Taking over a long list of beloved venues on Sun 1 May, are the likes of Salford formed psychedelic noise collective, GNOD, Edinburgh born singer-songwriter, Hamish Hawk, and regulars of Gilles Peterson’s We Out Here festival and a favourite of the late, great Virgil Abloh, Manchester neo-soul and RnB band, Lovescene.

Other standout names in the latest announcement include female DJ collective, Queer Latifah, Amsterdam’s indie-pop powerhouse, Pip Blom, as well as RnB and pop sensation, TYSON.

As always, some of the city’s favourite spots will play host, with shows taking place across Bexley Square, Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse, fivefourstudios, Hot Bed Press, Old Pint Pot, Partisan, Porta, Regent Trading Estate, Saint Philip’s Church and The New Oxford, while MIF will present MIF Sounds artists Test Card Girl, Dirty Freud and SIBZ plus many more on their Factory stage on Chapel Street, ahead of their own landmark opening next year.
