BBC Radio 6 Music Festival returns to Greater Manchester in March

The 6 Music Festival 2024 will take place across Greater Manchester from Thursday 7 – Sunday 10 March.

Lauren Laverne revealed the news during her 6 Music Breakfast show this morning.

The station’s live music festival, which started in 2014 and is now based permanently in Greater Manchester, will feature unique performances you won’t see anywhere else, as well as DJ sets from emerging and established acts.

Once again, there will be a mix of daytime, evening and late-night events from the area’s legendary venues.

Samantha Moy, Head of BBC Radio 6 Music says: “Last year’s festival was a triumph – amazing artists, distinctive and world-exclusive performances and a true celebration of Greater Manchester’s ever-flourishing music scene.

“This year we’re back to the Festival’s home to bring you your favourite bands and artists with a 6 Music Festival twist. See you in March!”

The full line-up and venues will be announced in the New Year.

Many of 6 Music’s presenters will also be broadcasting their shows live from MediaCityUK in Salford and from the festival venues during the event.
