What Is Manchester 0161 Festival?

We are an anti-fascist D.I.Y. benefit festival that’s been running for the last few years to raise money for anti-fascist activists throughout Europe. With a huge variety of music, films, and other activities going on over the weekend, there is something for everyone to enjoy. We aim to show that regardless of the music you like, or where you come from, that we are all united under the anti-fascist banner.

The aim of the festival, since the start has been to bring people from the community and further afield to join together in solidarity against racism and fascism. To all stand together, as one, no matter who you are or where you come from. For a long time, anti-fascist and anti-racist benefit gigs and events have been very much part of a ‘clique’ and not engaging with people from different backgrounds and communities. We started the festival to change that, to have music from all over the world, people from all walks of life.
