A new, two day micro-Festival celebrating grassroots live music, creative collaboration, community networking and multimedia art/film and performance.


A joint venture between Manchester record labels AnalogueTrash and Valentine Records, and featuring an eclectic line up of label artists and friends, FOUNDATIONS is about art, space and community – and how we can reimagine a conventional music festival as a more collaborative and immersive experience.


Foundations is about beginnings.  It’s a recognition that, despite the high-flying nature of many of Greater Manchester’s cultural exports and thriving international reputation across the arts, it’s actually the grassroots, the pop-ups, start-ups and off-the-wall thinking that both provokes and sustains the art/music/film and creative communities in and around the city.


FOUNDATIONS 2016 features 16 bands and artists across two stages and two days, plus DJ sets, presenting an eclectic lineup that we’re confident you’ll find both engaging and enjoyable.


Friday 25th & Saturday 26th of November 2016


The Kings Arms, 11 Bloom Street, Salford, M3 6AN
