Renowned suburban club night Sticky Heat is partnering with StreamGM for a rave in Cheetham Hill, to be live-streamed across the globe.
The massive party will celebrate Sticky’s big ‘3’ at The Yard, a music and creative venue on Bent Street.
Part of the night will be live-streamed, as episode four of StreamGM’s ongoing MainRoom series – you can join in the party below with our stream on The Manc website.
The digital clubbing series platforms emerging DJ talent and underground club nights across Manchester, but reaches an audience across the world, taking our globally-renowned nightlife scene to far-flung cities and towns.
The MainRoom streams are used as soundtracks to house parties, or rewatched for research into future nights out in the city.
Previous partnerships have included FAC51 The Hacienda, Supernature Disco, Not Bad for a Girl and Bombard Groove, with loads more ‘off piste’ raves to be announced in the coming weeks.
This weekend’s Sticky Heat rave will be headlined by Belgian DJ duo The Glimmers, supported by residents Muddy Feet, Massey and Marco Giannini.
Sticky Heat parties focus on bringing over artists who have either not played in Manchester before, or haven’t visited the city for a long time, taking over venues like The Carlton Club, Gorilla, YES and their new home The Yard.
And if you do miss out on tickets, you can always join the MainRoom broadcast below instead, which will go live between 10pm and 1am on Saturday 4 February.
MainRoom episode 4 with Sticky Heat
MainRoom producer Laura Graham said: “We are made up to be partnering with Sticky Heat one of THE best, musically minded nights out in Greater Manchester.
“MainRoom is all about shining a spotlight on brilliant & talented DJs, and eclectic and inclusive events in the region that people outside of the M60 may not be so familiar with, and Sticky Heat more than fits the bill.
“The Yard is also a real gem of a venue, and the team are super excited to be broadcasting from such a unique space in the heart of Cheetham Hill.”
Sticky Heat’s music policy is as eclectic as their booking policy, with artists encouraged to play with no musical boundaries, and to go in whatever direction they choose to do so. Added with a loyal community who are as musically open minded as they are welcoming.
Sticky Heat co-founder and resident spinner Marco Giannini said: “Sticky Heat is incredibly excited to be collaborating with Stream GM for our 3rd birthday and housewarming party at The Yard in February.
“The Yard is such a special and culturally significant venue for Manchester, and fully accessible for wheelchair users, which is important for Sticky Heat as we always try and make our events as inclusive as possible.
“We have always taken pride in putting together well thought out and planned lineups for our parties, so to bring The Glimmers back to Manchester (and we think maybe even the UK), for the first time since 2015 is quite a coup.”
He continued: “Couple this with our community who really are the backbone of our parties, our new home at The Yard and our trio of residents Muddy Feet, Massey & Marco Giannini, this promises to be a really exciting live stream for those tuning in at home and in different countries. You’ll really get to see what makes this night so special.
“You can tell the second you walk into Sticky Heat that it’s just a really strong community.”
StreamGM have recently partnered with digital wallet app Folio, to ensure their users never miss their live broadcasts, with benefits including: exclusive content, priority guest list at in person events and ticket notifications.

Justin Timberlake announces massive Manchester gig on European tour
Justin Timberlake has finally announced European shows on his massive The Forget Tomorrow World Tour, including a night here in Manchester.
The so-called prince of pop has been behind some of the biggest chart-toppers of a generation, including SexyBack, Mirrors, and Trolls hit Can’t Stop The Feeling.
Justin Timberlake’s career spans decades, first as a member of boyband NSYNC, then as a hugely successful solo performer.
He’s also got several acting credits to his name, in films like The Social Network, Friends with Benefits, and In Time (objectively, not a good film).
Timberlake has told more than 63 million singles globally as a solo artist and has 10 Grammy Awards on his shelf.
And now for the next chapter of his illustrious career he’s back on the live stage, with a huge arena world tour already announced.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of a European leg, which has arrived this morning and includes stops in Poland, Germany, the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and France.
Justin Timberlake will be in Manchester at the brand-new Co-op Live arena in August this year.
The Forget Tomorrow World Tour now has 67 shows, with more than 550,000 tickets already sold in the U.S.
The news comes ahead of the release of new album Everything I Thought It Was, which will be released on 15 March, and new single Drown.
Tickets for Justin Timberlake’s show in Manchester will go on sale on Friday 1 March at 10am.

Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium announce joint Manchester gig at Co-op Live
Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium have just announced a huge joint arena tour, including a date in Manchester.
Both bands will be performing at the Co-op Live arena as part of The Poisoned Ascendancy UK Tour in 2025.
They’ll be playing their respective albums in full to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck said: “I honestly can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the release of The Poison, and what an incredible 20 years it’s been.
“I feel so proud of what we’ve achieved as a band in the last two decades and it all started with that debut album.
“The Poison is such an important part of our lives musically and personally and we know the massive impact it had on the metal world on a global level.
“This tour will be made even more special as our brothers in Trivium are also joining us on the road to celebrate and play in its entirety their stunning album Ascendancy.”
Trivium frontman Matt Heafy said: “Bullet For My Valentine’s The Poison and Trivium’s Ascendancy are two records whose influence can be heard to this day – in the DNA of modern metal.
“It’s incredible to think of the impact the albums had when they came out in 2005. They were both like bolts of lightning.
“Both bands grew up independently of each other in different countries and separately from any movement or scene but both shared a common love of melodic heavy metal at the core; and both had similar meteoric rises right out of the gate.
“Trivium and BFMV were in such whirlwinds when our respective albums came out that we each never truly got to play together or sit back and celebrate during the maelstrom of constant touring, recording and globetrotting.
“But that’s what this anniversary tour is. It’s a celebration by the bands to the fans of an important era, and most importantly it’s an invitation to fans come and have an epic night with us and sing and rage and celebrate the awesome power of the music.”
“This is going to be the metal tour of 2025,” concludes Tuck. “Bullet For My Valentine and Trivium The Poisoned Ascendancy World Tour 2025. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of both albums and playing them in their entirety.
“Get excited people, it’s going to be special and we can’t wait to celebrate with you all.”
Bulley For My Valentine and Trivium – the Poisoned Ascendency Tour, will be at the Co-op Live on 30 January 2025.
The tour will also visit Cardiff, Glasgow, Birmingham, and London.
