Welcome to the Manchester Food & Drink Festival 2018


The City Life Stage at the Hub

The City Life Stage at the Hub

Thursday 27th September - Sunday 7th October at Festival Hub, M2 5DB

The City Life Music Stage will once again be hosting a line-up of musicians and DJs worthy of a food festival based in the world's most musical city.

Across the 11 days of the Hub, you will be able to tune in, dance or just chill-out, to an eclectic mix of amazing artists, kicking off with Mr Wilson's Second Liners on our launch night, Thursday 27 September, and culminating on the evening of Sunday 7 October with headliner I Am Kloot's John Bramwell and his musicians. Sunday 30 September features another iconic Manc Clint Boon, hanging loose at the decks for  our Kid's Family Fun Day.

There'll be plenty of opportunities to get your dancing shoes on. Friday and Saturday nights are packed with party vibes. Sundays will be chill out central to relax and unwind to. XS Manchester host our Monday night, with Manchester bands, spin to win and beer pong. You want to party with added oompah? Albert's Schloss present a stage takeover on Wednesday 3 October. Thursday 4 sees City Life once again running the show. Last year they featured The Charlatans live. Expect an equally star studded bill this year.

Acts worth checking out include our great weekend party bands Whoever and the Somethings and the Covertones. Plus Manchester favourites - The Hayes Sisters, Charlotte Gallagher, Dave Fidler, Cassettes, Square  One, Derailer, Italian Job, Ben Williams, Lost Like Alice, Zoe Unsworth and many more.

There are three sessions each day:  

Lunchtime - from approx  noon-2.30pm

Teatime - from  approx 4pm-7pm

Suppertime -  from approx 7.30pm-11pm
