2024 Line-up


Get planning for your trip to MPF2024. Find all the information you need here.

Thanks for buying a ticket. Have a read here about how to use it to get your wristband! You can collect your wristband from midday at The Union on each day of the festival.

The wristband exchange is at The Union (M15 6AD) and is open from midday each day of the festival. .

Your MPF2024 merch should have arrived pre-fest. Please get in touch if it didn’t arrive. We will soon be putting any remaining MPF2024 merch on sale.

We cannot offer refunds unless the event is cancelled. However, we have partnered with Twickets to provide a face-value fan-to-fan resale environment. Head to Twickets here.

Nope. Weekend Tickets only, we deliberately keep the price as low as possible so it’s still value for money if you can’t make the whole weekend. Buy a weekend ticket here.

All age restrictions are available on the venues section of our Info page. These age restrictions are set by the venues themselves and we cannot alter them for the weekend.

The majority of our venues – and all main venues – are wheelchair accessible. We are aware that some of these venues do not provide full accessibility, especially for those people who may struggle to use stairs. To read more please head to the accessibility section of our Info page and read this article.

Please email bev(at) to apply.

We are inundated with requests to play MPF which, although flattering, means we can’t reply to everybody. We all run this festival in our spare time so feel free to drop a message, but please don’t be offended if we don’t get back to you. The roster of bands we work with is built from the ground up. If your band is active, gigging, and contributing to, the UK DIY punk rock community then we’ll know of you sooner or later!

We work with loads of great designers each year. Here is who we’ve worked with for MPF2024.

Poster, logo and website design – Millie Rose Kelly
The MPF2024 bee collage design is by Jack from Get A Real Job Kid.
The MPF2024 Owl design is by Mark Bell
Website – Kaluna


Manchester Punk Festival will be taking place across Easter weekend, 18-20 April 2025.

We’ll have over 140 acts playing across our 7 venues. Super Early are SOLD OUT and Early Bird running low so act quick.

MPF is what happens when you sit three different promoters in a pub to discuss starting something where the bands we know and love can play to new people who would appreciate them exactly the same as those who’ve supported them this far. We want to provide an environment where people want to watch bands they’ve never heard of alongside bands they love, and an environment for bands to play in front of their best friends and complete strangers.

We want everyone to feel comfortable and enjoy themselves at MPF, we take a zero-tolerance approach to any form of discrimination. Be good to each other, enjoy the festival and thanks so much for being a part of it. As some guy called Joe once said “without people, we’re nothing.”
