0161 Festival 2016


Anti-fascist benefit festival in Manchester, UK.


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 like the past couple of years and a whole host of other surprises and events that we will release over the coming months.

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.

Confirmed bands and artists are as follows ;


(Exact set times to be confirmed nearer the festival)

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.
