Welcome to Manchester Folk!
Manchester Folk Festival is an urban multi-venue festival based in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The festival takes place each October and brings together a diverse range of artists who represent the broad definition of contemporary folk music.
We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who attended and supported this year’s festival from 19th – 21st October 2023. We had a fantastic time and we cannot wait to be back from 20th – 22nd March 2025! Early bird wristbands are on sale for the 2025 event now.
We’ll be adding photos from our 2023 event to our gallery very soon.
As well as our annual festival, we hold gigs in Manchester throughout the year which you can find listed further down and in our ‘What’s On’ page as ‘concerts’.
