Happy Mondays, Forum, 22nd October 2023 by Mary Boukouvalas

Formed in Salford England, Happy Mondays were one of the most influential groups of the 80s and 90s. Let by frontman Shaun Ryder, the group fused UK’s indie and emerging Acid house scene to help mint the genre-defying sound that would be become ‘Madchester’ creating a unique sound that has stood the test of time.

Their music, style and attitude embodied the era, making them one of the most beloved and influential British bands of all time.
