Mad Ferret was started last year by a bunch of ramshackle students, recent graduates and dropouts and saw nearly 6000 people descend on Platt Fields Park for a gloriously sun kissed Wednesday afternoon.

The miracle that it actually happened was in no small way due to the huge efforts of the whole community. Without whom, it would not have happened. So to you we owe a massive thank you.


This year’s Mad Ferret Dance Tent 1 will be hosted by dance music heavyweights CHEW THE FAT! (www.thefatclub.com) and METROPOLIS (www.metropolisuk.com). More details to follow.

▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀▀

DJs from Manchester’s notorious underground screen make a rare daylight appearance. Details are to be confirmed but expect big things from all those nights you go to week in week out but for some unknown reason, you can barely remember.
Line up coming soon…

THE CARRIBEAN UMBRELLA COLLECTIVE

Forgoing a collection of umbrellas and instead finding home beneath a more traditional tent, The Carribean Umbrella Collective brings with it a chilled vibe. Live art, live music and a cafe for tea time treats. Don’t expect Rihanna.
Line up coming soon…
