Strummercamp festival returns to Manchester Rugby Club this May after a well deserved rest following 10 successive years.. As ever, the 'friendliest festival on the circuit' will have a great line up of artists, every kind of rock n roll, punk, ska, reggae, folk, acoustic, poetry, art show, even a rabble rousing Klezmer band! With non rip off pub priced beers, value for money food, club house bar open all day, free parking, free camping, disabled facilities, safe family friendly area, shower facilities... Children go free, a 'pay what you can afford' offer on pre booked tickets.. Remaining true to its roots, this event is a 'hidden gem' for sure, several times nominated in the U.K. Festival awards..
This years line up features Spear of Destiny, The Membranes, TV Smith, Department S, The Wakes, Bob Marley tribute Buffalo Soldiers
The bands play under a covered marquee so any bad weather doesn't affect us!
Added stages this year from our friends TNS, fresh off their involvement with the massively successful Manchester Punk Festival, and an alternative cabaret extravaganza from the Shangrila promoters, celebrating their 10 year anniversary .
This event remains in the positive spirit and influence of Joe Strummer -
“Without People We're Nothing”
