Manchester International Festival announces performers
The 2020 version of the Manchester International Festival has announced some big names, both on stage and screen. So, between July 1st and July 18th, you will be able to see Patti Smith doing her thing, as well as a new movie starring Cillian Murphy that’s got a formidable soundtrack by Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner and Jon Hopkins.
The event has released one of those marvellously popular social media compilations which tells you nothing at all about what’s happening, so your best bet is to scoot over to the website
where everything is laid out, and discover this multi media, multi genre melting pot at it’s finest. It’s worth mentioning too that, “We’re proud to say 50% of this year’s programme is free, presented both in person and online. MIF Live is our dedicated platform that lets your stream events live or catch up on demand, so you won’t miss a thing.”
