After All Festival

This Saturday, April 20th, the hugely popular music event the After All Festival returns to Manchester city centre.

Now into its fifth year, the festival was launched in 2019 by well-known man about town Owen Meikle Williams. The festival's aim has always been to bring some of the best new and unsigned music to the city centre in an all-day event. The venues that are going to be hosting After All this year will be The Peer Hat and Aatma. 

There will be 25 bands and artistes playing across the 12-hour event, including Inego, Daz Cadwallander, Black Sonic Revolver, The Marbellas, and one of the city's favourite and most respected musicians, Chris Bridgett (pictured). Owen plans on expanding the festival in the future, so any musicians who want to be involved can contact him through the official website, www.afterallmusic.co.uk. 

This Saturday will be a great day. I (Dave Sweetmore) will be hosting the event and then doing an after-party DJ set at The Peer Hat alongside members of Inego. It's always a brilliant day with great people, and one I look forward too each year. 

Other acts at After All will include Bones Shake, Violet Club, Indoor Shoes, Shrouded, The Bliss, Jacob Reddy, Baboon Room, The Information Highway, Daniel Darley, Big Cat Chic, The Last Clouds, Late Night Drive, The Distance, 3rd Degree Gurns, Phil Quinn and The Sigils, Molly Andrew and Johnny Eldridge. The day is supported by The Gig TV Show and RGM Magazine. 

After All Festival is a must for every fan and supporter of new music, so I hope to see you there. Remaining tickets are available online on Fatsoma, and the day starts at 12.30pm, with The Peer Hat opening first, followed by Aatma at 1pm.
