Manchester has a huge variety of cheap hotels and hostels, we recommend trying these; Luther King House, Lansdowne Hotel, Hatters Hostel, Youth Hostel Association Manchester, Rams Lodge, Chancellors Hotel, Ibis Budget, The Willowbank Hotel. Also using airbnb is a really good way of getting cheap accommodation for a group of you! Many hotels will offer cheap bookings for larger groups as well.
Your ticket will be arriving around a month before the event in 2019 with a brochure included showing what will be happening during the festival. Do not worry!
