Year’s End Festival kicks off its inaugural edition in Manchester this December. The new day-night festival will take over eight stages across Oxford Road Corridor with a packed line-up of more than 46 artists and bands.
Presented by Manchester record label Scruff of the Neck, Year’s End takes place in some of the Corridor’s classic pubs and clubs, uniting Deaf Institute, Zombie Shack, Thirsty Scholar, Bread Shed and Canvas to deliver enough floor space for 2,000 revellers.
As Manchester’s music scene goes from strength to strength, Scruff of the Neck is making its mark moulding and representing some of the UK’s finest indie artists. Year’s End Festival aims to celebrate what the label does and bring indie fans together to share their love of the genre and enjoy an end-of-year blowout to the soundtrack of their future favourite band.
