VENUES

These are the venues that we will be using for MPF2019. All our venues are within walking distance of each other and play a great part in the live music scene in Manchester.

The running order for all stages is subject to change. Please check the running times posted at each stage on the day for the actual slot times. Although, we will try to stick to the published times and tell people though Twitter and Facebook of any changes.

Each stage has a set capacity. Once this is reached we will not be able to let anyone else in. This is particularly important for the more popular bands on the line-up. Please make sure you arrive early to the stage to ensure you get access.

VENUE ACCESSIBILITY

Manchester Punk Festival is organised across several city centre venues. We are aware that two of our venues do not provide full accessibility, especially for those people who may struggle to use stairs. Unfortunately, the viable venues available to us in the centre of Manchester limit our options. For MPF2019 we will be using newer venues with increased accessibility to make MPF more comfortable and welcoming for all. Although we continue to reassess and consider how to make the festival more accessible to all people in the future, we recognise that having access to just some of the performances would be restrictive and disappointing.

Because of this, we would like to offer a discounted ticket to people who will experience some restrictions due to accessibility issues. To enquire about a discounted ticket, or if you have any questions about access at any of the venues, please message the facebook page or email info@tnsrecords.co.uk

WALKING TIMES

Walking times between the venues to help you plan your schedule will be posted nearer the weekend.
