MPF (Manchester Punk Festival) returns for 2024 – First bands announced

Over the years, MPF (Manchester Punk Festival) has been a brilliant showcase for hundreds of up and coming bands. Alongside a few name headliners, the event has been the best place to see alternative and punk artists in small venues as they make their mark on the DIY scene.

Previous years have seen sets from Propagandhi, Light Year, Wonk Unit, Chaser, Pizzatramp and countless others. The legendary Discharge had been confirmed to appear at the 2020 event, but the world had other ideas.

The first clutch of bands have been confirmed for the 2024 event, and in terms of cult artists, it looks like one of the MPF’s best line ups to date with Tsunami Bomb, Hot Water Music and A Wilhelm Scream joined by Pizzatramp, Margate’s Pink Suits, ska legends King Prawn, Spoilers, Raisin Awareness and dozens of others, with even more names to be confirmed later.

More of the confirmed line up can be seen on the poster below. You can find out more and also book tickets via the TNS Records Bandcamp page here.
