Apply to Perform

Performing at The Big Weekend

Each year, we offer artists the chance to perform on our stages. This is a great opportunity to showcase you or your band to thousands of people at The Big Weekend.

We are looking for live acts, live PAs, bands, DJs or something completely different.

Expenses

As we are a charity, we ask that artists who perform to kindly donate their fee to the Manchester Pride Community Fund. We are able to pay reasonable out of pocket expenses.

What to send us

If you would like a chance to perform on one of our stages, please email us with the following:

1. Links to live performance. We do not book any artist without seeing live performances

2. Your official website and Social Media accounts 

3. FIVE words to describe yourself as artists

4. If you are a DJ, please send links to your Soundcloud / Mixcloud pages 

PLEASE DO NOT SEND A LENGTHY BIO AS IT WILL NOT BE READ. 

The artist team assess every submission that comes in. However, due to the high volume of applications, we are only able to contact those we would like to book for this year. 

If we haven't contacted you this time, thank you for your interest and we'll keep your details on file for next year.
