Manchester Music

Manchester's music scene has much to offer. Home of seminal bands like The Smiths, The Fall and The Stone Roses, and modern-day heroes such as Elbow and I Am Kloot, live music is abundant in Manchester.

Venues vary in size, atmosphere and history, but all have played host to exciting and legendary acts - The Academy, located on campus, has had everyone from Orbital to Amy Winehouse.

New acts view Manchester as an essential stopping-off point as they look to establish a fan base, playing at intimate and atmospheric venues such as the Deaf Institute, Night & Day, Roadhouse and Ruby Lounge.

Enjoy the diversity of music available in Manchester - jazz festivals, world music events, classical music and opera.

The Bridgewater Hall is one of Britain's premier venues for classical music and opera and is an impressive blend of modern architecture and great acoustics.

Manchester Opera House, one of the city's biggest theatre venues, stages more mainstream productions such as Bizet's Carmen.
