Manchester Jazz Festival - Festival Square
Festival Square sits in the iconic Albert Square and is the hub of the festival. With the impressive, Gothic Town Hall towering over, providing a striking backdrop to the action, Festival Square is a beautiful location for those looking to experience exciting new music.
We are delighted that once again the square will be home to a 1920s Spiegeltent, where nearly half of all mjf events will take place. A further 20% of events will take place on the free outdoor stage in Festival Square.
As well as gigs in Salon Perdu, Festival Square will be animated with free, outdoor music throughout most days and early evenings.
Relax with friends and family and savour mjf’s fantastic food and drink offer; award-winning wood-fired pizza, stone-baked by returning mjf food vendor Wood Fire Smoke, southern style chicken brought to you by Oh My Glaze, the very best pork Frankfurters from Diamond Dogs hot dogs, fresh vegan, vegetarian and meat Lebanese dishes supplied by Bakchich, authentic Thai Street food by Somtam Street, the very best quality coffees and, of course, the Brightside Festival Bar. New for this year they will be bringing you Asian style ice cream rolls provided by the Ice Alchemists.
