MFF 2022 Passes On Sale Now HERE


Now that live music has returned, we are very excited to bring you Manchester Folk Festival 2021!

We want to assure you that the safety of our audiences and artists is our top priority and we are closely following all COVID-safe guidelines and our events will adhere to the Government guidance in place.

In the event that the festival has to be rescheduled, you will be notified and your ticket/s will be valid for the rescheduled date, or a refund will be issued if you cannot make the rescheduled date. In the event of cancellation, you will be notified and your ticket/s will be refunded.

While it is no longer a requirement, we strongly encourage you to wear a face covering when entering any of the festival’s venues. From arrival at the venue, queuing to enter and once inside the building, to help keep venue staff, festival staff and others as safe as possible.

Our festival is multi-venue based and each venue has their own entry policy.

You may be required to carry proof of a negative NHS Rapid Lateral Flow Test (such test to be taken within 24 hours prior to attending the event at the venue) or proof that you have had both doses of vaccinations.

As entry policies may change over the coming weeks, rather than list each one here we have provided links to each venue’s policy here to make sure you have the most up-to-date information.
