The nights for this autumn are coming in thick and fast now – not to mention Freshers Week just around the corner. Check out our recommendations for the hottest parties coming up.

ALLTRAX x AMF: Krysko | The Eagle Inn | Sat 9 Sep | £9.20

All My Friends and ALLTRAX team up for a night at their regular haunt the Eagle Inn, this time inviting Manchester’s ever-present, Krysko for a headline set of cutting-edge house and techno. Krysko earned his stripes as a resident at Sankeys back in the day, picking up two Essential Mixes along the way, before holding it down for WHP since the very start. They say a good warm-up DJ can play any time of the night, so you can count on ‘DJ Radiator’ to bring the heat into the early hours.

19 Collier St, Salford M3 7DW
Hit & Run: Monty b2b Visages b2b Cesco x SP:MC | Hidden | Mon 18 Sep | £4.33

For those new to Manchester, Hit & Run is an institution, over 16 years of parties in the city celebrating all things bass have made them a highlight of every season. Drum’n’bass, grime, garage, dubstep, you name it, they’ve got it covered. They kick off their autumn with a massive Monday night shindig across all 3 floors of Hidden, with the 1985 Music trio taking the helm for a night of tear-out jungle.

17 DownTex Mill, Mary Street, M3 1DZ
Nabihah Iqbal + Sijya | YES | Fri 22 Sept | £18.50

Nabihah Iqbal has stormed along through so many styles over her career, from the powerful electronics of her Throwing Shade alias, to this year’s Dreamer album on Ninja Tune, which glowed with shiny guitars, enveloping pads and pulsing drum machines. Its spoken word lyrics are often rhythmic, making the tunes as anthemic as anything around right now. Support comes from New Delhi-based, Sijya, whose ambient pop explorations have brought her to the UK for a tour which has included the Tate Modern, NTS Radio and the Bristol Trinity Centre.

38 Charles Street Manchester, M1 7BD, United Kingdom
Make Me Feel | New Century | Sat 9 Sept | £13.45

Northern Quarter hang-out, Feel Good Club is known for being the most welcoming space in Manchester, priding itself on its kindness and friendliness, delivered through great coffee and a relaxing place to work. They delve into the world of nightlife for the first time for a party with a purpose at New Century. 15% of all ticket sales go to MindOut Charity, making this lineup of house, disco and more an exciting space for all do-gooders in the city. There are no headliners, with locals Pops Roberts and Kiss Me Again playing alongside London’s Shy One and Dubai’s Megatronic.

Mayes St, M60 4ES
WHP x Eat Your Own Ears | Warehouse Project | Sat 18 Nov | £49.50

The annual WHP when Four Tet plays is always highlight of the season, and this year is no different. Skrillex tops the bill, while Four Tet is listed beside none other than Peggy Gou, which is an exciting pairing, to say the least. Headlining the Concourse is SHERELLE and VTSS, two DJs who draw a crowd more than anyone at the moment. The Archive sees Hessle Audio’s Pangaea spinning alongside UGK royalty Champion and fire-starting selector, OK Williams.
