Manchester International Festival (MIF) is the world’s first festival of original, new work and special events. The Festival is staged every two years in Manchester, UK – the next edition will take place in July 2021 at venues all over the city.

MIF brings together artists from different art forms and backgrounds to create dynamic, innovative and forward-thinking new work, which are staged in a rich tapestry of venues across in Greater Manchester – from theatres, galleries and concert halls to railway depots, churches and car parks. The festival works closely with venues, festivals and other cultural organisations around the world, whose financial and creative input helps to make many of the projects possible and guarantees that they have a life after each Festival has ended.

The organisers work widely within communities around Manchester with My Festival, MIF’s creative community. My Festival is a diverse network of creative people who are forging closer connections with MIF – taking part in public projects, connecting the Festival to their communities, and joining the programmes of training activities, workshops and other special events.
