Manchester Psych Fest


Manchester Psych Fest certainly packs it in. It’s a one-day deep dive into the alternative music scene that marks the end of the summer festival season in the city.

From lo-fi to shoegaze swagger, acid folk to goth industrialism, this is the festival that brings it all together with a psychedelic flourish.

This year’s headliners include BC Camplight, Altin Gūn, Baxter Dury and The Horrors. Considering it’s a one-day event, the line-up is stacked with over 60 acts and more still to be announced. Don’t miss Willie J Healey and Heartworms further down the bill.
