Save the date: Manchester International Festival returns next summer from Thursday 29 June to Sunday 16 July 2023.

Taking place across the city as well as at Factory International, MIF23 is set to bring 18 extraordinary days of events, performances and happenings to Greater Manchester.

Together with our partners from across the city, we’re planning an incredible summer bringing artists from all over the world to use Manchester as their inspiration and canvas – and inviting the people of Manchester to shape what we deliver and how we deliver it.

Expect collaborations from some of the most exciting creative minds of our generation – blurring artforms, pushing boundaries and addressing contemporary issues. More than that, finding the joy in hard times and inviting you to take part too.

As the first festival to take over our flexible new building, expect a dive into the unknown, alongside the usual world firsts and world class art.

We can't wait to share our programme with you next Spring and lift the lid on how you can get involved – watch this space.
