Manchester, by the Sea

During this year’s Great Escape Festival, Manchester and Salford’s finest independent labels will be hitting the seaside, scattering pebbles and sharpening ear-crunching sticks of rock in a dirty attic at the Pav Tav.

Curated by the 3 best labels in the North West (Akoustik Anarkhy, Melodic, Sways) you can expect to hear party vibes from the best bands the rainy city has produced in years with appearances from Ghost Outfit, Plank!, Driver Drive Faster, The Longcut, Greatwaves, Michael A Grammar, Beat The Radar and The Louche. Throw in a host of DJs including Xfm’s John Kennedy, special secret guests appearances from pals of the label and a bar that’s open until 3am (maybe even 6am!) and you can be sure this will be the late night party hangout of the festival.

A playlist of what you can expect from Manchester, by the Sea is available on soundcloud here and connect with the festival on facebook here.
