Off The Record

Off The Record is a brand new emerging multi-venue music event and conference in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

With a huge focus on NEW music and showcasing different artistic styles and innovative ideas, Off The Record starts as a daytime conference featuring discussions and panels from the likes of Everything Everything, Tim Burgess, Brian Canon (Oasis photographer) and many more, followed by 30 emerging artists performing in six renowned venues (The Castle, Gullivers, Soup Kitchen, Aatma, Ruby Lounge & Night & Day Cafe). Casting a powerful spotlight on these talented artists, who have all been picked by national curators from within the music industry (such as Guy Garvey, Huw Stephens, Frank Turner, Shell Zener, Elizabeth Alker – BBC 6 Music), Off the Record is the place to say you’ve seen the next big band/artist first!


With a huge focus on the undiscovered, the line-up will be released just 24 hours before the event!

This thrilling addition to Manchester’s musical landscape is just £35 for a conference & showcase ticket or just £15 for the evening showcase.
