Manchester Welcomes First-Ever Fair Play Festival

0 16

A brand new festival is coming to Manchester this month, taking place at St Philips Church on 28th March. Fair Flay Festival celebrates an eclectic mix of artists spanning a wide range of genres.

The line-up features an exclusive headline set from LA Priest who are back after a five-year hiatus. With the upcoming release of new album GENE, set to appear on music platforms on 24th April, Fair Play festival gives fans of LA Priest the chance to be the first to hear new material live.

Joining them on the line-up are International Teachers of Pop, bringing with them infectious pop ballads that are too good for the classroom.

Further down the bill are Manchester’s very own PINS, who have recently released their first album in five years, Bad Girls Forever, offering anthems that are perfect for dancing in your bedroom too.

In addition to this already stellar line-up is post-punk all-female group Las Kellies, Country Teasers frontman – The Rebel, experimental DIY collective POSA and electric duo YANG.

Also making an appearance at the festival is Global Source Kitchen, a vegan street-food project, with high-quality food from a diverse range of cuisines from around the world.

If you want to find some new favourite bands and see festival-history in the making, get down to St Philips Church for Fair Play Festival, it’s set to be a fantastic day.
