No Half Steppin’ 2: The Steppening
March 22 @ 11:00 am - March 23 @ 4:00 am
No Half Steppin’ is back! Coming at you from the mean streets of Manchester we are back bigger and better for our first event of the new year.
For those of you that don’t know No Half Steppin’ is a new night in Manchester showcasing only the finest old school and underground hip hop from all around the world but also most importantly from right here in the 0161.
On the night we will have DJ’s spinning only the juiciest beats but not only that, we will have a live band playing with local MC’s.
The event takes place at Aatma (behind Hula, above Peer Hat) on the 22nd of March and it’s only £5 entry!
