The Red Stains are here to disrupt Manchester's post-punk scene and the male-dominated music industry. Comprised of Natalie Emslie on vocals, Sterling Kelly on bass, Ella Powell on synths and Ben Dutton on drums, the four-piece have crafted a distinct 'plastic fantastic disco-punk sound'. Following a smashing performance at MIF23, The Red Stains have since played Shambala Festival and been featured on BBC Introducing.

Watch The Red Stains perform Smile live at MIF23 on Festival Square.
