Manchester Folk Festival returns on 19-21 October! For this edition, it is moving to the Northern Quarter to some of the most well established and iconic music venues in the city, with venues including Band on the Wall, New Century Hall, Hallé St Peters, Night and Day, Hallé at St Michaels and Soup Kitchen.
The festival is a rolling programme where festival pass holders will be able to dip in and out of the Northern Quarter’s legendary music venues through the three 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 the new festival hub and late-night festival club featuring the best emerging folk-influenced artists.
A limited number of Early Bird 3-Day Festival passes are available for £85 until end of the year. This price will increase in January so be sure to book early!
Tickets for individual concerts will be available from April.
