The City's longest-running music festival returns for it's 24th year
MJF2019 returns to the city centre with a fresh new look, a new festival hub location and more venues across the city than ever before.
From May 23 – 27, the length of St Ann’s Square to New Cathedral Street will offer three stages of free music and more than 60 free gigs.
Here you’ll also find a range of culinary delights curated in partnership with Manchester Food and Drink Festival, and three festival bars.
Gigs will also take place across the city in more venues than ever before including new additions such as The Whiskey Jar, YES, The Royal Exchange Studio, The Bread Shed, Deaf Institute and The International Anthony Burgess Foundation.
Highlights of the full line-up include the premiere of three new commissions - Maja Bugge’s multi-media Northern, Nani Noam Vazana and Abel Selaocoe’s moving Both Sides of Africa and Andy Scott’s Mancunity – a spectacular opening fanfare for the festival, Manchester and its people.
Don’t miss the Celebrating Europe strand which champions rich musical talent from across the channel at such a pertinent political time. Catch artists such as Equilibrium, Sanem Kalfa & George Dimitriu and Federica Michisanti Trioness – all huge artists in mainland Europe – as they make their UK debuts in a series of intimate gigs across the city centre.
