Yard: Open Air Club


This event has been and gone.

Yard returns this August bank holiday weekend.

A collaboration between some of the city's most established dance music institutions, Yard will bring our outdoor spaces to life fusing music and art.

The last Yard: Open Air Club was one of Motion's most ambitious events to date, the first time they had all the open-air spaces in use at one time and what a success it was.

In terms of bookings, this years line-up features some of the most respected underground names in house and techno.

Capturing the spirit of outdoor partying, art installations curated by Mr. Price will embellish Motion's excursion with the kind of hazy glamour that his Studio 89 events embody.

Yard is also proud to announce that sustainability will be a strong focal point throughout, with leading green thinkers Kambe helping them to get eco-friendly with reusable cups - keeping your shakedown in the sunshine guilt free.
