With the kind of musical legacy that the Manchester City has, it is little surprise to know that there are several places where live performances are organised. In fact, live music performances and programs tend to form one of the prime Manchester Attractions.
In the year 2013, Manchester International Festival was organised with new owners Trof, those who are behind the success of other great venues in Manchester such as the Deaf Institute and Gorilla, reviving as well as restoring this truly spectacular area for different performances by, including others, Maxine Peake in The Masque of Anarchy, Goldfrapp and Mogwai. The main area where performances take place is simply astonishing.
Band on the Wall:
Having been engineered as well as revamped specifically with live music performances into consideration, Band on the Wall is one of the most reputed spaces for club nights and shows. It is a spacious venue featuring a series of cosy balconies in the round and a huge wooden dancefloor. The music programs which are organised lean towards experimental and world. It has won many acclaim for supporting jazz, for which it is considered as one of the finest venues in the entire United Kingdom.
Post the establishment of the bar; the space for performances was reopened making Gorilla one of the greatest mid-sized venues for club nights, gigs, book reading and everything which is in between. The listing indicates a longing to mix established names with those who are looking for break or emerging.
Located outside the city centre, down the Curry Mile, past the Universities and right on the edge of the student Mecca, popularly known as Fallowfield, is the Antwerp Mansion providing rough-around-the-edges and unique setting from some of the raucous legal parties adding to the Manchester’s Nightlife.
