Manchester’s very own Grime King of the North Bugzy Malone, is one of the artists responsible for giving Manchester a voice in an otherwise London dominated scene. With his debut album B. Inspired out now, Bugzy brought Manchester a double hit of his trademark, heavyweight sound for the ultimate homecoming as part of Manchester International Festival and The Warehouse Project Special Edition.
A collaboration between MIF and WHP, curated with BBC Radio 6 Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs, Special Edition was a series of unique nights in Manchester’s immense and atmospheric Mayfield, a former railway station in Manchester, with lighting designer Stuart Bailes.
Special Edition was part of a series of pre-Factory events, paving the way for the opening of The Factory, a new major arts space being developed in the heart of the city that will be operated by MIF.
