Kicking off at sunset,
DJ Tristan Bain played disco and boogie tunes to a mature crowd (and those seeking refuge from the usual David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia playlist) during his set last Thursday. A further 80 partygoers arrived in style by boat just before 11pm, as Kristian Valdini picked up the tempo with soulful and Latin house. The venue was packed by the time headliner Conan Manchester moved in to play vocal house at midnight, but it was during Valdini’s second set of the night that the heavens opened and, to the surprise of many, the dancefloor filled up even more, with revellers eager to soak up the first shower of the season. Some had better moves than others, with one gent in particular entertaining the crowd with his efforts.
