Concerts in Manchester in October 2022

October flies. Temperatures are dropping, the rain is back with a vengeance, and we’re looking for the best places to be indoors outside of our own homes.

Luckily for you, you live Manchester where there are always many stuff that happens and according to we thought we would do a roundup of the best concerts and events of this month.

With that in mind, let’s not waste any more time, shall we?

Hit and Run vs. White Peach – Hidden (18+)

WHEN: Friday, October 14, 2022, from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. (last entry 1 a.m.)

As far as we are concerned, the weekend starts at 5pm on Friday and if you are looking for late night plans after the first pint, a night of drums, basstechno and more until 4am should do the trick.

If you fancy seeing two record labels duel, DJs like ADHD and Thys making their Manchester debuts and a host of other artists taking over two full venues, this one’s for you.

Defective – Depot Mayfield (18+)

Now, if you’re not one for fancy dress parties or going out on the town, but still want to enjoy Halloween 2022, this special screening of the horror classic Nosferatus (aka the original vampire) should be right up your street.

Presented at the Carlton Club in Whalley Range, Bram Stoker’s German Expressionist film adaptation Dracula will be scored live by Manchester day club Supernature’s Chris Massey and Richie V. Even better, tickets include a free vegan meal and a free “dark beer.” Tidy.
