Homobloc, the queer bloc party, has announced the full line-up for November's queer music festival in Manchester - and this one party you won't want to miss.

Homobloc posted on Instagram on Thursday (22 July) as final tickets went on sale saying: “Demand has been high and these last remaining tickets will sell out today. We can’t wait to be back in that room with no corners”

In May, Homobloc released a trailer with the caption: “Love is the message”, featuring Manchester-based performer Aaron James. James is seen dressed to the nines and giving off an IDGAF attitude while leaving (or arriving at?) a party. You can watch the brief trailer below.

"If you’re a good person who likes top-shelf music then you’re welcome to join our clan"

Homobloc recently featured as part of the Attitude, Pride at Home, in association with Klarna

Speaking to Attitude ahead of the Attitude Powerplay, supported by Swatch, DJ Will Tramp said of Homoelectric, “Your age, sexual preference, look, race, religion and gender have no bearing when it comes to this disjointed, dysfunctional meeting of anti-establishment outsiders, weirdos and dance hungry dandies.

“If you’re a good person who likes top-shelf music then you’re welcome to join our clan. A more succinct tagline could potentially be ‘Homos, heteros, lesbos, don’t knows and disko asbo’s'. Just to clarify there are never any height restrictions whatsoever.”

Homobloc will take place at Depot Mayfield in Manchester on 6 November 2021. For more info click here.
