Festival Closing party

New Orleans meets 90s club classics… it’s like a rave funeral without the body. In New Orleans, they celebrate in style. Second Lining is a quintessential art form: following the band to enjoy music, marching and dancing, twirling parasols and waving handkerchiefs.

If you’re lucky enough to be caught up in the commotion, you’re part of the Second Line. The band are revolutionary genre-bashers who knock traditional brass band business sideways, opting for upbeat dance tracks over traditional hymns, paying homage to the die hard days of the legendary Mr Tony Wilson and his famous Hacienda club.

They’re an anarchic extravaganza, bursting with colour and sound, rallying impromptu raves and rousing audiences young and old into a joyful frenzy.
