Promotion crew Animal Crossing is set to debut a brand new festival in Manchester. Summer Of Love will take place at an abandoned Manchester building over the Bank Holiday weekend August 21st-22nd.
Confirmed headliners include Raresh, Petre Inspirescu and Rhadoo, who will play together under the [A:RPIA:R] alias. Out-of-town performers include Dyed Soundorom, Onur Ozer, Priku, Cristi Cons B2B Vlad Caia, and Shonky B2B Traumer, while local acts include Annie Errez, Bobby O’Donnell, Josh Baker and Ethel. The event will run from 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM each of the two days.
“This is our moment to reunite, rejoice and celebrate the reopening of the world we love and have missed so dearly,” a spokesperson for Animal Crossing said. “The Summer Of Love festival represents our freedom, our connection, our artistic expression in an environment that has been created bespoke for the two-day music, arts and mindful experience.”
In addition to the musical acts, a record fair will be hosted by Vinyl Pimp and Basement Wax. Other attractions include a wellness hut, multiple caterers in a food market, and a Trommel Selects hut.
Tickets for Summer Of Love Festival are on sale now, and can be found at Animal Crossing’s website.
