The second headliner of the evening is a legend of the trance/dance scene, the Dutch force that is Signum will be making their debut appearance in Manchester. With a career spanning nearly 14 years and a list of productions any producer would give there right arm for!

Last year MAJEFA experimented with its first ever official pre-party, conveniently placed next door to the main event. The pre-party was an event in itself and saw the dancefloor full before the main event had even started. So once again we will be taking over Revolution on Oxford Road from 19:00 - 22:00 with free entry and cheap drinks. Headling the event is Godskitchen resident Steve Arnold and Defcon artist Jamie Walker with Gareth Johns on the warm up duties.
