Some of the most exciting bands on the Manchester scene will be playing live on the night. Catch ist ist, Louie Louie, Carnival Club and Livvo from 7.45pm. Tim Burgess' DJ set will be on at 11pm – as a DJ he’s toured with The Chemical Brothers and has played everywhere from LA to Glastonbury. His sets are loaded with top tunes from start to finish to keep everyone dancing till late.

Live bands will perform once a month at CTRL Live. And every three weeks, CTRL will host resident DJ Ryan Cormac (UK Boredom Control / Cupids) who'll play the best indie-rock-alt music from 10pm until the early hours of the morning.

CTRL offers Manchester night scene-goers something a little different. Featuring live bands, huge guest DJs from touring bands, and the venue’s resident DJ, the night takes you from a relaxed early evening bar vibe to a full-blown nightclub.

CTRL has already played host to DJ sets from the likes of Gary Powell of The Libertines, Bombay Bicycle Club, and The Blossoms, whose debut reached number one in the album charts this summer.
