Following 7 hugely successful festivals to date and now in its 8th year, Manchester’s Blackthorn Music Festival presents another superb line-up for 2019, taking place July 19th-21st at Whitebottom Farm. Continuing their loyal commitment to supporting local talent, this year once again sees an array of talent being presented from all over the UK including Scouting For Girls, The South, Pigeon Detectives and Republica.

Blackthorn Music Festival is a true celebration of city culture and rural produce. Manchester is responsible for creating and supporting some of the best music ever made, and the surrounding areas have produced some of the tastiest, highest quality food and drink available. If you come to Blackthorn, be assured that you will experience the best of the city along with the best of the countryside.

As well as top music, there will also be a variety of other arts showcased at Blackthorn. Dedicated areas for acoustic acts and spontaneous live art installations appear throughout the festival, so if you go for a wander away from the main stage you never know what you might come across. After our successful venture into Glamping last year, we are increasing the number of Bell Tents available to hire. So why not go for the luxurious approach and enjoy the whole weekend.

Full line-up available on the Blackthorn Music Festival social media pages and website.

Full weekend tickets available for just £70 for adults and £40 for 15 and under, with individual day tickets also available. All the details, including camping and glamping info, as well as festival guidelines, available at
