Manchester Folk Festival 2023 Festival Wristband Now On Sale!

5 December 2022

We are excited to announce that our 2023 Early Bird Festival Wristbands are now available to purchase. And we’re even more excited that our festival is moving locations! From 2023 the festival takes place in Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter.

Get your tickets HERE.

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.

Our exciting new venues for 2023 include:
Band on the Wall
New Century Hall
Hallé St Peters
Night and Day
Hallé at St Michaels
Soup Kitchen

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 May 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!
