Independent Manchester promoters Strange Days and Now Wave collaborate again for the second outing of Strange Wave, their one-day mini-festival.

Following last year’s Strange Waves debut, which brought King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and recent Mercury Prize nominees The Big Moon to the Ritz, this return to the same venue features two New York rock bands, Parquet Courts and Beach Fossils. They will be joined on a packed bill by Ultimate Painting, OMNI, Nap Eyes and plenty more across two floors – for seven hours of exciting music from the latest crop of up-and-coming bands.
