Off The Record, the independent music festival that puts together emerging bands and the music industry’s biggest names, is back in Manchester for its third edition this month.

The festival kicks off with an evening of drinks and networking at Band on the Wall on November 15 and continues with masterclasses and workshops from 9.30-6.

The venue is new this year and together with Jimmy’s, The Peer Hat, Night & Day, The Castle Hotel, Atma, Soup Kitchen and Gullivers will host gigs of emerging artists chosen by Everything Everything, MCR Live and BBC Introducing to name a few.

With a new masterclass in songwriting and a conference about women in the industry, among many others, the festival promises once again to be a lead event this Autumn and a must-do for many aspiring artists.

Launched three years ago by Kendal Calling, Sound City and Bluedot, and sponsored by Exit Live with supporting from PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund for organisations, Off The Record is ready to be one of the biggest events for the music industry in Manchester.
