The winter instalment of Pangaea has been cancelled because of ongoing building works in and around the Students’ Union building.
The Students’ Union Activities Officer, Kitty Bartlett, said that these building works meant that January’s Pangaea had to be cancelled on “health and safety” grounds.
She continued to say that, “something will be happening in January” to take its place but that students will have to “watch this space to find out what it is!”
Sources have suggested to The Mancunion that the event to take its place will likely be another instalment of the Union’s popular new event, Club Tropicana.
Wiley headlined Pangaea during Welcome Week in September 2017. He was joined by lots of independent DJs and the University of Manchester’s very own Fuse FM.
Students have told The Mancunion that on the whole they’re not fussed about the cancellation, due to a decline in quality of the event over the last couple of years, with Masters student Lydia Harford saying that she “wouldn’t care” if it got cancelled because “the newer ones haven’t been that good.”
Third year Economics and Politics student George Lean, said that whilst the he liked the venue (when it’s not covered in construction), there was an issue with the “trafficking of people” through the event.
Becky Cox, a third year English Literature student said she’d been three times but she doesn’t care about the cancellation. Despite the opportunity to get glittered up, “it’s expensive, the line-ups haven’t been amazing recently, and you can go somewhere else for much cheaper and have a good night.”
Third year Mathematics student Chris Webster had also been three times but complained that “we tend to spend most of the night loosing and searching for our friends. I wouldn’t care if it ended. The line-up isn’t very good, it’s too expensive…and there’s not enough techno.”
