As MPF2017 is drawing closer! With over half the tickets already sold, we decided now is the right time for our final band announcement. We couldn’t be happier with how the line up looks already. We think these 19 bands add so much to the festival and makes it even better.

First up we have well respected Sarrf Landan favourites Inner Terrestrials. They are a band we have always been big fans of so it’s a pleasure to welcome them on to this year’s line up. After The Fall will be heading over form Albany, NY to continue their current drive to get around the globe as much as possible. They last played in Manchester in late 2015 to a great reception.

Representing the ever growing crop of quality local grind bands, we have two of the best. Foetal Juice from Bury and The Afternoon Gentlemen from Leeds will be coming to tear you a new one. We are very pleased that Sh*t Present are able to be involved this year after trying to make it work last year. A Moving North favourite, when they make the journey up here.

Tony Vermin constantly tells us that Liverpool is the best place in the world. He must drink a lot. However we decided to take it on board and add three of our favourite scouse crews; Bolshy, Queen Zee & The Sasstones and Crocodile God. They will be hopping over to Manchester to party for the weekend. With MPF see Crocodile God reforming after a long hiatus.

Muncie Girls and Bear Trade are both back to get involved after storming it for us in 2015. They will be joined by debut MPF performances from Jakal, bringing their heavyweight ska up from London, and brutally heavy Danish hardcore band Kollapse, who share members with Mighty Midgets.

Another band we are excited to have on this year is Strange Bones. They bring punk rock and roll from Blackpool. They’ve been making waves across a number of music scenes over the last couple of years and are ready to show us what they are all about. The played the anniversary of Anarchistic Undertones last year and definitely left a lasting impression.

Finishing off the acoustic stage line up will be Efa Supertramp and Helen Chambers, both great UK artists. As always, we like to include as many of our favourite local bands. We feel there is such a strong roster of bands in the UK, particularly close to home. So we asked Denim & Leather and Epic Problem to join us for the first time. With returns from Wadeye and Riggots who are well known locally and always put on a great show.
