Manchester Folk Festival 2021

After missing 2020 due to the pandemic, to say we are excited to bring you Manchester Folk Festival 2021 is an understatement! 

We have a huge mix of shows across 4 venues. If you prefer your folk more traditional, check out our shows with Spiers & Boden, Kathryn Tickell & The Darkening, The Gigspanner Big Band, Banter and The English Fiddle Ensemble. Want to hear some of the best songwriters around? How about John Bramwell & The Full Harmonic Convergence, Lady Nade, Jesca Hoop, Sam Carter or O’Hooley & Tidow?

We’re also hosting some fantastic bands from Hungary, so if you love world music we have MUZSIKÁS and Pengetős Trio plus there’s also world music influenced folk from Kabantu and Sheelanagig.

Don’t miss our special acoustic / a cappella gig from The Futureheads plus much, much more! For the full line-up and tickets head here.
