Manchester Folk Festival 2023
Manchester Folk Festival aims to create the spirit of a festival in a field? Minus the chemical toilets. And the mud. Manchester Folk Festival takes place in the Northern Quarter, the vibrant musical heart of the city, at some of the most well-established and iconic music venues this area has to offer. Our exciting new venues for 2023 include: Band on the Wall New Century Hall Hall? St Peters Night and Day Hall? at St Michaels Soup Kitchen The festival is a rolling programme where festival pass holders will be able to dip in and out of these legendary music venues through the 3 days of the very best in English Folk and Acoustic music. All of the venues are within a short walk of each other, making it easy to move between concerts, catch up with friends, and just hang around taking in the atmosphere. New for 2023 will be exciting international partnerships bringing in new music from around the world. We are also excited to introduce more sessions to the festival programme, alongside our traditional Sunday singaround. Band on the Wall is our new festival hub and late-night festival club featuring the best emerging folk-influenced artists. The full line-up of artists will be announced in April 2023, but as always, whether you prefer traditional folk, the best in singer-songwriters or something a little more alternative, there?ll be something for everyone!
