This Summer, Pangaea Festival is excited to present a celebration of life, bringing together sound, energy and creativity, from the most exciting and colourful carnivals! Party with passion and spirit at our biggest and best party ever; join us as we transform the Students’ Union with illustrious, elaborate installations and décor into a tropical paradise to delight your senses. Enjoy this collective celebration of the world’s most beautiful carnivals– discover lush splendour, dazzling delights and all-round good vibes, with only the fruitiest of cocktails in your hand.

For this uniquely Manchester all-night party suspend your disbelief, prepare yourself to celebrate life and come with a first-class attitude - as you always do. It’s the last one of the year and it might be your last one ever; make the most of it and don’t miss out on this special occasion of revelry. Join 7,000 fellow students and let music will take you on a journey through house, techno, grime, disco, funky, afrobeat, hip hop, bashment, reggae, dubstep, latin, jungle, bass, indie, pop and more to explore 15 rooms of fun throughout the Students’ Union and Manchester Academy venues.

June’s festival is formed out of the pixelated fun of our biggest Winter Pangaea yet. January’s LEVEL 10 saw artists like Katy B, Mount Kimbie, Swim Deep, Congo Natty, Move D, Eton Messy, Champion and Dub Phizix keeping you dancing as you conquered many terrains and obstacles in some of the most outrageous costumes we’ve yet seen.

Well now the sun is shining and summer is nearly here, so get on your finest garms and begin in it style because… it’s Carnival time!
