La Discothèque is hosting a marathon-length funk party on United We Stream this Saturday

The glitz-soaked, confetti-strewn, funk-dripping parties hosted by La Discotheque are some of the most popular in Manchester.

They've been sorely missed. But on Saturday, they'll be back - entering living rooms across the city via videolink.

Attending a La Discotheque event is like stepping inside a giant disco ball - and the organisers behind these kaleidoscopic celebrations have pulled out all the stop to to recreate the real thing online.

The party will be taking place all day and night on Saturday 2 May - and is set to feature live sets from Crazy P SoundSystem, Rob da Bank, Fleetmac Wood, PBR Streetgang, Lovebirds, Bad Fun, Sharples.

A special guest will also be announced soon.

La Discothèque

La Piscothèque will also be making an appearance.

If you've ever stumbled into the bathroom during one of these dazzling disco events at The Albert Hall, you'll have probably found yourself on yet another dancefloor - and it's the 'La Piscothèque' DJs who are responsible for turning the toilets into a crazy carnival.

These restroom ravers will be featuring as part of Saturday's stream - and viewers are being encouraged to send in videos of their own bathroom parties via Zoom.

More details will be announced closer to the date. You can stay in the loop by following the event on social media.

In the meantime, it might be worth digging out the disco outfit that's been left to gather dust for the past five weeks or so...

United We Stream

The La Discotheque party will be broadcasting for free from 2pm until midnight through United We Stream.

Donations are optional - but UWS are encouraging people to put their own prices on 'virtual tickets' to raise funds for the city-region’s night time economy, cultural organisations & local charities.
