If anyone can define a decade in 26 songs, it’s Rob da Bank, whose mischievous eclecticism has made him one of Britain’s best-loved DJs. So that’s what MIF asked him to do… Over four nights, Rob brought us the A-Z of Manchester – starting with the ’80s and continuing through different decades, covering the whole alphabet, alongside visuals mixed live from the curated collection of legendary local photographer Kevin Cummins.


Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
