0161 Festival 2016 @ The Miners Community Arts and Music Centre | Manchester | United Kingdom
The 0161 Festival Crew are happy to present the 3rd edition of 0161 Festival. We wouldn’t be able to do any of this without the people who have supported us over the past couple of years so thank you to everyone!

The festival again will consist of bands and artists from all over Europe as usual, a whole variety of music but all united under the anti-fascist banner. There will be three stages, a main stage with bands and artists, an acoustic stage featuring solo acts and bands and a third stage that will be hosted by different DJs and soundsystems throughout the weekend.

As we did last year, all money raised from the festival will go towards anti-fascist groups throughout Europe to help keep the fight! Thanks again for the continued support.

Venue :

“The Miners Community Arts and Music Centre was a social club on a working class estate in North Manchester until it was left and neglected. We were established in 2011 and it is a family run Community Project. Over the last 3 years we have totally refurbished three quarters of this building which was an eyesore. Our aim is to provide a local multi functional building that will bring the local Community together for all aspects of socialising activities and a safe haven for the youth of today. There is space for local bands to rehearse and local artists to exhibit their work, there is also a community cafe.”

We wanted to do the event at a venue that is part of the community. They do so much amazing stuff there, and a huge variety, so we hope everyone visits the venue and after, they are a great part of the community and it is a pleasure and honour to know and work with them.
