The event founders describe Manumission a lifestyle. The word Manumission means "release from slavery" and in the party, people were free to do whatever [they wanted] to do.[1]


Manumission started in as a mixed gay event held at Club Equinox [2] in January 1994 in the Gay village, Manchester, UK it was forced to close due to gang warfare involving drug dealers [3] before moved to the Ku Nightclub, Ibiza later that year.[1] Ku changed its name to Privilege Nightclub in 1995.
