Live From The Grill 2023 comes to Deansgate Square in Manchester on Saturday 2nd - Sunday 3rd September 2023. Secure your free tickets now!

Following huge success last year, Live From The Grill returns to bring another two days of banging food and music. Incredible DJs and live acts will play over the weekend for pundits to enjoy while tucking into some of the best food the city has to offer. 


Who’s cooking? We’re glad you asked. Across the weekend, there’ll be Hulme legends Knights Caribbean BBQ, Ancoats’ Elnecot, Food Sorcery’s Malaysian Grill, deserts from Gooey, and more. 

In terms of tunes, on Saturday there’s a takeover from Habitat Crew, playing house, amapiano, funky, dancehall, and trap, hosted by Faro.

Sunday’s tunes will feature performances from Conor Michael with a full band, Zolatec with a steel drum set, Foxglove, Ellysse Mason, and more, including a special guest who’s yet to be announced. 


Manchester Union Brewery will also be there with a bespoke lager - a crisp, clean bev with hints of citrus, perfect for a summer barbecue bash. 

Both parties kick off at 12 pm and go on until 7 pm, giving you plenty of time to work either date into your schedule. 

Secure your free tickets now at the very bottom of this page to finally sink into that incredible summer feeling.
