Ladyfest Manchester returns 7-9 October this year, bringing an eclectic lineup of live music, film, performance, art and ideas with it. Celebrating music and art created by women, this year’s festival takes place across eight venues in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, is mostly free and open to all genders. Ladyfest Manchester is all about fostering discussion about gender, empowering workshops and straightforward fun in the name of feminism.

Our highlights include Rise in the East, an evening of all-female DJs at Eastern Bloc, an afternoon of Feminist Workshops (including debates about women, race and resistance) and a Women in Tech event that aims to raise the visibility of women in technology during Manchester’s year as European City of Science. Practical workshops at the latter take in sound engineering, film editing, game design and coding – these sold out last year, so get booking.

Finally, Ladyfest Live is this year’s main event, with 10 acts performing across Gullivers and The Castle Hotel, showcasing some on 2016’s best female-fronted post-punk, indie pop, rock ‘n’ roll and electronic acts from Manchester and beyond. Lush.

Many events are free but some require booking
