The venue, which resides in a former printing press, will prioritise putting on gender- and LGBTQ+-balanced lineups.
Cotton is a 200-capacity basement space located in a former printing press in the city's Northern Quarter. It'll have a custom soundsystem by Danley Sound Labs.
The club's programming will prioritise gender- and LGBTQ+-balanced lineups. "We want Cotton to be a truly safe and inclusive space for all," Cotton's Anton Stevens said. "We believe that if you're going to start something new, it should share the same modern values reflective of everyone that resides here."
Umwelt and Phoebe Valentine will play the opening party on Friday, September 13th. Juan Atkins, Shackleton, rRoxymore, SPFDJ, Teki Latex, LSDXOXO, Photonz, IDA and feminist collective All Hands On Deck feature on the autumn programme among others.
