Deadbolt Festival is returning to Manchester

  • Alternative music festival, Deadbolt, is returning to Manchester this summer
  • Over 60 punk, metal and rock bands will be performing at Pub/Zoo bar
  • Tickets are available now!

Deadbolt Festival is making a return to its hometown of Manchester this autumn.

The pop-punk, metalcore, hardcore and rock event will take place on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October 2017 with three stages each day. The stages will be at Gorilla, Factory, Zoo, Underdog and Zombie Shack.

There will be over sixty bands playing over the weekend.

The Saturday night will include multiple after-parties including Deadbolt’s own club night.

Deadbolt, the monthly alternative party club night at Pub/Zoo, is known in the Manchester scene as the night to go for a move away from the traditional clubbing experience.

The club night incorporates elements of interactive games, live music performances and giveaways throughout the night to create a house party atmosphere with “a hint of mayhem.”

Founder of Deadbolt, Liam Connolly, said: “Deadbolt Festival is a chance for us to take the chaos of our club night and amplify it. Deadbolt Festival 2015 was the biggest thing that we have done to date and we can’t wait to make it even better this year with bigger bands, more brand collaborations and even more chaos!”

Amongst the first bands announced are  Martyr Defiled, Carcer City. Junior, Borders, Coast to Coast, Carbine, Kamikaze Girls, Better Than Never, Veridian, Highlives, Valliers, You Know The Drill, Black Coast, Home Wrecked, Everyday Sidekicks, Cascade, Autumn Ruin, Lotus Eater, From Inside and Illusions will also be performing.

Weekend tickets for the festival are available to purchase now at for £26 and will include entry to the afterparties for over 18s. Limited Early Bird tickets are available for £20.
