Friday 2nd February 2024
7.00pm - 12.00am
Mayors Steve Rotheram and Andy Burnham will be taking to the decks on Friday 2 February 2024 at Camp and Furnace, as the Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester go head-to-head in a giant charity battle, in aid of homelessness.
Each Mayor will invite special guests to the decks to play a few tracks including Liverpool’s Jamie Webster, DJ and actor Craig Charles, singers Rebecca Ferguson and Peter Hooton alongside LFC and England Rapper John Barnesand EFC legend Peter Reid. Backing Manchester will be Blossoms, former Corrie actress Sally Lindsay, M-People’s Heather Small, comedian Stephen Bailey, BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Nihal Arthanayake and presenter Matt White.
The charity event will be somewhat of a round three re-match for the pair, with their first clash taking place online during the pandemic and a follow-up in person event in Manchester last December, which raised over £25,000 and (incredibly) won ‘Leading Live Event of the Year’ at the 2023 This is Manchester Awards.
Proceeds from the night will be distributed between the Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester charities, with all funds supporting initiatives to tackle homelessness and end the need for rough sleeping.
DJ Battle: 8pm
