Moonrise Winter Warmer
Wednesday 18th December  

Tickets: £3/ £5


Moonrise is back for our first dance of this academic year, returning to our favourite venue, Yellow Arch Studios, with a two room ‘Moonrise Winter Warmer’ to once again raise money and awareness for Irise.

For this edition we’ve got some serious talent from our long-standing friends and collaborators Pretty Pretty Good as well as from GRL., La Rumba, Mango Disco and UK Mondo Radio. If that wasn’t enough for you then Peachy UK will also be hosting the Café area for us this time around.


In the main Venue space you can expect an eclectic mix of groovy, electronic and percussive latin, afro-beat and globally-inspired rhythms, along with the usual Moonrise funk and disco classics from this dreamy lineup of talented local DJs (A-Z)…

Amina (GRL.)
Colecta (UK Mondo Radio)
Empress (Mango Disco)
Román Rocha (La Rumba)
Smorsli (Pretty Pretty Good)

+ Sheffield University Samba Band will again be bringing the energy with another one of their famous live performances!

In the intimate Café area Peachy UK will be taking control of proceedings and adding a more bass focussed twist. They’ll be lending us their razor-sharp expertise on only the very best of dubstep, grime and UK funky with the following all-star lineup (A-Z)…

Aztek b2b Taiko (Dank ‘N’ Dirty Dubz / White Peach Records)
CLOUWDS b2b LUNAR b2b Tino (PyroRadio)


Entry is once again a bargain, with Early Bird tickets available now for just £3 and Standard release costing just £5 once those are gone:

It’s a prime date too, just before the festive break and right before the university semester ends, so we’re expecting another sellout. We’ll only have tickets on the door if we don’t sell out in advance, and they will cost £7. Don’t sleep!


As always with Moonrise, 100% of proceeds go direct to Irise International, our brilliant charity which does loads of really incredible work with women and girls in the UK and in East Africa. You can find out more about the organisation here:

Just £5 (the price of a ticket) helps Irise to reach one girl and to help provide her with the means to manage her period safely and hygienically, ensuring she doesn’t miss out on school; an essential step in breaking the cycle of poverty!
