Manchester Folk Festival is now in it’s second year, celebrating the best of English folk and acoustic roots music. It is an urban festival. A gathering of all kinds of folk.

The festival takes place in one area of the city over one weekend. HOME will beat the heart of the festival. Gorilla, The Ritz and Great Northern Warehouse also host gigs and you can get involved too, with workshops and sing-arounds nearby. It will have the spirit of a festival in a field, right in the core of the city. From true folk tradition to contemporary unions, protest songs to haunting ballads, the festival will present familiar names alongside exciting new voices. Contemporary folk straddles genres, embraces different cultures a...nd absorbs new influences. With over 13 concerts, workshops and more, Manchester Folk Festival is dedicated to bringing you new discoveries and profiling the incredible range of music that the current English folk and acoustic scene has to offer. Manchester Folk Festival is the legacy of the successful Homegrown Festival in Bury.
