Fair Play has announced its second wave of artists featured at the one day festival, taking place in Manchester’s Northern Quarter on 1st April, 2023. The Rodeo has partnered with the festival once again, so expect more updates as the event draws near!
Joining artists like Grove, Keg, and Naima Bock, Fair Play 2023 has announced that punk-infused dance group SCALPING, electronic pop musician Otta, glitchy pop duo Robbie & Mona, solo cellist Slow Cooked, and modern pop newcomer Spielmann will perform, alongside many more artists. Bristol-based record label Spinny Nights are curating one of the stages featuring artists from their roster and label friends, as featured in Volume 17 of our magazine, (still available here!)
The second edition of the event will be even bigger than the sold out, inaugural festival last year, adding a new venue with the long-standing Night and Day Cafe joining venues SOUP, Gullivers, The Castle Hotel, and The Peer Hat in hosting.
The festival aims to hold itself to its name, creating a fair playing field for artists with a diverse and accessible lineup that is inclusive of genre, gender, sexuality, race, and beyond. Early bird and first-tier general release tickets for the event have already sold out, but second-tier and low wage tickets are now on sale.
