance and visual arts collective that grew from the UK Vogue Ball scene – as they showcase their famous vogue walk. The Family Gorgeous—one of the most famous drag families in Manchester made up of queens Cheddar Gorgeous, Anna Phylactic, Lill, TeTe Bang and Liquorice Black—host monthly club night Cha Cha Boudoir in Cruz 101.

Just a reminder that Come As You Are is not ticketed and runs on a first-come-first-serve basis – so come down early and spend the whole day and night with us! Fancy eating in the Dining Room? We recommend you book a table pronto.
