Following the success of the festival’s debut last year, a host of emerging UK bands are set to play across four intimate venues in Manchester on 17 April.
Curated by four young music fans, When In Manchester is returning to bring its DIY ethos to one of the UK’s most musical cities, and will see 23 of the finest up-and-coming bands take to the stage at The Castle Hotel, Gullivers, Night & Day Café and the recently opened Jimmy’s; four of Manchester’s best intimate venues.
One of the bands set to feature at the city centre festival is indie/punk three-piece from West London, The Tuts. Their back to basics debut album evoked the best of the riot grrl movement, and received acclaim from Iggy Pop when it was released last year. As a live act they can’t be missed.
Also playing at When In Manchester are Kashmere, the rapidly emerging band from Stockport, and riff-laden-dreamy-indie pop group from Chesterfield, Trash. Returning from his UK tour supporting The Sherlocks, native Mancunian Jordan Allen will also be headlining the Night & Day stage.
The full line-up is:
South Island Son
The Ninth Wave
Gathering of Strangers
Jack Oliver Monty
Ethan and the Reformation
Where Firest Are
