Love For The Streets is set to return this autumn with a day of festivities at popular nightclub Hidden. ‘Hidden Behind the Headlines’ will see Gorgon Sound, Kornél Kovács and dozens more play across three rooms in the popular venue.
The festival will mark the launch of the latest Love For The Streets campaign, ‘Hidden Homelessness’. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the extent to which homelessness goes beyond the streets themselves. Sofa-surfing families, temporary housing residencies, and taking shelter in short-term accommodation makes up 64% of homelessness.
This will be Love For The Streets’ biggest event yet, with the all-day party bringing together a wealth of live entertainment and activities. The organisation continues its tendency to put music and art at the forefront of its events. This time food, fashion stalls, and creative workshops will also be available for attendees to explore.
The Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) night tsar, Sacha Lord, has dubbed the event a “fantastic achievement” on social media. Emily Watts, chair of Big Change MCR, a member group of Manchester Homelessness Charter, stated her gratitude for the “professionally-done” events Love for the Streets host and their work to help raise money for over 30 charities.
Aside from club nights, previous Love for the Streets events have included talks and even a series of art workshops at The Whitworth. Love for the Streets is a collective of Manchester-based students, ex-students, club promoters, and artists.
‘Hidden Behind the Headlines’ takes place on Sunday 23rd September. Early bird tickets are still on sale at £7, and will eventually rise to £12 for third and final release.
