Festival Description

The Industrial Revolution forged the world’s first modern city, which in 2007 launched the world’s first international festival of original, new work—created by leading artists from across the spectrum of credible popular culture, innovation and the arts. Drawing from the city’s pivotal role in music, the Festival programme will have a focus on new music—premiering work by established and emerging international musicians. In step with the city’s history, the Festival will focus on the important issues and stories of our time, through debates and new commissions. It will also reaffirm the city’s 24 hour party spirit by working with the city’s clubs, bars, cafes and restaurants. Many of the Festival’s productions and events will world premiere in the city before touring to other international destinations, such as Paris, New York and Berlin. The Festival programme will also feature on National TV and Radio, in newspapers and magazines, on digital platforms and the internet, in books and in cinemas.

Festival Dates July 4 - 21, 2013
