Here’s an update!

first_round_announcement-01-1

Oh, hey there. It’s a been a little while since I’ve had 5 minutes to update this but let me give you a quick overview of all the reasons.

The reasons include things like Paint It Black playing their first UK show in 7 years, Donovan Wolfington playing their first Manchester show ever and a celebration with Astpai! Continue reading

INTERVIEW: Doctrines vs. WACO

waco

Next up in the series of band-on-band interviews in the run up to Manchfester 4 (still sold out, sorry) we’ve got Luke Rees from Doctrines up against Jak Hutchcraft from WACO. This interview is particularly great because Luke and Jak actually grew up together and went to school together before moving to different parts of the country and starting different bands.

INTERVIEW: MOLAR vs. Honey Joy

VINNY

Manchfester 4 is a mere 20 days away, it’s waaay sold out and I am really, really excited for what we’ve got planned. As part of our band-on-band interview series in the build up to it, we’ve got the brilliant MOLAR up against Honey Joy going back and forth!

Both these bands are travelling up from London, where they decide to live their lives for some reason, and both will be on relatively early in the day (as there’s 13 bloody bands playing) so make sure you’re in Manchester and at The Star & Garter EARLY on 27th August. Q&A… Continue reading

Calvinball’s final hurrah…(again)

CBALLERSS

The first time we had the opportunity to put Calvinball on was for the first ever Manchfester at The Oxford in 2010, they were on tour with Leagues Apart and Cynics (before they became Great) and have had them on numerous line-ups and most of the Manchfester’s over the last 6 years.
In the last two years Calvinball gigs have been hard to come by, notably due to Joe (guitar) moving to Australia and further helped by Conor (drums) moving to Canada. Matt’s in Blackpool and Dave’s in Manchester so might as well be in two different continents still. Continue reading

Oi, listen up, I’m talking to EU.

There’s no .jpg that I can share, no link to an independent study, no hastily made meme with a statement that could be true or false. Every time I vote in an election, it matters a lot but I know that chance will come around again. I think that’s why the EU Referendum vote terrifies me more than anything else going on at the moment, this won’t happen again.

June…done and dusted!

manchfesterhypre

Moving North shows for June are all done and dusted, in the space of one weekend! Thanks to everyone who came out for the Blackhole and Brawlers show on Friday night, was nice to see Hopes back in the swing of things too. It was also the first time we’ve had the pleasure of using Fallow Cafe as a venue and it was bloody great.

WACO and Sam Russo added to Manchfester 4.

waco

Because 11 bands simply isn’t enough for Manchfester 4 – we decided to go and grab another two. In keeping with the old & new mix we’ve gone for someone who’s played many a Moving North show and a band that we’ve not yet had the pleasure of hosting. Continue reading

M4NCHFESTER – Saturday 27th August

13321900_10153574681421680_167705709458970336_n

It’s that time of year, Manchfester is coming around with a line-up of old and new and a bit of inbetween to fill your ears with some brilliant music for a whole day.

It’s the first and quite likely last one that will ever be at The Star & Garter too before that’s closed down so extra emotional on that front. Bands, you ask? Continue reading
