Meat Free – Pay What You Want rave

2015 May 29

Meat Free is Techno / House  (and occasionally Disco) club night in Manchester run by a collective of girls, two of whom happen to be friends of mine. The concept is simple, to make banging parties with no attitude, I’ve been to one, I can fully vouch for it. ‘We believe in a Berlin manifesto, leave high heels and troubles at the door, you came in here to dance’  The girls behind Meat Free are also rather fine DJ’s themselves, usually stepping up to the decks for warm-up sets at their own nights, followed by a plethora of hugely high calbre DJ’s, the likes of Ben Sims, Xosar, Legowelt and Tama Sumo. For their parties that don’t feature such high profile DJ’s, they came up with a concept which goes back to the original Manchester rave roots and gives back to the clubbing community and created a ‘Pay What You Want’ party, the idea is simple, you come, you party and you pay in accordance to how much you enjoyed yourself. We think it’s a great idea and the guys at BBC raw do too, they’ve created opportunities and been giving a platform for young people from socially diverse and BME backgrounds, to create and share their short films, Amber Haque created this short, on Meat Free’s ‘Pay What you Want Parties’

The next Meat Free Pay What You Want Party is at Joshua Brooks on June 19th. More details HERE
