Not only have we scoped out some free FutureEverything events, there’s also a market and live music to lap up this weekend. SWEET.
Now celebrating its 20th year, 2015’s FutureEverything takes place this week with a four-day calendar of digital culture events. It’s also got some great freebies as part of this, including Danny L Harle (pictured), a spearhead of controversial label PC Music, and High Bank DJs on Friday. The Virtualife Departure Lounge is also a good shout, with three nights of music and visuals from Hong Kong Express, IMMUNE//, Pyravid and Shima33 and presented by a virtual entity known mysteriously as The Hostess.
RNCM Concourse, 124 Oxford Road, M13 9RD, FREE, Virtualife Departure Lounge: Thu 26 Feb – Sat 28 Feb, 6 – 10pm / Danny L Harle: Fri 27 Feb, 10.30pm – 1.30am
