Beyond The Music Festival and Conference comes to multiple Manchester venues on Thursday 12th - Saturday 14th October 2023. Sign up for tickets now.  

Back in July, the festival and conference revealed some of the artists performing at some of the best independent venues across the city including New Century, Night & Day Cafe, Band On The Wall, Aatma, Gullivers, 33 Oldham Street, and more. 

Now, Beyond The Music has announced its full lineup for the October weekend, with the likes of Cucamaras, Loose Articles, The Faux Faux, Tokky Horror, Walt Disco, iNKA, EEVAH , Natalie Shay, Cowboyy, Tommy Villiers (of Piri & Tommy), The Orielles, and many more set to perform, creating a lineup of a whopping 200 names. 


Curators for the event include SXSW, Dot To Dot, BBC Introducing, and Kicks Like A Girl, creating a diverse musical offering of countless genres. 

These 200 next-generation artists will play across a total of ten Manchester venues across three nights. The aim of the event is to create change in the industry and shine a light on a range of artists who may not have had the opportunity to reach new audiences and the industry professionals who help grow their careers.
