BBC Radio 6 Music Festival returns to Manchester in March 2024

Lauren Laverne has announced that the 6 Music Festival will return to Manchester in 2024.

Speaking on her breakfast show on Tuesday, Lauren confirmed the event will take place from Thursday 7th – Sunday 10th March.

The station’s flagship live music festival, which is now based permanently in Greater Manchester, will once again feature unique performances plus DJ sets from emerging and established acts.

It will offer a mix of daytime, evening and late-night events from the area’s 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.
