Herbal Tea Party was Manchester’s first techno night mixing up DJs and live acts. Never one for being purist the night mixed up techno, trance, minimal, house, acid, dub, electro and ambient grooves.
It ran from 1993 – 1997 attracting some of the best DJs and Live acts on the scene. Thanks to the clubbers who went there it was often listed as club / gig of the week in numerous magazines and became a real favourite with the DJs and bands that played there. It was the club Orbital chose to warm up for their Glastonbury headline slot and that Andrew Weatherall chose to play one of the few live dates his band Sabres of Paradise played.
As well as the regular Thursday nights at the New Ardri in Hulme, the Herbal also held all nighters at Rock World getting in 1500 clubbers on a Wednesday night! Manchester Apollo, Sankeys and Jabez Clegg. There were also Herbals in Liverpool and Herbal tours to other club nights from Aberdeen to London such as Club UK and Eurobeat 2000.
