mjf is a not for profit charity and we rely on the support of our trusted mjf friends, who feel as passionately about our work as we do. Could you become an mjf friend?

As Manchester’s longest running music festival, we’ve given so much music to the city over years and helped launch the career of a host of artists.

With your help, we can commission more ambitious projects, support more young players across the north west and create more opportunities for them to play an active part in the festival.

Your support will help promote emerging talent across the north west and beyond and allow mjf to continue our ambitious, eclectic and unmissable festival to many more people.

As a thanks for your support, you’ll get a range of festival perks including priority booking before tickets go on general sale, queue jumps at the gigs themselves and exclusive invitations to our launch party and other events. You’ll also get 20% of all ticket purchases on the full festival programme as it’s announced.
