Manchester Folk Festival Bruntwood Stage Takeover

Manchester Folk Festival is an annual urban, multi-venue folk festival.

For one weekend each October we put the spotlight on English folk, roots and acoustic music – music that straddles genres and embraces different cultures. Find out more about this year’s Manchester Folk Festival here

The festival brings some of the biggest names in traditional and contemporary folk to Manchester. Since our first festival in 2017, HOME has been our ‘hub venue’ and we are very excited to have been asked to present a weekend at Homeground and the city centre stage to showcase the wide-ranging sounds of folk music.
