These are the venues that we will be using for MPF2020. 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.
Our main stage for MPF2020 will be at The Union.
Registration will be at The Union from midday every day.
Entrance to Gorilla will be round the side under the railway arch.

Across the road from Font and above the Thirsty Scholar, this venue is intimate and always a party.
Our new "almost-acoustic" stage for 2020! YES is a brand new venue for Manchester, located next door to The Lass o'Gowrie, a 3-minute walk from Zombie Shack and on the way to The Bread Shed and The Union down Oxford Road!
YES has a much better layout to watch bands than the previous venue with no massive pillars in sight!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Walking times between the venues to help you plan your schedule will be posted nearer the weekend.
