The longtime friend of the Festival came to Manchester Central for his first shows since the pandemic

Accompanied by a band and string quartet, Damon's set included new songs from his latest project The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows – and some familiar favourites.

Damon Albarn is a singer, songwriter, composer, producer and founder member of Blur, Gorillaz and The Good, The Bad & The Queen. His past MIF appearances include the world premiere of his opera Monkey: Journey to the West, which opened our very first Festival in 2007.


Produced by Manchester International Festival.
