Eastern Bloc Records was established in 1985 and quickly became a cultural icon and played an integral part within the Manchester music scene. Recently expending to a bar, cafe and events space where every weekend they host local DJs, records labels and guests, firmly cementing its place as a manchester music institution . This year for SFTOC , Eastern Bloc will be taking over the Deli Lama with the residents Means&3rd, Kerrie, Akaram & Black Eyes bringing you 8 hours of music from across the spectrum, ambient, hip hop, funk, jazz, world to disco and house.
In the past, the Deli Lama has hosted Salford Zine Library among many other stages, and we’re super excited to see what Eastern Bloc will do with the space – as part of the Bexley Square hub, it should act as a perfect place to vibe out throughout April 30th, and we’re overjoyed to have one of our favourite institutions involved in the festival.
Here’s a snapshot of what to expect from their recent Reform Radio show:
