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.
On the Saturday night there will be multiple afterparties including Deadbolt’s own clubnight at Pub/Zoo.
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.
Liam Connolly, founder of Deadbolt, 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!”
Weekend tickets for the festival are available to purchase now on our website, See Tickets, Fatsoma,Skiddle and Ticketline for £26 and will include entry to the afterparties for over 18s. Limited Early Bird tickets are available from our site only for £20.
Six years ago we started a midweek night called Deadbolt with the intention of being the night we always wanted to go to.
Combining interactive elements, bringing in special guests and caring about our audience were our key components. Later on we added live bands and huge giveaways to the mix. This lead to us moving to weekends and becoming the number 1 alternative party experience in the city.
As is tradition for Deadbolt, the birthday will be celebrated with live performances followed by a clubnight filled with guests, games and giveaways. If you’re looking for an alternative night out in Manchester on Saturday 11th March, Pub/Zoo is where you need to be!
After their big show at Academy with Lower Than Atlantis and Young Guns, Roam will be throwing down huge tracks to assist your party needs until late!
The biggest alternative party in Ireland, Dublin’s Sabotage, are making their Deadbolt return! Last time they came, they had the roof fully raised and for our birthday they promise to take it to the next level! Expect Irish stagedives.
Our buddies at Emo Disco have captivated several cities in the UK with their mix of nostalgia and tearjerking bangers. They’re coming to our birthday party to bring the feels and dancefloor anthems all at once.
What sort of a birthday party would it be without free cake and party games? Take part in Giant Jenga, Birthday Pong and Flip Cup amongst other Deadbolt favourites to win Southern Comfort goodies, a year’s free entry to Deadbolt clubnights and other surprises.
