Manchester music promoters Fat Out Til You Pass Out host the third installment of their DIY festival in May with their most collaborative effort to date. Combining music, performance, art and film, the event will feature stages curated by Video Jam, Gizeh Records, Opal Tapes and Tombed Visions as well as interactive installations by Action Beat and collaborations from visual artist KHOM. Hosted at Islington Mill over three days, expect an eclectic line-up, with main stage performances coming from ‘Jap-rock titans’ Melt-Banana (pictured) and critically acclaimed Cut Hands, alongside Terminal Cheesecake, Drunk in Hell, Lau Nau, Nisennemondal and Charles Hayward.
