More about the Festival

From major established acts to potential future stars, the line up reflects the wide range of artists you can hear on BBC Radio 6 Music every day.

The BBC Radio 6 Music Festival takes place on Friday 28th February and Saturday 1st March 2014, at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. We’re excited to be holding our inaugural festival in a city that’s played such an important role in British music history. The venue is also a stone’s throw from Media City, which is home to many of BBC Radio 6 Music’s shows.

The BBC Radio 6 Music Festival features 2 stages of live acts and a silent disco DJ stage. Doors for the evening event will open at around 4pm, and the event will finish around midnight on both days.

The BBC Radio 6 Music Festival Fringe is a separately ticketed free event running during the daytime on both days of the Festival, next door at the Victoria Warehouse hotel. 

Tickets for Friday and Saturday night’s shows and for the Festival Fringe have now all gone but you’ll be able to get exclusive access via BBC Radio 6 Music and online throughout the Festivak weekend.
