Manchester Popfest

Islington Mill, Manchester, Interior

A brand new two-day festival in Manchester spread across two of the city's fun-loving venues.

Taking place on Saturday 15th August and Sunday 16th August at Kraak and Islington Mill respectively, Popfest makes its debut this year for a feast of music, art and film.

Down at the Mill on Sunday there's live music from Cardiff indie pop ensemble The School, Mallorca's Papa Topo, Portuguese dream-punk sisters Pega Monstro, off-kilter pop outfit Spread Eagle, Spanish noise pop duo Los Bonsais, our very own Former Bullies, indie popsters Amida and local lo-fi group Cop Graveyard. As well as this, the event will play host to the first Manchester screening of celebrated doc, 'My Secret World: The Story Of Sarah Records', detailing the story of Bristol independent label Sarah Records, which flourished in the DIY circuit throughout the late 80s and 90s.
