Manchester Punk Festival

MPF people. Get excited. The first Manchester Punk Festival is coming. 17/18 April 2015. Save the date.

Last years TNSrecords all-dayer was absolutely amazing. We were completely blown away by the amount of people that wanted to join us in celebrating 10 years of TNS. This left us with the kind of problem that you want to have. How can we possible follow that next year?

Easy, we get together we some great Manchester punk promoters to create something new and exciting, bigger and better. TNS has always been about collaborating with like minded people, working together to achieve something positive. So with that in mind, we present to you Manchester Punk Festival (MPF) brought to you by ourselves and our friends in Moving North and Anarchistic Undertones. We are big fans of what they do and always attend their events.Manchester has a thriving scene, so by working together we hope to combine some of the most exciting strands of the scene. You are probably aware of what they both do, but if not check them out: Moving North and Anarchistic Undertones.


The main event will be at Sound Control and be across two stages on Sat 18 April. Like last year’s all-dayer we will also have a free gig on the Friday and an after show for when the all-dayer ends. There will be at least 30 bands, probably more, across the whole weekend.

We are very pleased to announce the first bands confirmed for the festival are The Restarts, Wonk Unit, Crazy Arm, Almeida, Fair Do’s, Revenge of the Psychotronic Man, Great Cynics, Throwing Stuff and Wadeye.

So you obviously want in. Well we have a limited amount of early bird tickets up for sale at just £10. Make sure you don’t hang around as there aren’t many. We will be releasing the remaining tickets on the 1st December for £13. Head HERE to grab your ticket. All bundles will be sent out at the start of APRIL.

Keep an eye on the MPF website, Facebook and Twitter for all the latest info.

If you want something to happen, just make it happen.
